Frameless Glass Balustrade

Glass Balustrade in Ipswich

Origin Architectural recently worked on Cesario/Post and rail Glass balustrade for a customer based in Ipswich.

The Origin Glass Balustrade Post & Rail System is one of our most popular. Our pre-fixing service allows you to purchase a preassembled railing solution manufactured to your precise specification. We offer drill and tapping, cutting and milling. Our in-house saw and drill line, allows us to offer posts cut and flow drilled on short lead times at highly competitive rates. The material can either be 304 or 316-grade stainless steel. 304-grade stainless steel is great for indoors but will discolour over time if used outdoors. 316-grade stainless is suited for outdoor, however, it does still need some maintenance every few months.

Another thing to consider is the height of your balustrade.  If indoors, the system can be 900mm tall, whereas outside it has to be 1100mm. (if more than 600mm from ground level) In this instance, our customer wanted a balustrade for the outside edge of his decking.  As it is external, he opted for a 316-grade steal, at 1100mm tall.

The customer in question wanted to fit a safe system that would not interfere with their beautiful view, and this system does exactly that.  They also opted for a handrail running down the stairs for support. (When using shaped panels to go downstairs, it is very important to be precise, using an angle finder for the corners or even sending a template)


Fixing the post to the floor is very easy.  Each base plate at the bottom of the posts has 4x fixings holes that simply screw into the floor.  Depending on the surface, judge the fixing type you require.  In this instance, the customer was fixing a timber deck.  For this, we supplied M8 timber screws. Fitting the handrail is just as easy, requiring a small pilot hole and a self-tapping screw. (m5-sized screw)
