Safety Concerns Lead to Formulation of Stringent Regulations

Over the past couple of decades, within the construction sector, stringent safety regulations have been formulated. Moreover, apart from focusing on the aesthetics and appearance of balustrades, stakeholders in the balustrade market are required to adhere to balustrade standards and regulations. In recent times, government regulatory bodies across the world have formulated specific regulations that address some important points pertaining to the installation of balustrades. Some of the critical points that are listed in these regulations include height, material of balustrade, and sturdiness of balustrades.

For instance, the Building Code of Australia (BCA) has laid down building codes and standards that are applicable to multiple stages of construction – from laying the foundation to intricate facets of construction, including balustrades. These regulations and standards are applicable to all types of balustrades and are largely formulated to enhance safety and prevent accidents across all types of properties in Australia.
