Test Data

All of our channel systems are supplied in strict compliance with all safety load bearing requirements. The relevant test certification can be provided on request with every order. The load bearing ratings for railing systems are set out in the British standard BS EN6180:2011. This specifies the Kn per meter that the balustrade is required to withstand without exceeding deflection of more than 25mm. The structural performance of a balustrade varies depending on the use and occupancy level of the building concerned. Advice should always be sort from a structural engineer, particularly when fixing on to concrete.
