AMG Railing offers products of the best quality Stainless Steel and aluminium. Stainless steel products are offered in 2 qualities: 304 for indoor use, 316 for outdoor use.
We also have zamak glass clamps in our assortment (zinc-alloy with a stainless steel-look finish). We advise these only for indoor use.
Of course, fall-through safety in a barrier is of essential importance. Our glass balustrade systems have been calculated thoroughly and are tested in-situ in various situations.
Systems of the AMG glassclamp program meet international certifications in the field of security. Our glass balustrades have been tested for safety by notified bodies in multipe countries. Therefore our systems can be used throughout Europe.
Among others, AMG Railing glass barrier systems meet the regulations of:
- Dutch Building Regulations: Nederlands Bouwbesluit 2012
- French CSTB of the Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment
- German AbP: ‘Allgemeines bauaufsichtliches Prüfzeugnis’. AbP is a German abbreviation referring to the "General Building Codes Test Certificate"
- Belgian Standard: NBN B 03-004
In addition, regularly tests are done in-situ on completed projects to prove safety. These are practical tests where the fall-through safety of the balustrade is tested in that particular project. It is done by swinging a 50 kg leather sack filled with tiny glass beads is swung against the barrier. The glass balustrade may not fail / collapse. The AMG glass balustrades have always passed these tests without problem.
