EDGE is the latest member of the modular handrail and balustrade product range. As with CUBE, the system is derived from the desire to specify an alternative to tubular balusters whilst adhering to the strict philosophy of highly engineered, non-fabricated solutions. A single flat bar upright is so subtle, at a distance it virtually disappears from view.


Slotted barrels have the ability to slide vertically up and down the flat bar upright and therefore become anchor points for a variety of component connections, whether this be the handrail, infill panel, intermediate rails or structural fixings to the fabric of the building. Architecturally desirable transitions are created between the rectangular flat bar uprights passing through the tubular elements without any welding or bolted connection.

The modular rationale promotes a series of standard parts which adjust to any angle and perform multiple functions throughout the system.


The uprights and all associated component assemblies are produced in stainless steel and finished with a satin longitudinal polish to the uprights and all circular components are polished radially. Handrails are offered in stainless steel or natural hardwood and as upright centres vary for each fixing and type of scheme, our technical department should be consulted for additional guidance when creating project specifications.


Clean Lines

As with all products, EDGE is manufactured as a series of machined or cast fittings, mechanically connected together to create a highly engineered system with precise, clean lines between adjoining components. In true tradition, the EDGE system has a sharp, sophisticated appearance, unhindered by the presence of unsightly welds as can often impair bespoke fabrications.

Designed, Supplied, Installed

EDGE is available Internationally on a supply and installation basis as a specialist Architectural Handrail & Balustrade package procured directly by the Client, Developer or Principal Contractor.
