Modern construction relies heavily on the use of glass which lends a very elegant and sophisticated look to a property. Not only is it used to great success in residential structures, but in commercial ones as well. If you are considering getting new balustrades installed, glass is a material you should take a second look at.
Custom Designed Frameless Glass Balustrading
Today, frameless glass balustrades are being increasingly used in homes, apartment high prices and office buildings. These are made of structural glazing elements and are used to add an aesthetically appealing glass barrier in areas such as balconies, patios, raised decks, staircases as well as levelled terraces and more.
Since every property is different and will have a different layout, styling, and design, it becomes necessary to customise any new structure to complement the aesthetic of the place.
Perfect For Commercial And Residential Properties
We provide excellent frameless, semi-framed or fully-framed glass balustrades that are the perfect addition to multi-occupancy residential buildings that need barriers in the balcony areas. Aside from this, we also install frameless glass balustrades in various internal spaces in shopping malls and other commercial buildings.
Not only do these lend a very modern look to the space, but also make these indoor areas look more open and spacious. We offer comprehensive specification guidance and technical advice and work very closely with individual property owners, contractors, architects, and builders to design stunning glass balustrades.
Our range of top quality customised glass balustrade components and innovative glass railing systems help create structures that are resilient, appealing, functional and easy to maintain.
Design Aspects of Glass Balustrades
Structures made of combination materials such as steel and glass are installed in various building constructions. These have become symbolic of modernistic design and styling. Here are some facts about the design aspects of glass balustrades:
- As mentioned earlier, the large glass panels optimise the available light in the internal spaces of structures.
- We use toughened and laminated glass in our projects. This is an excellent material choice for frameless glass balustrades because it is extremely strong and durable. It has a strengthening interlayer inside the glass panes. This layer helps keep the glass structure intact should it be compromised or smashed. This is a very important aspect, especially where the feature doesn’t have any handrails.
- Stainless steel complements glass beautifully, which is why we use steel railings for our frameless glass balustrades. The focus is always on providing our clients value for money. Stainless steel has high structural integrity and is also heat and fire-resistant as well as impact and corrosion-resistant. It has excellent mechanical functionality and is very easy to clean and maintain, making it an ideal material for structures such as balustrades.
- We also make use of the best quality structural glass fixings such as standoff point fixings, fasteners, glass clamps etc. This ensures they integrate seamlessly and fit perfectly into your glass balustrade systems.
- All our balustrades are designed to Australian building standards, which means they are strong, durable and then provide the safety that they are built for.
Versatile Glass Balustrades
Glass balustrades are extremely versatile structures that can be used in various indoor and outdoor areas of a home or commercial building. We also install glass balustrades as pool fencing. These weather the elements very well, are easy to clean and provide the safety you require without compromising on the aesthetic appeal of your residential yard or poolscape on your commercial property.
