Bespoke Glass Balustrades
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 is the illusion of more space glass balustrades create, this is mainly due to the fact they do not block light and allow it to travel throughout a property. Glass is also easy to keep clean alongside being strong and durable which allows for a long life-span for these products.
Frameless Glass Balustrades
Frameless glass balustrades add a sleek contemporary look to any interior or exterior environments. With no visible fixings enhances your view from all angles as well as increasing the natural light flow throughout any property.
Canal manufactures each 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.
