CUSTOM DESIGNS TO SUIT ANY PUBLIC SPACE

ENCAT is an Australian manufacturer of cycleway balustrade systems that can be custom made to suit any type of site – existing or new that are suitable for both on-road and separated bike path applications. ENCAT’s cycle barriers system is made to the same quality standards that has made us an industry leader for pedestrian safety in Australia.

Transport for NSW initiated Movement and Place, a cross-government framework for planning and managing roads and streets across the state. It considers the whole street by addressing the needs of all users, including pedestrians, bicycle riders, deliveries, private vehicles, and public transport. 

That is why we are seeing so many changes to our road systems that are aimed to cater to the changes in society and growing population. A cycleway can make a significant difference, helping to relieve congestion in busy corridors while boosting safety for all users on the road, footpaths or even bridge crossings.

There are five internationally recognised design principles that cycling-friendly infrastructure needs to meet;

  • Safety.
  • Connectivity.
  • Directness.
  • Attractive.
  • Comfort.
 

ENCAT‘s engineering team is able to completely customise our cycleway balustrade system to the requirements of each site with complete flexibility to the design, material and finishes available. 

It means we can help you effortlessly deliver on worldwide design principles as well as integrate with other roadside assets such as Pedestrian Fencing, outdoor seating, bus shelters, boardwalks or other elements that are required to help manage people or vehicle traffic flows.

We are able to work closely with architects, designers or civil works contractors to design bespoke balustrade systems to suit any type of location in residential areas, major cities or coastal areas. 

Our Australian hot dip galvanising process prevents deterioration from the elements for added durability & reduced maintenance requirements. There is also the option to have it painted in any colour to suit the application.

ENCAT has been supplying councils, schools or building contractors for many years. Everything we manufacture is designed locally and manufactured to meet Australian standards and safety requirements.

Australian National Construction Code requirements for balustrading

ENCAT has always maintained a strict adherence to meeting or exceeding Australian Standards when we design, develop or manufacture our products. The National Construction Code (NCC) is a uniform set of technical provisions for the design, construction, performance of buildings, plumbing and drainage systems throughout Australia. It is published and maintained by the Australian Building Codes Board, on behalf of and in collaboration with the Australian Government and each State and Territory Government.

When installing commercial balustrades there are certain requirements that must be met to keep people safe in public areas. Below is an excerpt from National Construction Code (NCC) 2014 D2.16 Balustrades or other barriers

(a) A continuous balustrade or other barrier, except for a barrier provided to an openable window covered by D2.24, must be provided along the side of any roof to which public access is provided, any stairway or ramp, any floor, corridor, hallway, balcony, deck, veranda, mezzanine, access bridge or the like and along the side of any delineated path of access to a building, if—

ii it is not bounded by a wall; and

iii its level above the surface beneath, is more than 1 m.

(h) Openings in a balustrade or other barrier must be constructed in accordance with the following:

(ii) For a balustrade or other barrier other than those provided under (c)—

(A) any opening does not permit a 125 mm sphere to pass through it and for stairs, the opening is measured above the nosing line of the stair treads; and

(B) for floors more than 4 m above the surface beneath, any horizontal or near horizontal elements between 150 mm and 760 mm above the floor must not facilitate climbing

3.6 BARRIERS

Barriers, including parapets, balustrades and railings, together with members and connections that provide structural support, shall be designed to sustain the imposed actions given in Table 3.3. The top edge or handrail shall also be designed for the case where a concentrated load of 0.6 kN, positioned for the worst effect, acts inward, outward or downward.

The uniformly distributed line load and the uniformly distributed and concentrated loads applicable to the infill are not additive. They shall be considered as three separate load cases.

  • New South Wales manufacturing and fabrication with tight quality control.

     

  • Experience working with difficult to access or busy public spaces.

We can be contracted for any type of balustrading design brief to create a solution to suit your existing site conditions. Be choosning ENCAY as your balustrade manufacturer you get to deal directly with the factory rather than indirectly through contractors or other 3rd parties. It means that every element is designed to meet all the required local government regulations and you can ensure tight control over production quality.
 
We offer a range of stainless or galvanised steel designs that can be supplied as modular pieces to minimise maintenance requirements. Our galvanised balustrade systems are perfectly suited to either industrial or commercial sites & can be powder coated if required to match the colouring of the surrounding infrastructure.
