Balcony balustrade glass issues
NSi (Nickel Sulphide inclusion) is the most common issue in case of the damaged balcony balustrade glass units. This factory error occur mainly when the glass unit tempered and made “toughened safety glass”. In this cases the glass unit shatters without any particular external impact, but sometimes heat and heat expansion, generated by the sunshine can be observed. Another reason can be a wrong installation manner by the builders, when the holding structure and/or its moving can produce this awkward and dangerous glazing issue. Sometimes these glasses can be damaged by people (external physical impacts), but as these types of glasses are really tough and they can resist a huge external impacts, these unexpected random issues can be really surprising. However, all together this issue usually is a manufacturing error, what is inevitable in the manufacturing process. As the price of the “clear glass” incomparably lower than the “low iron glass” (what is much more reliable for this purpose) the choice of the construction industry is understandable immediately.
