In 1998, Q-railing introduced a very successful stainless steel modular railing system to the market. The idea on which Q-railing is based quickly came to fruition – namely to produce an independent and professional product range of railing systems featuring excellence in quality, functionality and design and to supply it to customers throughout Europe.
Q-Railing recommended installers Tri-dev were tasked with installing the Easy Glass® system for the new Chesterton Vision youth centre.
The Centre was awarded nearly £4.4 million under the ‘Myplace’ scheme, which is administered by the Big Fund, the non Lottery funding operation of the Big Lottery Fund. It has seen the site of the former Chesterton Youth Centre transformed into a ‘Vision Centre’, with state of the art facilities for the whole community.
Young people will be able to enjoy facilities including a dance studio, a gym, a chill out room, an e-magine suite, and a roof top garden.
County Councillor Lawrence said: “The Chesterton Vision Centre will provide a massive boost to the community of Chesterton, bringing with it state of the art facilities that will become a real focal point to the community.
“Seeing the site for the first time just brings it home what a large and exciting project this is, and I look forward to the centre really taking shape in the coming months”.
Tri-Dev has done a fantastic job fitting the balustrade, which gives the buildings interior a sleek and contemporary feel. Easy Glass® was used throughout as it offers superb style and stability without balustrade posts, allowing for seamless viewing of the stunning interior design.
In planning the Vision Centre, Tri-Dev designers understood that
a sophisticated balustrade can be the “crown jewel” in a project, a breathtaking design element that combines safety with style. Their attention to detail therefore included specifying the use of our high-quality glass railing systems both indoors and outdoors for use on the project’s staircases, walkways and balconies.
Using a unique top or side mounted aluminium profile they securely hold the glass in place with dry wedges made from EPDM rubber. These systems are adaptable for all kinds of situation with optional end pieces and designed for a variety of handrails and glass thicknesses. Most importantly as the name suggests they are easy to install in difficult situations, saving on time and money.
