Latest News Tue, Aug 2, 2016 12:25 PM

C.R. Laurence’s TAPER-LOC® System has facilitated a speedy and simple installation of a new glass balustrade system at Dundee’s recent Olympia swimming and leisure complex.

The new complex features a 50 metre competition pool, wave pool, rapid river, dive pool, flumes and fitness suite. The Main Pool incorporates a movable floor and end walls to enable it to be reconfigured into a 25 metre Training Pool for clubs and public lane swimming.

The TAPER-LOC® System was used to create a beautiful frameless balustrade in several areas of the pool and leisure complex. The clean lines of balustrade solution offered a simple but effective method to enclose the different types of seating and staircase arrangements.

TAPER-LOC® is the simple way to install glass railings and balustrades it is 50% faster to install than traditional alternatives and as it is a totally dry glaze system there is no need for wet cement. The product is completely unique because it uses a horizontal TAPER-LOC® design, which allows the system to be adjusted, dismantled and re-set easily and efficiently. The TAPER-LOC® System conforms to BS6180:2011 and is ideal for replacing scratched and broken panels in existing applications.

Wattie Milne, of METALtech – Architectural Metalwork and Structural Glass Specialists who installed all the metalwork and the TAPER-LOC® system, commented, “CRL’s range of Architectural Hardware is first-rate. In particular, their TAPER-LOC® System enabled a fast and efficient installation, which not only makes our job easier but keeps costs to a minimum. Their products are also backed up with an excellent Technical Support division.”

Lisa Zebiche, Marketing Manager for CRL commented:
