Dry Glaze Glass Balustrade System: TAPER-LOC®

C.R. Laurence of Europe Ltd

TAPER-LOC® is a Glass Balustrade System designed for beautiful and simplistic frameless glass balustrade applications.

The patented horizontal Taper-Loc® system makes things easier for the installer too. Allowing installation and removal of glass panels within minutes, the system reduces fitting time by more than 50% as it is a unique design that uses precision tension to secure the glass in the aluminium base shoe without the use of cement. Using CRL’s exclusive TLK12 installation and removal tool, the Tapers simply slide horizontally in the base shoe before being compressed, where it expands and locks into place.

A new fast seal gasket has just been added to the range to enable the entire installation to be carried out from the ‘safe’ side of the balustrade. This includes all aspects of the installation such as fixing the base shoe, external safety seal gasket, the glass and internal gasket. This is particularly useful when replacing a broken or scratched glass panel as it eradicates the need for expensive scaffolding altogether and the tapers can simply be unlocked to free the old glass panel and then relocked to secure the new glass panel into​ place.

The CRL TAPER-LOC® System supports all mounting methods and is designed to meet and exceed code standards. TAPER-LOC® is designed to be used on internal and external applications, and partners perfectly with CRL's Heavy Aluminium Base Shoe and Premium Top Cap Rails. CRL supply the entire range of balustrade accessories and tools, and can also assist with design plans.
