Beach Houses, Margate
March 2020

Easymount Vario balustrading from BOHLE has been installed in the ‘Beach Houses’, a development of two-bedroom, two-storey properties built on the site of the former Royal Sea Bathing Hospital, Margate.

Paul Groves, Contracts Manager, PGS Glass, which installed the 85m long ground level balustrading along the fronts of the 11 properties, explained: “We were brought onto the project because the ground floor wall wasn’t high enough to meet requirements. This meant that the developer WW Martin, was looking for a solution which allowed them to preserve the view from the lower balcony looking out over the bay, which meant that they didn’t want a rail and post system.”

The solution adopted by PGS Glass and WW Martin, was the Bohle EasyMount Top L mount profile, which supplied in 2.5m anodised aluminium, achieves a 3.0kN line loading with the Vario mounting kit. It combined this, with 17.5mmm toughened laminate to create a 500mm high balustrade above the line of brickwork.
