Building to Regulation: A Guide to SANS Balustrading Codes


Building and design regulations play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and integrity of structures. When it comes to balustrades, adherence to the South African National Standards (SANS) regulations is of utmost importance. Balustrades not only enhance the aesthetics of a space but also serve as a vital safety feature, providing protection and preventing falls in various settings. In this guide, we will explore the elegance of Tensile Cables Stainless Steel Cable balustrades and delve into the key aspects of SANS balustrading codes.

The use of Stainless Steel cables and uprights provides an unobstructed view while maintaining structural integrity. With Tensile Cables balustrade systems the balustrade appears to fade from view, offering an elegant and seamless design solution.

Understanding SANS 10400:

SANS 10400 governs the requirements for balustrades, handrails, and guarding. It stipulates the minimum height requirements for balustrades in different settings. For general locations, balustrades should have a minimum height ranging from 1000mm to 1200mm. They also state that a sphere of 100mm in diameter should not be able to pass through at any given point in the balustrading. However, it’s important to note that different requirements apply when constructing balustrades around swimming baths or pools to enhance safety.

Ensuring Safety: SANS 10160 Specifications:

To ensure the safety and durability of balustrades, it is vital to meet the load requirements outlined in SANS 10160. This specification categorizes areas based on their expected occupancy load. Certain areas, such as staircases and assembly areas, have higher load requirements than others. SANS 10160 specifies the appropriate load specifications for each area category, ensuring the strength and safety of balustrades.


Adhering to SANS balustrading codes is essential for creating safe and compliant structures. Balustrades not only add elegance to spaces but also serve as a crucial safety feature. Tensile Cables balustrade cable solutions combine aesthetic appeal with structural integrity, offering a seamless and sophisticated design. By following the SANS regulations and considering Tensile Cables balustrade solutions, you can ensure the safety and beauty of your next project. Remember, building to regulation is a vital step in creating spaces that stand the test of time and prioritize the well-being of occupants.
