Low-cost stainless steel guard rail technology for high rise condo balconies now available in Canada

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 condominiums.

"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 features
  • Several steel or powder coated finishing options offer greater aesthetic options
  • 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 high-rise condos."

"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.
