The PlateFix PF150 is a side fixed frameless glass balustrade system 

Design

The PlateFix PF150 was born from the double disc fixings by joining the discs into a single piece profile base plate with a outer clamping plate for a stronger multipurpose balustrade fixing.

This enables the PF150 to be used with single or double fixings and it can be used vertically, horizontally, angled or a combination of the above.

Type

The PlateFix PF150 is 150mm high and 50mm wide with radius ends.

The inner spacer is 20mm thick and the outer plate 6mm thick.

 

Material & Finish

The PlateFix PF150 is made from 316 grade stainless steel and is available in satin or polished finish. A special bead blast finish is available.
