Glass Balcony Balustrade – Ramsden Heath, Essex

Jonathan got in touch with me late September 2023 as he was looking to have a new glass balcony balustrade installed on top of his new extension that he had just built.

The Client Challenge and Project Breif:

Jonathan got in touch with me late September 2023 as he was looking to have a new glass balcony balustrade installed on top of his new extension that he had just built. 

Jonathan was looking for a stylish and modern addition that can enhance the aesthetics of a property while providing a safe and unobstructed view
Due to the way the roof had been built on the extension, the only safe and secure way to fix the glass balustrade post was to use a face fix style brackets. As with all balconies that we install, I always advise to use 13.5mm toughened laminated glass panels. Toughened laminated glass is a popular choice for such applications because it provides both strength and safety.

The Visage Glass & Steel Solution:

This type of glass balustrade is designed to enhance safety while maintaining a sleek and modern aesthetic. Glass balcony balustrades are often subject to building regulations and safety standards. Using toughened laminated glass is a common practice as it provides an additional layer of safety. In case of breakage, the interlayer holds the glass fragments together, reducing the risk of injury.
This type of glass is treated to increase its strength and safety and is supported by stainless steel posts with glass clamps. As the glass panels are overhanging the building. I also got small holes cut out of the glass so a small pin could be inserted through each panel to avoid the risk of a glass panel ever slipping out of the glass clamps.
The advantage of using glass for your balcony balustrade, contributes to a sleek and contemporary look, enhancing the overall aesthetics of a building or residence. They are versatile and can complement various architectural styles.
Proper installation is crucial for the safety and stability of glass balcony balustrades. At Visage Glass and steel we only use professional installers that ensure that the structure is securely fixed and complies with local building regulations
