Laurence is a leading manufacturer of architectural glass and metal products that is firmly committed to developing certified, code-compliant hardware that meet the highest standards for quality, safety, and operation. This guiding principle has lead CRL to receive full Australian compliance and certified engineering on the Friction Fit Spigots for use as balustrades, windscreens, and pool enclosures.
CRL's newest hardware system of Friction Fit Spigots underwent three tests, all using 1500 mm wide glass panels. The trusted N.S.W.-based engineering and testing facility, Azuma Design assessed the Friction Fit Spigots with SL30 Round Rail Caps at 1000 mm high for balustrades, with SLS30 Square Rail Caps at 1000 mm high for balustrades, and at 1200 mm high for pool fences.
Precisely engineered CRL Friction Fit Spigots outperform competitors' spigots as they are durable and require no special glass fabrication. Most spigot systems operate by securing glass panels through drilled holes that the spigots are fastened through. However, CRL's square and round Friction Fit Spigots feature special engineered plates that hold up 12 mm thick, toughened glass with no bolts or holes.
"Our Friction Fit Spigots are trusted options for the pool fencing, and commercial and residential balustrades markets. We are proud that our spigots' quality assurance aligns with Australia's high standards," says David Bremner, Managing Director of C.R. Laurence Australia. "We aim to manufacture the best architectural products and systems that surpass strict industry regulations, and satisfy our customers."
Friction Fit Spigots have Alloy 316 low carbon grade stainless steel construction that makes them ideal for indoor and outdoor use in both residential and commercial settings. They provide a versatile, contemporary hardware system that has been thoroughly tested and certified by C.R. Laurence and the NATA-accredited quality testing organization, Azuma Design.
