Swisspacer UK is extending its La Defender balustrade system offering following the introduction of the Pico residential system earlier this year.

The La Defender range for commercial as well as residential now includes options, from slim 6x6mm systems for residential developments through to 12x12mm systems with 3KN loads for the most demanding commercial projects.

The systems are tested to British and European standards for glass barriers inside and outside buildings, with continuous gaskets maximising performance through the glass and anodised aluminium covers offering enhanced durability. 

John Cooper, Commercial Director, Swisspacer UK & Ireland, said: “This comprehensive range offers solutions for a variety of applications, including residential and newbuild developments and large-scale commercial projects such as shopping centres, public buildings and sports venues.
