Free Floating Glass Balustrade – Upminster

Another free floating glass balustrade completed for a customer in Upminster

The Client Challenge and Project Breif:

James Moon from Upminster, Essex got in contact back in May 2023 as he was looking for a glass balustrade to be supplied and installed for his patio area. As you can see from the pictures there is a big drop into the seating area. Because James has small children he was worried about them falling over the edge and seriously injuring themselves. After going through the options with James and his wife, they opted for the free floating glass balustrade system. As they were looking for more glass and less steelwork. As with all free floating glass balustrades I always advise to use 13.5mm toughened laminated glass which gives you more protection and strength due to not having a handrail. We also provided a glass gate where the steps are.

As with all patio glass balustrades systems installed and fixed on top of tiles, a special diamond drill bit has to be used carefully to drill through the tiles. The last thing we want to do is crack a tile in the installation process. Another part of the installation process when installing a glass balustrade is that all our work is bespoke and each post is individually made on site, so to make sure the balustrade lines through at the same height all the way along. Once all stainless steel posts are installed, we then measure up for the glass panels and install at a later date.

Client Testimonial

I would highly recommend Joe for your glass balustrade. Due to me and wife being anxious of the big drop in our patio area as we have young children, Joe made sure we were a priority in getting our glass balustrade completed as quickly as possible. We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of our glass balustrade and Joe’s attention to detail.
