Frameless Glass Balustrade with Glass Stiffeners

Origin Architectural recently completed the supply of  this stunning glass balustrade in Staffordshire. The channel system used here is POSIglaze.

This is a domestic installation. The customer needed a line load test of 0.74kN and was fixing to concrete. POSIglaze is fully tested to 0.74Kn using 17.5mm glass. The surface to which the channel was fitted was uneven, so the end customer subsequently required a channel system that was fully adjustable. POSIglaze was the perfect solution!

The balcony was designed in a “U” shape. Origin Architectural working with Pure Vista supplied the customer with two pre fabricated 90 degree corners to suit the plan. The profiles across the front and on each return were cut by Origin to the exact dimensions of the customer. It couldn’t have been easier to install!

The customer didn’t want to have a handrail and given that the balustrade was in an exposed location, Origin recommended that the customer have glass stiffeners sitting between each panel of glass. These are regularly used for areas in high wind. This made the balustrade even more structurally secure and aligning the panels even easier.

The customer was absolutely delighted with the end result which allowed her to enjoy the unrivalled views of the surrounding countryside!
