Balustrades have been manufactured for 100’s of years from various construction materials and only recently have they transitioned to glass. As design-led high specification properties push the demand for more bespoke contemporary products, toughened safety glass has found its way into structural balustrading.
TuffX supplies glass balustrading to both large scale commercial projects and large/small scale domestic projects. As all products are manufactured in-house, complete control is exerted over the manufacturing process allowing TuffX to supply unrivalled quality and lead-times on glass balustrades.
Tuffx manufactures a varied range of glass thicknesses suitable for glass balustrades with the most common being 10mm, 12mm, 17.5mm & 21.5mm. All edges are polished as standard and we can manufacture any drilled holes, cut-outs or radius corners/shaping you require.
Toughened Safety Glass for balustrades undergoes a process that increases both its strength and performance, making it available for use in many modern commercial and building applications which would have been thought impossible many years ago.
With an increased integral strength of up to five times that of standard un-toughed glass, ensuring greater resistance to breakage. If however, a breakage does occur the glass will shatter in small, manageable, less harmful pieces, unlike standard non-toughed glass which has the tendency to break into large dangerous shards.

Toughened Laminated Glass
Through years of research and development, Tuff X have become one of the UK’s leading producers of Toughened Laminated Glass.
If you are looking for the ultimate choice in both safety and quality for balustrades, laminated glass offers even more increased strength and integrity than toughened glass. The manufacturing process for laminated glass takes safety one step further by bonding together two pieces of toughened glass with a transparent interlayer. In the event of accidental damage occurring the underlayer ensures that the shattered glass remains in place, allowing for easier and safer removal and replacement.
