Make your ideal handrail system a reality
Make your ideal handrail system a reality
If you are an architect, designer or building professional looking to make your ideal handrail system a reality then you’ve come to the right place. Here at Sapphire we are leading designers and manufacturers of attractive, high-quality, hard-wearing balustrades and as such we are able to furnish your project with an unrivalled combination of looks, build quality, value and safety. Moreover, we can also provide you with all the help you need to plan and manage its installation so you can be sure every aspect of your perfect handrail system will be suitably taken care of.
We are able to provide a choice of five different balustrade systems, each of which is defined by the aesthetic appearance of the balusters (the term used to describe the uprights which support the handrail and infill panels). These five options (Crystal™, Onyx®, Jasper®, Opal® and Aluma®) are designed to suite a wide range of styles, environments and applications so you can rest, assured that one or more of them will suitable fulfil your project unique requirements.
Crystal is the perfect choice for large atria and other similar balustrade applications. Indeed, its frameless structural glass panels ensure a wonderfully clear view and provide an unassuming lightness that is able to bring out the best in both traditional and contemporary buildings.
Onyx, our stainless steel baluster range is a visually appealing, low-maintenance solution which is ideal for communal areas in retail, commercial, residential, education and leisure settings. In addition to looking great by itself, Onyx can also be enhanced with hardwood handrails to give it a slightly more intimate feel. The handrails from our Onyx range are fully interchangeable with those of other systems and can be used as wall rails or grab rails alongside other systems.
Jasper is an elegant flat-baluster system which offers slim, contemporary sightlines. It can be used to great effect in both level and raking situations as it can be combined with practically any type of handrail system. Jasper provides the flexibility to enable specifiers a choice between twin flat or single flat uprights which can easily incorporate bespoke shapes which allows designers to customise their balustrade system whilst still retaining the benefits of a semi modular balustrade system.
Opal’s attractive and robust polyester powder-coated finish provides the perfect combination of durability, quality and value, so it is able to furnish any project with a winning visual complement or contrast. Exterior grade Opal is one of the finest solutions available for outdoor applications and with a coated stainless steel core, offers an excellent solution to entrance ramps and steps, particularly where DDA regulations are necessary and a not cold to the touch solution is required.
Aluma is a strong aluminium balustrade system that offers a simple, contemporary design in various shapes, sizes, finishes and colours. Handrails on Aluma systems are typically joined with hidden fixings to give clean lines and a neat appearance. The Aluma Range has successfully broken through the clutter of tradition by using fixing meathods inside the aluminium extruded balusters evolved through the desire to remove traditional glass clamp lugs
