Steel Studio

Accomplishes pronounced success with Hilti Tools

When specialist balustrade and staircase manufacturers, Steel Studio were appointed on the notable Discovery Head Office, there was no reservation that Hilti Tools and Anchoring systems would play an essential part in this installation. Hilti is the leading specialist in Anchor Systems, Diamond Coring and other essential equipment in the construction industry.

Steel Studio is a Johannesburg based company that specializes in manufacturing and installing balustrade and staircase systems that are not only safe and compliant with the South African National Standards but also complimented with cutting edge design and beauty.

Steel Studio has successfully used Hilti tools and anchoring systems for over 15 years. Hilti systems that were crucial in the installation of the glass balustrades and stainless steel balustrades throughout Discovery were Hilti Anchor Systems, Cordless Systems, Insert Tools, Diamond Coring, Cutting, Sawing and Grinding, Screw Fastening and Direct Fastening.

This project was constructed on a very tight schedule and timeous completion would have been unachievable if it wasn’t for accurate project planning by the Steel Studio team and the use of superior quality tools and machinery. The Steel Studio Project Management Team on the Discovery Project consisted of Rob Blackbeard (CEO), Wayne Robinson (Project Manager), Marc Cooney (Technical Draughtsman). Together with their dedicated involvement on this project and also the accurate use of Hilti tools and machines the deadline has been achieved.

The Discovery balustrades consisted of 12.76mm and 16.76mm thick toughened laminate safety glass housed in a mild steel channel that was fixed to the built sections by using custom fixing brackets and Hilti chemical anchors. The glass balustrade system also consisted of Custom Stainless steel handrail brackets and a custom handrail. Custom Stainless Steel Vertical Balustrades were installed on the outside areas.

Over and above Discovery, Steel Studio has successfully completed numerous other prestigious commercial and residential projects. Some of which, Sasol’s new Head Office in Sandton, Alexander Forbes, Sandton City and Standard Bank, Rosebank to name a few.

Steel Studio’s product categories consist of stainless steel balustrades, post and glass balustrades, frameless glass balustrades and custom staircases.
