Frameless Glass Balustrade

Frameless Glass Balustrade project in Cambridge

In addition to supplying residential properties Origin Architectural work on projects with commercial properties and businesses. We recently worked on a frameless glass balustrade project in Cambridge. The balustrade system was for a pub in Needingworth, a small village a short drive from Cambridge.  

After having a large refurbishment, and getting prepared for the lifting of Covid restrictions, the customer wanted to finish off the decking area in style. Sitting on the River Ouse, the pub wanted uninterrupted views of the river and the boatyard, so our frameless channel system was a no-brainer!  

Due to the busy nature of the pub, we opted for thick 17.5mm glass. This also benefitted as they didn’t want a handrail and the drop was over 600mm, so it still passed building regulations which were paramount. To keep the glass align and to relieve some of the pressure, we used glass adapters in between panels. These glass adapters strengthen the rigidity of the glass, while also leaving the view alone.  

 A hotspot in the summer, and with hospitality opening again soon, Origin supplied the channel on a few days notice, with the glass taking just 2 weeks to follow. 

 Cheers to that!
