    Due to the design of the wall below (concrete filled cavity wall) and the fact the glass had to overhang the slab edge to be non-scaleable these bespoke posts were made, kinda designed it's self this job...

    this is the walkway on the other side of the building

    lots of horrible angle changes in the ramp to deal with (regs require a landing half way down)

    Almost there with the caps, but still required a little touch with a scotch and paper wheel. Loving the gas lens at this point :thumbup:
    Any pointers/tips/comments welcome,

    Very nice. Did you template the glass after fitting the posts?

    A lot of thought and energy has gone into tha nice simple design.
    Somebody needs shooting for building that change in incline.

    No mate it was done from some scribbly drawings, fitted it all in about 4 days altogether. I can see the merits of a beautiful CAD drawing but both sides of the walkway were different and after calculating the angles I just ran with it and ordered up some glass. :o

    Very nice. Don't normally like this stuff but it has just enough different to break the " buy it ready wrapped" look
    Well done!
