CRL Taper-Loc® is a dry-glazed system for frameless glass balustrades, comprising a base shoe and optional handrail, negating the need for posts. The base shoe can be surface, side-mounted or even installed inside the substrate, so tiles run up directly to the glass. The system can accommodate glass thicknesses from 17.52 to 25.52mm and is compliant with all major European standards including BS 6180:2011.
The patented horizontal Taper-Loc® system makes things easier for the installer too.
Allowing installation and removal of glass panels within minutes from the ‘safe’ side of the balustrade, the system significantly reduces fitting time, using precision tension to secure the glass in the aluminium base shoe without the use of cement. Using CRL’s exclusive TLK12 installation and removal tool, the Tapers simply slide horizontally in the base shoe before being compressed, where it expands and locks into place.
