Robust and aesthetically pleasing commercial balustrades

2 years ago 0 category Glass Balustrade Systems

There is no job too big for us and over the years we have worked on many commercial projects throughout the UK. Our in-house fully trained CAD technicians, surveyors, fitting team, and fabricators all have years of experience working with architects and project managers.

They know what is needed to complete a commercial project successfully and our surveyors will visit your project site and carry out your survey to gain accurate measurements. Our CAD team will then produce your thorough drawings, and our experienced installation team will fit the balustrades.

Why glass balustrades are perfect for commercial buildings:

In the commercial sector, strong and aesthetically pleasing balustrades are essential, which is why our stainless steel and glass balustrades are ideal and the most popular option whether it is for balconies, staircases, or other areas of the building.

Compliant with building regulations glass balustrades are extremely strong and safe. Building regulations specify that toughened or tempered glass and laminated glass are the only two types of glass that are suitable for constructing balustrades.

Toughened and laminated glass is highly sturdy, and difficult to break, even in the rare case of breaking it doesn’t shatter into small pieces. Glass balustrades are resistant to all weather conditions and resistant to wear and tear.

Glass is also a very popular material for commercial buildings because it doesn’t block natural light.  Research by Professor Alan Hedge at Cornell University in 2017 revealed that office workers reported an 84 per cent drop in symptoms of eyestrain, headaches and blurred vision symptoms, which can affect productivity.

Glass balustrades can maximise the feeling of space, improve the flow of a building and are aesthetically pleasing.

Glass is an increasingly popular material in modern commercial projects as it is durable, weatherproof and adds an elegant touch to any building, from gyms to malls, apartment blocks, offices and more.

Our glass balustrades can be bespoke, made-to-measure, with different finishes and can be customised with clear, frosted, or coloured glass.

If you are thinking of including glass balustrades in your commercial project and need more information, please contact us and we will go through all the options.
