VT1 Base Plate
The VT1 glass clamp is a top mount system with an oval shaped base plate for fixing to concrete or timber surfaces. The spigot and base plate cap is avalable in polished or satin stainless steel as standard, but can be powdercoated to any ot the common NZ powdercoat ranges. The spigot is made of 2205 DUPLEX Stainless Steel with higher corrosion resistance and double the strength than 316 steel. Clamps come with a friction mount to suit 12mm glass.
VT2 Hidden Fixing
The VT2 Hidden Fixing spigots have two fixture locations hidden beneath the base for a sleek, minimalistic top mount look. The clamps are avalable in polished or satin stainless steel, but as with the VT1 can be powdercoated to any ot the common NZ powdercoat ranges. The spigot is made of 2205 DUPLEX Stainless Steel and come with a friction mount to suit 12mm glass as standard.
VT2 Edge Fixing
The VT2 edge fixing system provides space saving solutions in narrow decks and walkway areas. The side mounted nature of the design also directs a large portion of the water over the edge. This may aid to solve and existing waterproofing issues where top mounted models may have directed too much water onto the floor. When installing, many face fix systems require a scaffold but with this hybrid down/face fix system it is possible to install the glass from the deck.
Engineered to withstand even the harshest coastal conditions, Duplex 2205 Stainless showcases remarkable resistance against corrosion, saltwater exposure, and environmental aggressors. The duplex structure of 2205 Stainless Steel ensures its ability to resist pitting, crevice corrosion, and chloride-induced stress corrosion cracking, making it an ideal choice for enduring challenging environments.
Choose from satin, polished, and black finishes as standard, or unleash your creativity with custom powder-coated options, offering a spectrum of colors and textures. With our range of finishes, your mini-posts will seamlessly blend with your design vision, adding a touch of sophistication and personalization to your space.

12mm toughened safety glass (top rail - or if not protecting a fall)
If used in a pool fencing or balustrading scenario when not protecting a fall greater than 1m the more cost effective toughened safety glass can be used. The glass is 12-15mm thick and clamped into the posts. In the unlikely event of a breakage, the glass shatters into small fragments.
Although the small individual fragments may be sharp on some edges, it is far less dangerous than the shards produced if a sheet of traditional float glass breaks.
For balconies or raised applications a top rail must be used with this style of glass.
Sentry glass - toughened and laminated (for safety in protecting a fall)
For the frameless look when protecting a fall greater than 1 metre, Sentry (or EVA Laminated) Glass must be used. Highly resistance to collapse, Sentry Glass interlayers are five times stronger and up to 100 times more rigid than other conventional interlayers. The interlayer stays together and upright even when both panes of glass have been broken.
If the glass ever breaks, fragments remain firmly bonded to the sentry glass interlayer, eliminating glass falling to the ground or over the edge.The glass retains its clarity, is extremely durable and resistant to clouding.
