Elan Balustrade

The Spectrum Range

Neaco’s Elan system is a stylish and minimalist alternative to the traditional balustrade, being a sleek cost-effective option compared to structural glass systems. Most balustrade designs secure glass infill panels in place by attaching them to the stanchions with a clip, but Elan’s glass panels are encapsulated by a top rail above and a subtle floor channel below.

Centric is our original stanchion, offering smooth, classic styling with an optional stem bracket. Centric is a highly flexible option with the ability to adapt to most angles or bends.

If you want sharp, clean looks, Quad's square profile is an excellent choice. Its contemporary style has made it a popular specification for high-end projects.

Tested in accordance with BS EN12600 Class 1, toughened safety glass panel infills can be clear or tinted depending on your needs or we could even create a Bespoke Etched Design if your aesthetics desire it.

Perforated panel infills can be powder coated in a range of colours and finishes. They provide a robust and durable option for high traffic areas.

Vertical Infill is made from steel railings with an aluminium stanchion and top rail.

Providing classic styling, our horizontal railed infills can be powder coated in a range of colours and finishes. The number of rails can vary according to preference and need and are available in a choice of diameters.

Neaco’s grout fixed detail requires core holes to be drilled on-site, please note core drilling is a wet trade so we advise this is done before any final finishes are applied.

Neaco’s base fixing detail utilises our custom extruded profile base plate, providing a solid platform for the stanchion to fix onto.

The tubular toprail is our most popular specification across all types of design schemes. As well as being economical, it meets compliance and Building Regulations for all types of environments.

The ovular toprail provides a profile which is wider than the tubular rail to create excellent strength for the glass to encapsulate in. Its unique design means it can only be used on straight runs and not raking.

Elan Balustrade

The balustrade is engineered to close tolerances, with quality formed bends eliminating the need for unsightly mitred joints. Component parts are mechanically secured with concealed fixings, requiring no welding and ensuring rapid assembly on-site (all fixings are supplied).

In accordance with BS EN12600 class 1, our toughened glass panel infills can be clear or tinted to create the ultimate penetration. Or for a more distinctive extra touch, we can also apply graphics on glass panels to generate a tailored etched Design.

Elan is also available as a modular balcony system here which offers the versatility to meet virtually any design requirement, no matter how complex.

Standard Colour Range

Our Elan balustrade can be manufactured in mill finish or powder-coated in a wide range of RAL colours. The balustrade can be utilised for internal and external applications. The system benefits from a Nylon powder coating which provides enhanced durability and allows Neaco to offer an industry-leading guarantee. Bespoke RAL colours can be achieved as we have our own in-house powder coating plant. The powder coating gives the balustrade a satin-smooth finish which is non-chip, permanent, hardwearing and abrasion-resistant. Handrails have excellent insulation properties, are warm to the touch and are comfortable to handle.

What is the difference between Elan and Neaco’s other glass balustrades?
They do not utilize the glass clips, instead the glass is held in a subtle floor channel.
What is a modular system?
Modular systems provide a huge range of modular components which are precision- manufactured off-site to an exacting standard, deliv­ered to the site and then assembled on-site. This means factory-controlled quality, faster installation, less mess, less waste and less energy con­sumption than products which are fabricated on-site. Spectrum's modular components are assembled with an internal connection system which requires no external fixtures and no welding for an ultra-smooth finish.
Why do we manufacture in Aluminium?
Aluminium is a great building material for many reasons: it provides maintenance-free durability and is also non-toxic, corrosive-free, non­combustible and 100% recyclable - a particularly useful feature for our Genesis industrial system designed for eco-friendly performance in the harshest environments. The permanent finish of neaco's nylon powder coating - a standard specification on most Spectrum systems - provides smooth, clean lines for comfortable touch and high aesthetic value. It's also worth noting that our stainless steel systems provide many similar benefits.
Why are our handrails "warm-to-touch"?
‘Warm-to-touch’ is a well-known phrase when it comes to handrails as it is an important building regulation when a handrail is utilised in high-traffic environments. Document K of the building regulations outlines that handrails should not “become excessively cold or hot to touch” (Ref 1.36 e, pg. 15). This is reinforced by section 5.10.5 of BS 8300. The concept is that handrails provide support on stairs or ramps, however, if the environment is subject to extreme temperatures and the handrail conducts this temperature, then this may cause reluctance to use the handrail and therefore cause a safety risk.
Is the glass suitable in high-traffic areas?
Glass is very strong and suitable for high-traffic areas - the glass is toughened in accordance with BS EN12600 class 1. It is ideal for buildings likely to be used by children, where safety on staircases and landings is paramount - the system is very difficult for children to climb and there are no gaps through which they could pass.
Does Neaco Install as well as Supply?
Yes, we provide a full installation service in addition to technical support and consultation throughout the specification process. Our team of experts is always on hand to assist at every stage.
Do Neaco offer bespoke solutions?
Yes, absolutely. Over the years we have worked with numerous architects and designers to incorporate bespoke features outside of our standard specifications, including light fittings to the top of stanchions, etched designs to glass infills and structural glass installed at unusual angles. We pride ourselves on the flexibility and adaptability of our technical support services, so please feel free to discuss your particular requirements with one of our team.
