10 Reasons to use Stand-off Fittings

Structural & decorative

Our stand-off fittings come in both 50mm diameter and 30mm diameter. The 50mm diameter stand-offs are a structural fixing, that is suitable for all frameless glass balustrades. 30mm diameter stand-off fittings aren’t considered structural, and are rarely used for balustrades. These are more often used as a fixing for decorative signage, where loading requirements are not a factor.

Suits any thickness of glass

This system is extremely versatile, and stand-offs fittings are completely customisable. A stand-off is made up of 3 main parts, the front boss, back spacer, and threaded stud. As all 3 parts separate, any thickness of glass can be used.

Adapts to different substrates

We can supply suitable fixing to suit many different substrates. The installation method for stand-offs and glass depends on what type of substrate you are fixing into. Download our free installation guide for more details, or get in touch for technical advice.

Sleek and discreet fixing

Stand-off fittings can be used in situations where frameless channel would be too bulky. Both standoffs and channel create a similar frameless balustrade, but standoff fittings are much more discreet and unobtrusive.

Easy to conceal on stairs

As the stand-off fittings are so narrow and discreet, they are ideal for using on stairs where the client doesn’t want fixings to be seen. As using the backspacer is optional, they are easy to box in. This results in stunning wooden staircases!
