Austvision AlphaLink

Glass Balustrade Connector

The Austvision  AlphaLink is a profiled glass link connector designed primarily for balustrade infill panels, pool fences and internal glass screens connected to posts and balusters.

The AlphaLink uses a simple technique of connecting Toughened Safety Glass panels to a post or frame by means of a slotted fixing and pre-located M10 bolt and tightening nut. This avoids the need for welding tabs to the post and makes measuring and installation easier. It can also be adjusted for angle to address inaccuracies on site for floor levels and stair rakes.

 

Types

The AlphaLink is available with 2 fixing options;

SD50/150 – 50mm stepped disc glass bolt connector

CS50/150 – 50mm countersunk disc glass bolt connector

 

Material and Finish

The fittings are cast 316 marine grade stainless steel in satin and polished finish.

 

Installation

The AlphaLink can be used with Metro GlassTech TempaFloat, TempaSoak, TempaScreen or TempaPrint Toughened Safety Glass (TSG) or SafeLite Toughened Laminated Safety Glass (TLSG)
