One Channel to Rule Them All….

Barrier Components popular SABCO frameless balustrade system has passed the rigorous 3kN test with flying colours, confirming it offers the quality and performance for ANY commercial or residential installation. What’s more, this system didn’t need any adaption to pass only requiring additional clamps, proving that this is a market leading design.  SABCO can now therefore be specified with confidence for all installations from stadia, airports and railway stations to commercial, residential and domestic developments.


Barrier-SABCO is a balustrade hardware system boasting a hi-tech, sleek and minimal finish and offers the perfect cost effective solution for Frameless glass providing an installation that’s designed to be simple to install and achieve BS EN 6180:2011*.

The system offers some great unique features. It only requires 400mm fixing centres to achieve the 1.5kN performance which is reduced to 200mm for 3Kn. It allows for easy alignment of the glass during installation providing up to +/-15mm adjustment either way. Tightening is achieved using torx screws that can be tightened easily with a cordless screwdriver – speeding up the install time. The system includes removable covers (anodised to Marine grade 20 microns) to allow the installation of the channel without risk of damaging the finish. The natural or Satin stainless anodised covers are then simply fitted at the end of the operation.  The system can also be supplied in either a base mount or side mount and in two finishes – Natural Anodised or Stainless Steel effect Anodised.  Both finishes are 20 microns thick so perfect for coastal or clean room applications.

SABCO has been designed to accommodate LED Strips running across the bottom of the clamp which allows the light to be directed straight through the glass enhancing the overall effect.
