Testing Information

System is load tested to meet 0.74 KN/m UDL – suitable for residential and light commercial use  - test data available on request

  • Product testing was conducted on a concrete floor -  Deflection performance of balustrade (under load) can vary from test data if mounting to other substrates, ultimately the performance of balustrade will be determined by the strength of substrate and quality of fixing achieved -  we advise consulting a structural engineer to check suitability of substrate.

Fixing anchors

Floor Fixing anchors are not supplied by WPS – use appropriate anchors for mounting substrate

System was tested into concrete using M10 stainless steel rod (100mm length)  – fixed into concrete with Fischer Hybrid Mortar resin and secured with M10 Washers and nuts.
