As a commercial property owner, you want to ensure that your establishment has the aesthetic, practical and durable installations and features. Today, glass balustrades are being used in various commercial spaces as they have all these attributes and add to your property’s potential as well.
Stylish glass balustrades
An increasing number of builders, architects and interior designers are now using these features in the interior and exterior designs of their commercial projects; take a look at why this is so:
- Glass balustrades are extremely versatile in that they complement the look of various settings and create a very dramatic look in entrance halls, staircases, internal and external balconies and large hallway areas too.
- Modern interior design leans very heavily on open floor plan concepts; and glass lends itself very beautifully to these themes. It’s a great way to open up the interiors and it looks perfect in contemporary-design spaces.
- It adds beauty to the structure without obstructing the view in any way.
- Glass is often an integral design concept in new build structures. However, it also works stunningly well in heritage building refurbishing projects. It adds a very unique touch to the structure without taking away from the building’s original architecture.
While glass is an excellent material that offers a number of benefits, it is also quite a complex product. When it’s being used in glass balustrades, it’s crucial to get professional advice from expert surveyors and reliable operators in the field. The customised solutions we provide ensure that the glass balustrade specifications will match your function and aesthetic needs. The different aspects that have to be taken into consideration are:
- You can choose from framed, semi-framed or frameless glass balustrades for your commercial building.
- If you want balustrades for high traffic settings such as a shopping malls, commercial buildings or schools, we recommend that you opt for thicker glass balustrades.
- Some design concepts call for curved glass, handrail installations or staircase balustrades, and we cater to all these specific requirements too.
- We ensure that high grade, toughened and laminated glass is used in these installations and that the hardware is of the highest quality.
Types of glass balustrade fixing systems
In these the glass panels of the balustrade are fixed using custom-designed bolts. These are made to match the weight and size of the glass of your frameless balustrade.
The glass panels are set in customised, side-fixed or floor-mounted metal channels to create a frameless glass balustrade system.
Post & Rail Systems
Some customers want more robust glass balustrades and prefer getting semi-framed systems. We use SS balustrade posts that have glass panel infills.
The glass panels in these systems are firmly set in floor channels and are held in place with a hard resin. This provides a seamless finish and since the frame is concealed, it provides a very slick look to the installation.
In this system, mild steel plates are used to hold the glass panels. Metal or timber may be used in the concealed system installation. This is an entirely customised structure in which the mild steel plates are bolted directly to the staircase sides.
