Blast Enhanced Ballustrading

Billings Jackson collaborated with anti-terrorist engineers Crossley Consult to develop a unique blast-enhanced glass railing system for Q-railing. An increasing demand for high security environments has highlighted the need for building materials and product systems that optimise public safety without compromising architectural vision.

This ballustrading is the only modular system that meets these criteria and is also designed for time-saving 'dry-fix' installation. In the event of an explosion the glass will fail without fragmenting. The handrail is tethered to the base to withstand shock waves and remain secure. A second blast resistant product, a high-performance waste bin, has been developed with Crossley and Lindner.
