Frameless Glass Balustrade

Glass Balustrade in Newport

Recently, Origin Architectural supplied a customer based in Newport with a beautiful frameless glass balustrade.

The customer had recently converted their garage into a summer house, they have a large window with great views of their garden and neighbouring fields.  Outside of the window was a raised path with a drop of over a meter.  They wanted some sort of barrier, as they have young grandchildren, but also, they did not want to spoil the view, so I ran through the different options we offer.  We both agreed that the best option would be the frameless glass system, without a handrail for minimal interference.

The raised path was supported by a brick wall, the best fixing to fix a frameless channel to the wall is a steel threaded bar and resin anchor seal.  This is the best fixing because the more common expanding anchor bolts can cause the brick to break if over-tighten. 

Once the channel, Quality Fit by Origin, was set in position, the glass was fixed in place and lined up perfectly.  Luckily, the wall was nice and even, so this helps the glass line up.  Not everyone’s walls are so even, so Origin offers other channels that allow the glass to be adjusted, such as On Levels Flex fit.

The customer was extremely happy with the finished product and sent us the photos below.
