As well as the brilliant aesthetic qualities of glass balustrades, their functionality and durability mean they are a desirable option for modern architectural trends.  They provide an incredibly safe glass barrier around the balcony which will be designed to withstand various load bearings for optimum safety.

10mm and 12mm toughened or laminated glass panels are incorporated into the designs. Together with high-quality balustrade fixings e.g. glass clamps, they are wonderfully suitable to protect people in balcony areas.  Another benefit is that they also provide protection against the elements for buildings, such as from the wind and rain.
