Frameless Track System If you need barrier protection and still want to enjoy your outlook, this is perfect balustrade for the best view. All you will see is glass with no posts to obstruct the vista.
This system is popular with both architects and clients living in areas of natural beauty.
We offer many bespoke variations to help you create the style you want (Please see bespoke options below)
Our Standard Frameless System:
There are two methods for creating frameless glass balustrade, the first described is the most common.
Strong clear toughened safety glass panels are slotted into lightweight aluminium channel or ‘glass track’
These are held securely in place with a strip of rubber.
Usually the channel is fixed to the floor. If that is not a feasible option, alternative methods are available. (Subject to site suitability and structural fixing requirements)
The glass panels have polished edges and radiused or dubbed corners, for extra safety.
This system can be provided with or without a handrail. (Please see bespoke options below)
Side Fix Frameless Balustrade Using Glass Adaptors
The other method we use for frameless balustrade, uses glass adaptors, instead of aluminium track.
Glass panels are supplied with fixed holes drilled into the bottom. They are then secured with glass adaptors.
Circular Stainless-steel glass adaptors are made from high quality 316 stainless steel. Durable, with excellent resistance to corrosion and rust. These can be hidden with a facia plate or powder coated to a RAL colour of your choosing.
ALL OF OUR SYSTEMS CONFORM TO BS 6180: 2011 & ARE AVAILABLE AS BOTH SUPPLY & DELIVER ONLY OR WITH INSTALLATION
Requirements: For safety and suitability there must be a solid structure to fix the balustrade to
e.g. Concrete, Steel, Substantial Timbers. Our technical department will be glad to advise you on what should be in place.
If you are considering any type of balustrade, we highly recommend that you speak to us before making any alterations to the site (Such as decking or paving etc)
Bespoke options: Why not tailor our frameless glass balustrade system to your personal taste?
Aluminium channel: Can be powder coated to a RAL colour of your choice.
Hidden Aluminium Channel: The glass track can be buried, hiding it from view, which leaves only the glass visible.
As with all our products, this option depends on site suitability.
Handrail: Our standard handrail for the frameless system is circular and made from high quality 316 stainless steel tube. This slots easily on to the glass and is kept secure with a rubber strip.
316 stainless steel is chosen for its durability & excellent resistance to corrosion and rust. Ideal for outdoor use, even in windswept locations, exposed to the elements. The Satin finish we use hides fingerprints and marks very well, requiring minimal cleaning & maintenance.
You can opt to for yours to be powder coated to a RAL colour of your choice.
Also available crafted from timber, by an experienced joiner.
With our frameless system addition of a handrail is optional. However, depending on the location of your balustrade the exclusion of handrail can affect the type of glass we must use. This is for structural or safety purposes.
Glass Adaptors (If using Side-fix Method) These can be hidden with a facia plate or powder coated to a RAL colour of your choosing. (Fascia plate can also be powder coated to any RAL)
Edge Protection Strips If want extra protection for the glass and would prefer your balustrade without a handrail. These are metal strips, which have a minimal impact on the view while protecting the glass. Shaped to slot securely over the panel edge. These can also be powder coated to a RAL colour of your choice.
Glass: Toughened safety glass or laminate glass is available in a range of colours.
Glass can be shaped and sized to suit (Providing safety requirements for the balustrade are still met)
Privacy Glass: If your outlook is less secluded than preferred, glass panels can be frosted or obscured to create privacy. Often selected for one end of a terrace or balcony, to avoid neighbours seeing across.
Posts: As an alternative to our frameless system (Please see our section on Stainless Steel Post & Glass Balustrade for more details) stainless steel posts can be shaped circular, rectangular, or square.
Can be powder coated to a RAL colour of your choice.
For a more rustic appearance we can supply timber posts (please see our section on Timber Post Balustrade for more details
Decorative In-fill Panels: As an alternative to our frameless system (Please see Ornamental Steel Balustrade for more details)
A substitute to glass, your balustrade can be made with adorned metal panels between posts.
These come in a diverse selection of ornate laser-cut patterns. You can even create your own design.
Steel sheets are pre-treated and powder coated (RAL colour of your choice) to withstand the elements.
