Australian National Construction Code requirements for balustrading

ENCAT has always maintained a strict adherence to meeting or exceeding Australian Standards when we design, develop or manufacture our products. The National Construction Code (NCC) is a uniform set of technical provisions for the design, construction, performance of buildings, plumbing and drainage systems throughout Australia. It is published and maintained by the Australian Building Codes Board, on behalf of and in collaboration with the Australian Government and each State and Territory Government.

When installing commercial balustrades there are certain requirements that must be met to keep people safe in public areas. Below is an excerpt from National Construction Code (NCC) 2014 D2.16 Balustrades or other barriers

(a) A continuous balustrade or other barrier, except for a barrier provided to an openable window covered by D2.24, must be provided along the side of any roof to which public access is provided, any stairway or ramp, any floor, corridor, hallway, balcony, deck, veranda, mezzanine, access bridge or the like and along the side of any delineated path of access to a building, if—

ii it is not bounded by a wall; and

iii its level above the surface beneath, is more than 1 m.

(h) Openings in a balustrade or other barrier must be constructed in accordance with the following:

(ii) For a balustrade or other barrier other than those provided under (c)—

(A) any opening does not permit a 125 mm sphere to pass through it and for stairs, the opening is measured above the nosing line of the stair treads; and

(B) for floors more than 4 m above the surface beneath, any horizontal or near horizontal elements between 150 mm and 760 mm above the floor must not facilitate climbing

3.6 BARRIERS

Barriers, including parapets, balustrades and railings, together with members and connections that provide structural support, shall be designed to sustain the imposed actions given in Table 3.3. The top edge or handrail shall also be designed for the case where a concentrated load of 0.6 kN, positioned for the worst effect, acts inward, outward or downward.

The uniformly distributed line load and the uniformly distributed and concentrated loads applicable to the infill are not additive. They shall be considered as three separate load cases.

We can be contracted for any type of balustrading design brief to create a solution to suit your existing site conditions.

It means that every element is designed to meet all the required local government regulations and you can ensure tight control over production quality.
 
We offer a range of stainless or galvanised steel designs that can be supplied as modular pieces to minimise maintenance requirements.
