Attention Builders: Site Requirements for Balustrade Installation

Site Requirements For Balustrades

It's that time of year again! With the run up to Christmas being one of the busiest times of the year, we are experiencing an increase to some of our normal lead times. Absolute Balustrades will close for the holidays from 1pm on Tuesday 23rd December 2014 and re-open on Monday 12th January 2015.

Our current lead times do not include our Christmas closure period and our installation schedule is now fully committed prior to Christmas. Please contact one of our sales representatives to discuss any specific date requirements.

To help ensure your job runs smoothly and is completed on time, we have put together a checklist of requirements below that need to be met on site to assure your site is ready for measure & installation. Failure to do so will delay your installation time frame.

  • All Walls and Piers built
  • Stone work, Cladding, Rendering and Plastering are complete
  • For planar fixed glass, we recommend painting to be complete prior to installation.
  • Stringer Board and Bull Noses are complete
  • Timber treads on stairs are complete
  • Extra Timbers in place under flooring (where required)
  • Floor Treatments (installing prior to balustrade) - must be laid/complete
  • Floor Treatments (installing after balustrade) thicknesses of floor treatment must be confirmed prior to the site measure
  • Access is required through the property - no measure/install will be performed from ladders
  • Power must be accessible
  • Vehicle Gates - conduit placement confirmed & Floor Treatments must be laid/completed before measure to confirm levels
  • General Gates - Any special requirements (e.g. gap allowances) have been confirmed on or before site measure
  • All selections including your handrail profile & colour must be confirmed before site measure.

Unsure if your site is ready?  Contact your sales representatives to discuss any job specific requirements to avoid any increases to your quoted lead time.
*Please note that if ABS are booked to complete a measure or installation and we are unable to complete due to the site not being ready, an additional site visit charge will apply.*

Also be mindful that we do require all invoices and/or accounts to be paid within the agreed payment terms.  To avoid any delays in installation, please ensure your account is up to date.

Only 6 weeks till Christmas…...Are you ready for the Pre-Christmas rush?
