FRAMELESS GLASS BALUSTRADES

Tech Specs  |  Installation  |  Gallery  |  Projects  |  Reviews

The SG12 system comes in two options Semi-Frameless and Fully Frameless.

FULLY FRAMELESS GLASS BALUSTRADES

The Fully Frameless does not have a handrail on top and uses 21.5mm laminated and toughened glass. Installation of the fully frameless requires more time for glass alignment and positioning as there is no handrail on top to hold the glasses straight. The SG12 Fully Frameless system allows for 100% uninterrupted views without even a handrail line. There are no limitations of lengths or sizes and requires no posts or handrails at all.

STRUCTURAL GLASS BALUSTRADES - TYPES AND METHODS

Frameless Balustrade SectionWhen the glass of a balustrade is not just used as an infill panel but is also used as the actual structure of the balustrade, it is often referred to as a structural glass balustrade. It is also sometimes referred to as a frameless glass balustrade or a cantilevered glass balustrade.

The basic idea is simple and is based on two engineering principles; a strong base that can clamp thick and strong glass panels that can resist the bending moments and loads imposed on it.

From our customer feedback and our many years of experience in this field, we feel there are some important things to consider when making a choice of type of glass balustrade you wish to install. These are listed in this article below.

Frameless glass balustrades may provide a contemporary look which is ideal for some homes and people but for other it could be a step too far. There is a need for functionality in glass partitions and this may be slightly lost in the some of the modern balustrades. It is a tribute to the design and quality of the new balustrades that many people can mistake them for not being present but if it makes people feel uncomfortable, the addition of a barrier or rail can make a massive difference to the comfort levels of a person.
