    Default Minimum code for deck handrail balustrade

    Can anyone point me in the direction of the minimum code for deck handrails and balustrades. I need to know the design and any minimum fixings etc. This is an upper story deck and I think what has been built is unsafe. I can't find the actual code anywhere online., assuming there is one?

    Someone told me the other day that you can't have free standing glass balustrades any more?

    They have to all be in a frame?

    I built a 3m high deck about 5 years ago, the handrail had to be 1.2m high.
