Structural Glass Solutions

Meeting the challenge of a ‘non standard’ structural glass design is something we pride ourselves on at Ion Glass.   We love working on bespoke glass installations that push the boundaries of what can be achieved in structural glass, ensuring the result looks amazing whilst meeting all technical and structural requirements.

Our structural glass installations include contemporary installations in modern commercial, residential and leisure environments as well as unusual glass structures in heritage buildings and churches, where the functional nature and timeless beauty of structural glass has minimal visual or physical impact on the original architecture
