The Glass Railing Specialists
DOMESTIC EXTERNAL BALCONY
One of the most common uses of Pure Vista balustrade systems is for domestic external balcony projects, much like this installation example in Wales.
The homeowner approached us looking for a completely frameless balustrade system. Their balcony benefits from stunning rural views so therefore, they didn’t want to obscure them with a post and rail system. The balustrade needed to achieve a minimum of 0.74kN, because this is required for an external safety feature in a single family domestic dwelling.
This is because POSIglaze exceeds the required force loading for the project and it’s the most adjustable Pure Vista balustrade system to date.
The adjustable nature of POSIglaze means that the heat-strengthened glass panels can be individually adjusted. Subsequently, the glass can then be aligned to create a seamless finish along a straight balcony profile. This is a major benefit because the glass is rarely completely straight post-processing. On a modern building like this one, maintaining a clean straight top edge on the balustrade is of high importance. Good aesthetics are always a priority! Hence, the installer was able to create the best finish possible using the adjustable features.
The installation itself was taken care of by Glacier UK who are specialist architectural glass installers based in Wales.
The photos below show the glass beautifully aligned and we can see the view through the glass. The balcony is now safe but it also allows the customer to see their view, which suits them perfectly.
