Glass Balustrades

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.

They are a unique and aesthetic way of providing safety to your home and garden. There are many different options available for glass balustrades to suit you and your needs. 

Glass balustrades do not block out any light like other materials (like wood or metal) as balustrades are completely transparent, the natural light that they bring in looks more visually appealing than other options available. Also, they create an illusion of more space, which will benefit you if you are working with a smaller space. 

Furthermore, glass balustrades are easy to maintain as glass does not require much attention. There are options available for non-maintenance glass balustrades too. 

Essentially, balustrades act as a barrier and are an alternative to fencing or walls. They can be considered a safety feature, especially when it comes to balconies. The glass used for glass balustrades is toughened and thick and is nicknamed ‘safety glass’ 

Glass balustrades come in different types. One type is a glass balustrade that is reliant on posts, the balustrades are supported by posts being placed at certain points and the posts are made out of different materials depending on preference. The glass is attached to the post with clamps, this holds the glass into place and refrains it from falling. 

Another type of glass balustrade is reliant on the strength of structural glass. Usually, this type of balustrade is clamped at the bottom of the structure in order to keep it in place, it must have a thick instalment of glass (at least toughened 15mm) fitted. 

Frameless glass balustrades are another type that you may be interested in. This type of balustrade does not need a handrail attached to it however you can opt for a rail to be placed around the glass. It is a unique yet visually pleasing design using double sheet glass. The glass is attached securely to the ground to create a frameless effect. 

Other options you have when choosing what glass balustrade to get fitted include curved glass, maintenance-free, whether or not you want handrails and many more to suit your style and needs.  

Glass balustrades are easy to install and you will see an improvement to your home or garden in no time. Glass balustrades will instantly give your home or garden the modern makeover it needs!
