What is the difference between a toughened balustrade and a laminated?

Balustrade is supplied to building regulations to meet the requirement for safety, in such cases where a frameless balustrade is required this will always be laminated glazing unless on a parapet wall or where there is no dangerous drop. A toughened glass balustrade will incorporate a handrail, this is placed on top in the event of a breakage so that the handrail then becomes the barrier to prevent a fall or accident. The difference between both always comes down to safety and the loading required for the balustrade to achieve.

What is a balustrade?

A balustrade is railing supported by a row of small columns.  You can find these on staircases and surrounding balconies or terraces.  The small columns are also known as balusters.

Is Your Glass Safe To Use On A Balcony?

We provide a range of glass to be used for different purposes.  Any glass used on balustrades needs to be laminated or toughened safety glass. Our clear toughened glass is perfect balustrades glass for a glass balcony. By using Marine Grade stainless steel balustrade posts, laminated, toughened glass, and the appropriate glass clamps you can be assured of the utmost safety.

What's the difference between frameless balustrades and framed balustrades?

The main difference is the way the balustrade is put together – the frameless balustrades appear to be just glass panels secured together seamlessly (ideal if you are wanting to keep an uninterrupted view!) whereas the balustrade with a frame has posts in between each panel of glass. The framed glass balustrade system uses a high quality, stainless steel balustrade posts and toughened laminated glazing attached using glass clamps. A glass clamp will ensure your glass is securely affixed to the steel posts, important if you are using the system for a glass balcony.

Can I design my balustrade system to fit any shape space?

Yes, we can use curved glass to fit rounded spaces, as well as regular glass panels.  You can choose frameless designs if you want to make your glass balustrade system as minimalistic as possible, or you can have sleek and stylish stainless steel combined with your glass panels for a futuristic look.
