Glass balustrade construction, envisaged for architectural considerations, was utilised in Kashirskaya shopping center in Moscow, Russia. Modifications were required in the manufacturer's design, to be further verified by full scale tests, on the most used largest sized panels. 3-D finite element computer model of glass balustrades and connection members were formed and ultimate capacity and service limit calculations were made according to the related regulations. Results were compared with the experiments carried out on full-scale glass balustrades tested at METU Structural Mechanics Laboratory.
