Easy Glass balustrade earns unique AbZ approval

Q-railing’s focus on quality and safety pays off every time. The Easy Glass MOD 0749 glass balustrade has received a German ‘AbZ’ approval.

That makes it one of only a few glass adapter systems in the world that are approved for creating a structural glass balustrade.  

Approval of glass adapters is not, in itself, that rare. There are other suppliers who offer AbZ approved adapters. However, in this case, the approval is unique. Having been granted an AbZ approval, the Easy Glass MOD 0749 system is now one of only a few glass adapter systems (or maybe even the only system in the world) approved for use as a structural glass balustrade. Whereas other glass adapters need to be positioned at all 4 corners of a glass panel to create an approved structural glass balustrade, the MOD 0749 adapters only need to be positioned at the bottom.

Approved glass balustrade

AbZ is short for ‘Allgemeine bauaufsichtliche Zulassung’, meaning ‘general building inspectorate approvals’. AbZ approvals promote structural safety by clearly identifying those materials and techniques that are considered acceptable.

The AbZ approval of Easy Glass MOD 0749 means you can create an approved glass balustrade that has these glass adapters holding glass panels up to 1,500 mm high and, incredibly, 2,500 mm wide!

The specific heights, widths and distances between adapters depend on the actual mounting situation. Don’t hesitate to contact us for more information or to get a free copy of the certificate.

Adjustable glass adapter

A special feature of the Easy Glass MOD 0749 glass adapter is its built-in adjustability. This makes it easy to straighten the glass panels on site. Easy Glass MOD 0749 also offers a choice of fixing methods: the base can accommodate a mechanical anchor, to be used for concrete walls, or a bolt for connection to a metal stringer. With this ingenious glass balustrade system, you can also choose how close to the wall your glass will be.
