Glass is increasingly becoming popular for balustrades as it offers some wind resistant with the least obstruction to view. 12mm Clear Bright Polished Toughened Safety Glass is used for this application although should the client request, tinted options are available. Toughened glass offers the highest resistance to impact, where if broken, it shatters into small pieces of blunt granules which are relatively safe, making it the best and safest option for frameless balustrades.
Recessed balustrades which is mounted into a channel which is cast into the concrete, allows for glass to be secured with no fittings showing. This is then finished off with the normal flooring of choice for a professional, elegant look. We are able to use this method for both straight and angled applications for stairs.
Our Side mounted balustrades are mounted to the side by means of 316 Marine grade stainless steel studs. This application is commonly used for angled balustrades up staircases.
Our surface mounted balustrades allows the client to install balustrades on a finished floor product. The glass is secured by stainless steel glass clamps that are anchored into the floor surface, the glass is then clamped into the fittings.
All our frameless balustrades have the option of fitting handrails either through the glass on the side or fitted over the top of the glass.
Only high quality products and finishes are used with all our balustrades.
