Here we installed over 50 linear meters of glass balustrades using a base shoe channel system and square stainless steel handrail. The grounds consisted of slate tiles, timber decking and spanned across flat surfaces as well as corners and stairs. Using the bottom channel system allowed maximum views to be maintained, making the most of the glorious surrounds. The handrail is a stylish, practical addition whilst also adding stability. This is available in square or circular finishes.

We transformed a residential property by implementing glass balustrades around the external terrace. Here we used our base shoe bottom channel system which enables us to have a ‘frameless’ finish as there is no need to use posts between the glass. A stainless steel caprail was fitted to the top of the glass to create a stylish finish, whilst being practical and adding stability to the structure itself.

We fitted over 200m2 of external glass balustrades in a base shoe channel design and 304 grade stainless steel handrail within the entire development in Beaconsfield. The Steadings required a number of fixing systems to be implemented within the same property, using both point fixings and base shoe channel to create the most optimum finish possible.

The lodge had a heavily decked area surrounding the entire property and the use of the glass balustrades really emphasized this feature. This also prevented any obstruction to the landscape, meaning this space can be fully utilised as a fully functioning outdoor space.

Hallmark Glass & Glazing was awarded the contract to survey, supply & replace 42no. shaped, damaged glass balustrades at the LUC, EC1. Each panel consisted of 15mm toughened glass and had 8no. countersunk bolt fixings. These panels weighed approx. 130kg each and hadto be fitted at height, out of hours. Each individual panel had to have a template made to produce the glass from and was turned around within 2 weeks. Fitting took 7 men including an abseiler and cradle operative, 2 weeks to complete.
