A residential balcony terrace in South Wales has been given an elegant and private surround with glass supplied by the UK’s leading toughened glass specialists, TuffX.

The project brief had a number of requirements to fulfil: strong, safe and secure glass that could withstand the worst of the weather, provide privacy whilst maximising light, be easily maintained and also give a contemporary finished aesthetic.

TuffX supplied six panels of 17.5mm toughened and laminated safety glass with dubbed corners for the frameless glass balustrade. All the panels were sandblasted to render the glass translucent, creating privacy while allowing light to transmit across the balcony and into the adjoining living space inside the house.

Ritec-coating gave the sandblasted glass a smooth and uniform finish, protecting it against unsightly marks from everything from the weather to fingerprints, making it easy to clean and ensuring it stays looking cleaner for longer. The resulting pristine glass and stylish frameless look gives the balustrade a modern, minimalist aesthetic to complement the home’s contemporary exterior.

“We manufacture toughened glass in-house on our state-of-the-art machinery to meet all types of briefs and all current industry standards,” said TuffX’s Managing Director Graham Price.

“Whatever your project – big or small, commercial or domestic – we have the solution, and our team are ready on hand to advise throughout the ordering and supply process.”
