When it comes to the frameless glass balustrades, glass is not just an infill panel anymore, but is also used as the actual structure of the balustrade. Frameless Glass Balustrades are often referred to as Structural Glass or Cantilevered Glass Balustrades.
Balcony Systems produce two types of frameless glass balustrades (Structural Glass balustrade – SG10) : Semi Frameless and Fully Frameless.
Fully Frameless Glass Balustrades
The fully frameless glass balustrade uses 21.5mm toughened and laminated glass and does not have a handrail on top.
Since there is no handrail on top of the fully frameless glass balustrade to hold the glasses straight during glass panels positioning and alignment, the installation requires more time.
Semi Frameless Glass Balustrades
The handrail can be in two options: designed elliptical shape or a small rectangular handrail.
There are no limitation of lengths or sizes and no posts are requiered for the Semi Frameless glass balustrades. They allow for uninterrupted views and upgrade any balcony or terrace.
