Terrace Windbreak

Glass Balustrade in Cornwall: The Stargazy Inn is a luxury restaurant with rooms in Port Isaac, Cornwall.

Like many Cornish restaurants, the Stargazy Inn enjoys spectacular sea views and benefits from a terrace where guests and diners can make the most of the stunning location. The down side to having a sea view terrace in Cornwall, is that the wind can make al fresco dining uncomfortable. Cornwall is renowned for its prevailing westerly winds, even in the summer! The Stargazy Inn wanted to create a windbreak for their terrace so the space could be opened up for diners, but they didn’t want the fantastic view to be compromised. They came to Pure Vista for their frameless glass balustrade installation in Cornwall.

The best windbreak solution when you have a view is glass balustrade.

Glass balustrade in Cornwall in particular, is a popular choice since we enjoy incredible views from most of our coastal hotels and restaurants. Glass, as a material, enables these views to be maximised.

The product chosen to fulfill the brief for Stargazy Inn, was Pure Vista POSIglaze; glass balustrade that can sustain force loads of up to 1.50kN, perfect for light commercial applications such as restaurant terrace windbreaks. To find out more about what building regulations require of your glass balustrade project, refer to our building regulations web page.

The photos below show just how effective the windbreak is. The height is ideal for people to sit beneath and be able to enjoy the view during dinner. Overall, we think installing a glass balustrade as a windbreak was the perfect solution. Keeping the beauty of the Inn and the landscape while fulfilling the brief from the customer.

POSIglaze is the ideal balustrade solutions for domestic locations. it works great as patio railings and wind breaks, bannisters for stairs and even as a glass handrail on decking.
