    Glass Balustrades FAQs

    Glass balustrades are heavy-duty toughened glass panels that form a barrier, often used on staircases and balconies in both residential and commercial properties. Their primary purpose is safety and balustrades are used to secure an area. Glass balustrades are a much more modern solution that allows a contemporary and sleek finish that not just looks good but allows light to pass through to brighten up both indoor and outdoor spaces.

    Glass balustrades pricing can vary depending on the style of frame (seamless, steel or timber) and fittings chosen, other factors such as glass thickness and style may also impact the costs. If you have an area in mind that you want pricing up, you can use our balustrade planner tool for an instant online estimation. Whilst glass balustrades aren’t as cheap as other more traditional options, such as our stainless steel or stainless steel with timber, the aesthetic is stunning and often worth the initial extra outlay. If you have an area in mind that you want pricing up, you can use our balustrade planner tool for an instant online estimation.

    Some glass balustrades are structural whilst others are used purely for aesthetics or wind breaks. There are many regulations that balustrades must conform to, including a minimum height and width loadings to ensure safety. Whether or not your balustrades will need to be structural will depend on your chosen design and where you’re planning to install your glass balustrade.

    There are many steps to consider when installing a glass balustrade, and we recommend hiring an expert team such as ours to ensure all safety regulations are carefully adhered to. However, if you have the relevant experience and skills to do it yourself, you should consider the following steps:
    ● Measure the area several times and ensure you have the correct sizes
    ● Ensure you have all the necessary tools and safety equipment.
    ● Assistance – a spare pair of hands go a long way when installing glass balustrades as
    you will need someone to hold materials in place whilst you attach your structural glass
    to the necessary fixings.
    ● Check all regulations, ensuring you comply to the minimum and maximum height and
    gap rules.
