Compatible infill materials include glass, resin, perforated stainless-steel panels, woven stainless-steel cables and steel infill rods. Clients can specify fasteners, secondary handrails, LED light systems, rail endings and more.

HDI balustrade systems are supplied ready to assemble on site, while components arrive in pre-assembled sections individually tagged for easy identification during installation. The technical sales team syncs balustrade systems with the relevant regional building codes for safety and accessibility. 

Products are manufactured from a variety of sustainable materials, including round, rectangular and elliptical stainless steel in grades 304 and 316. Ferric railings are available in a choice of colours.

To ensure precision, HDI uses Revit software as its preferred drafting medium. Revit modelling produces renderings with more detail than standard drafting software and Revit files are offered to all clients during the supply process.
