structural calculations - Balcony SystemsPhilippa Dixon BSc CEng MICE. VERTICAL loads: As specified in Clause 10 of BS 6399-1:1996, the handrail is also designed for a vertical uniformly distributed load of 0.60 kN/m or a concentrated load of 1.0 kN, whichever gives the worst design condition in combination with the horizontal loading in Table 4. Vertical loads are transmitted direct to the balcony structure through the 10mm thick thermally toughened safety glass. The concentrated load of 1.0 kN is spread by the handrail ...

AS/NZS 1170 also provides recommendations for deflection limits in Table. C1 and these are more stringent than the normal allowable deflection requirements for toughened glass balustrades, which are span/60 for infill panels and height/30 or 30mm maximum for freestanding glass. It is important to remember that when balustrades have no handrail, the glass is required to support the handrail ...

Handrail Design in Australia - which Standard do I usehandrail design in Australia - which Standard do I use? Chris Dowding - Monday, March 20, 2017. When specifying any handrail, in our opinion it's very important to: a) nominate the required design load; and b) to nominate a design geometry that minimises safety risks for the people who are going to use the handrail. For example, the height and gaps are important, to minimise the risk of children falling. c) help your Contractor by clarifying which Code(s) and design loads you expect ...

handrails and guardrails. - American Institute of Steel Constructionstructural design Criteria. The 2006 IBC requires that handrails, guardrails, and their sup- ports be designed for 50 lb per linear foot, applied in any direction at the top of the top rail, and a concentrated load of 200 lb applied in any direction at any location along the top of the top rail. The uniform load and concentrated loads are not to be applied simul- taneously. Other components, including guardrail infill and bot- tom rails, are to be designed for 100 lb acting on a projected area.
