Glass Linkways

A structural glass linkway can provide the best possible link between two buildings and is particularly appropriate when linking  an old building to a new extension, providing an indirect interface between buildings of different ages or built in different styles.  Some heritage organisations stipulate a glass linkway to provide a visual divide when adding an extension to a listed building.

Glass linkways are suitable for use in churches, heritage or older buildings

  • A glass linkway will allow for movement between two buildings of very different age and structure
  • Minimal footings are required - the glass linkway can be channel set and fully sealed with silicone
  • Single glazing will provide a fully weather resistant glass installation
  • Double glazing will allow the glass linkway to become an integral part of the structure of the building, fully compliant with heat loss requirements
  • Flashing will ensure there is no water penetration
  • There are no height or size restrictions, our technical team will advise on the structural requirements to ensure the finished glass structure is wholly compliant
  • Our glass linkways can be produced without visible fixings
  • Structural glass fins or structural glass beams can be incorporated for integrity and to give a robust yet minimal result
  • Glass linkways can be used internally as well as externally and can be designed as bridges, incorporating a glass floor if required
