Glass & Frameless Glass Balustrades
Toughened Glass Balustrades
Bespoke glass balustrades offer a light and elegant solution to any new or existing staircase. Canal can also fabricate glass balustrade systems for bridges, mezzanine floor edges, walkways, balconies as well as atriums.
We will work with you and/or your design team to develop your ideas as well as issue detailed layout drawings to help ensure that we have met your exact requirements. Everything we design is guaranteed to meet or exceed current building regulations which include a full independent structural analysis.
In addition, Canal Architectural can provide bespoke glass balustrades in any thickness to meet Building Control and structural requirements, be it single ply monolithic or laminated up to 4 ply. All in either ordinary float or clear low iron glass.
A variety of material finishes are available to enhance the look and appeal of your glass landing balustrade, including sandblasting, pattern inlays and water jet cutting.
Our glass balustrade design service includes:
- Initial site survey
- Specification advice
- Assistance with material choice, dimensions, fabrication, loading and compliance with British Standards (BS6399 and BS6180).
Glass balustrades can be used in both commercial and residential properties. They are an enhancing feature if used externally or internally. Bespoke glass balustrades are a popular choice for property owners due to the many benefits they have.
One of the main benefits of interior glass balustrades is the illusion of more space created by glass, this is mainly due to the fact that it does not block light, instead allowing it to travel throughout a property. Glass is also easy to keep clean alongside being strong and durable which allows for a long lifespan for these products – even for our external glass balustrades.
Frameless glass balustrade stairs add a sleek contemporary look to any interior or exterior environments. With no visible fixings to obscure your view, you can also increase the natural light flow throughout any property.
Canal manufactures each bespoke glass balustrade panel from structural laminated glass to allow us to keep the glass thickness down to a minimum. The fabrication team then ensures that all edges are fully polished, dubbed and arised to ensure safe use for users.
There is a wide range of finishes available for you to choose from to meet your custom design requirements. We can tint the glass to any colour of your choice, but we can also screen print a pattern inside the glass to add a decorative touch.
CANAL are able to fabricate interior and exterior frameless glass balustrades for staircases, balconies as well as walkways. We have experience in manufacturing both outdoor and indoor glass balustrades.
Why choose Canal Engineering?
“I met CANAL on three separate occasions at home renovation shows and spoke in length on each occasion. The professionalism and service received made the choice of working with CANAL somewhat easy. From the initial design stage to the completed balustrade and handrail, I was very impressed with the all round service and end product.”
