Types of Glass Balustrades
Balconette Offers the power of choice
Choose a Balcony Systems glass balustrade combination that best meets your needs in terms of style, cost and design.
FOUR TYPES OF BALCONY SYSTEMS GLASS BALUSTRADE
When the glass of a balustrade is not just used as an infill panel but as the actual structure of the balustrade it is often referred to as a structural glass balustrade or, as we do here, a frameless glass balustrade. It’s strength comes from a strong base that firmly clamps the glass panels, which are themselves thick and strong enough to cope with the pressures and loads imposed on them.

BALCONY SYSTEMS RAILINGS

BALCONY SYSTEMS GLASS BANNISTERS
The Balcony Systems glass balustrade is a unique balustrade system, using the combined strength of the precision-engineered handrail profiles, frame, base and the strength of the glass. It allows wider spans of glass than similar balustrade systems.
The Balcony Traditional Glass Balustrade described above can be used on stairs with a 70mm diameter handrail and our square Newel post.
BALCONY SYSTEMS GLASS THAT KEEPS ITSELF CLEAN
We have created a unique and very durable coating for glass known as BalcoNano®. It transforms its surface architecture from a hydrophilic (water-attracting) into a hydrophobic (water-repelling) surface. You can follow this link to find out more about the BalcoNano coating for our balustrades.
Treating the glass for your balustrade or bannister with Balcony Systems BalcoNano protective coating costs a little more but the benefits are:
- Protects the glass from dirt, grime and other contaminants
- Forms a hard water-repellent surface on the glass
- Reduces the required frequency of cleaning by between 50% and 90%
- Eco-friendly - eliminates need for harsh chemical cleaners
