Frameless Glass Balustrade

Post and Rail Glass Balustrade in Llanelli, Wales

This stunning post and rail glass ‘Viola’ system was supplied by Origin Architectural to a customer in the coastal town of Llanelli, in South Wales.

When the customer approached us with their ideas we were delighted to help bring their plans to life, we worked with them to design a bespoke glass balustrade perfect for their decking.

According to British government regulations, a balustrade must have a handrail if the fall is greater than 600mm for safety reasons. As you can see from the photographs decking is slightly raised but the drop is below 600mm allowing the customer to choose not to have a handrail so as not to interrupt the gorgeous backdrop of the Welsh countryside. With two outside entry points to the decking area from the steps, we recommended fitting our bespoke gates. With posts and glass made to measure, our gates are versatile and blend in seamlessly with the rest of the balustrade.  


Materials used to build the Glass Balustrade

In order to create this incredible design, the customer purchased toughed glass 10mm thick (this is the minimum thickness required in residential properties stated by government regulations), Viola and end cap posts and bespoke gate posts all of which are measured and designed to the customer’s specifications and budget.

When designing and measuring the materials the customer first drew a plan, marking the distance the balustrade would cover and the number of posts required. Once the posts are planned the measurements of the glass can then be calculated to the exact requirements. For more information on measuring a glass balustrade visit our blog post entitled ‘How is a glass balustrade measured?’.

The installation was completed and fitted by our friends in Llanelli, Atcost Windows who did an incredible job.
