Welcome to the future of architectural elegance and safety – the Curved Glass Balustrade. In a world where design meets functionality, this stunning innovation has taken the construction and interior design industries by storm. Whether you’re crafting a modern masterpiece or renovating a classic space, the Curved Glass Balustrade is the perfect marriage of form and function, providing you with an unparalleled blend of aesthetics and security.
The short answer is yes it can! Often our customers will come to us and ask us to shape their balustrade to match the curve of their decking, patio, or balcony.
A cost-efficient solution is to stagger the balustrade into a series of small hexagon-like shapes. A number of our products can be used. Stainless steel posts, frameless channel, or spigots. Neither the glass or the fixings will themselves be curved but the hexagon shapes when put together form a curved shape.
The cheapest solution is to use stainless steel posts. With our in-house processing, we can fabricate the posts so that the glass leaves the post at an angle that reflects the curve. It is not always easy to drill the posts at the correct angle to reflect your curve. As an alternative to us fabricating the posts for you, we can supply the clamps and fixings to allow you to drill the holes in the post onsite. This a very straightforward process which we can advise you or your builder on.
The most expensive solution is to bend the frameless channel and to fit curved glass within the curved frame. We will usually only supply this solution to commercial applications such as shopping centres or high-end houses.
We can bend the channel to any radius. The bending process itself damages the finish of the channel. If the channel is visible, we would always suggest that it is powder-coated after the bending process. We can supply clamp kits that are specifically designed to secure the glass within the channel.
The glass itself can be curved to any radius. We will work with you to ensure that it fits within the curved channel.
Our customers will often ask for curved handrail to be secured onto the glass. We can curve the handrail to match the radius of the channel. This is more straightforward than bending the channel itself.
It depends on the solution. Curved balustrade can be very expensive but we can advise you on other solutions that will not be much more than a conventional straight balustrade.
Curved glass is entirely safe. What will govern the safety are factors such as the application of the balustrade, the thickness of glass used and the how you secure your glass. Our technical team can advise you on how to ensure that your curved glass balustrade passes Building Regulations.
We can supply all of the fixings that you need for a cured glass staircase. This includes bending the handrail to most radiuses.
