TORONTO, Dec. 10, 2012 /CNW/ - EnTechBiss, a Canadian company with
experience building in the Caribbean and Europe, is introducing a new
patent-pending technology for a balcony guard rail system in high-rise
"In the Caribbean, we have to build glass balcony systems that can
withstand hurricane-strength winds, salt from the ocean, constant hot
temperatures and other harsh environmental conditions," said Mr. Lewis,
Managing Director of EnTechBiss. "We've used our learning from these
high safety standards, to create a balcony guard rail system for high
rise condominium construction that is specifically designed to handle
our Canadian environment and weather variations."
The new SkyRiseRailings system is manufactured to the highest standards
in Europe using industry-leading production facilities. It features
EnTechBiss' exclusive thin designed, cold rolled profile - stainless
steel guard railings instead of today's standard aluminum. The company
developed a tempered laminate glass called EntechTL as part of the
total system in order to provide double safety measures.
Other unique features of the SkyRiseRailings system include:
1.5mm to 2mm thick stainless steel profiles from "cold rolled profiles"
technology provide unparalleled mechanical strength and performance
All fittings and screws are 100% stainless steel
These guard rail systems have easy installation and glass mounting
Several steel or powder coated finishing options offer greater aesthetic
High resistance, high stability steel profiles are maintenance-free
Customizable designs support cutting-edge applications for private,
public and special projects
Superior quality product is a cost-effective, long-term investment -
designed to last for decades, with proprietary designs that make glass
replacements (if needed) easy at one-twelfth the price of standard
systems currently used today
EnTechBiss is the only company in Canada offering this unique
SkyRiseRailings system. It was developed specifically for the Canadian
and North America construction industry, which is presently looking at
alternate solutions for balcony guard rail systems. The SkyRiseRailings
system answers that call, offering a sure-fire way of reducing the
probability of glass panels breaking, and preventing potential injuries
to people in the vicinity of a building that has falling broken glass.
"We drew upon our own expertise working in international markets, but we
also reviewed global best practices in order to develop this innovative
guard rail system for Canada," said Lewis. "We've worked closely with
key players and stakeholders in the construction industry who have been
focused on addressing the challenges of falling glass panels from
"Recent media headlines and government scrutiny have put this issue
front and centre among homebuyers too," added Lewis. "But we now have a
proven, safe and reliable solution to put those concerns at ease."
The SkyRiseRailings system is fully compliant and in fact, exceeds the
new regulations set forth this summer by the Government of Ontario.
