Glass types & custom glass service

What sort of glass will work for my glass balustrade?

It depends on the type of glass balustrade you choose and the look you wish to achieve for your building. Choose from:

  • Toughened or toughened laminated glass*
  • Clear float glass (standard glass with a slight green tint)
  • Low iron glass (extra clear glass)
  • Sandblasted or satinated glass to provide an opaque finish with full or part cover, your logo or bespoke design
  • Decorative patterning or decorative interlayer
  • Glass embellished with an applied manifestation

* The glass must comply with current building regulations but our technical advisors will discuss the required specification and glass thickness appropriate for your installation.
