Expert glass hardware for seamless glass balustrade projects
Glass balustrades are an increasingly popular architectural feature within building projects. Up and down the country, they are featuring more and more in new build, renovation and refurbishment projects where glass is used to enhance building interiors and exteriors.
Glazing contractors and sub-contractors are facing increasingly challenging project timelines. Although technology is greatly improving in the production of architectural glass hardware, especially with the likes of BIM and offsite production, this is firmly counter balanced with increasingly tight project deadlines and budgets, stricter building regulations, and growing client expectations.
This is where Balustrade Components UK’s strengths lie. Not only do they provide high quality architectural glass hardware which ensures glass balustrading projects look the part and are fit for the purpose intended. But the company’s technical team supports glazing contractors and sub-contractors through every step of the project.

With a large selection of imported glass fixings available in the glazing market, it is rare to find UK manufacturers who produce their own glass hardware. Balustrade Components UK are proud to support the Glass and Glazing industry with bespoke ranges of baluster posts, glass standoffs and more.
Manufactured in their Staffordshire based factory, precision engineering is core to the operation at Balustrade Components UK.

Paul Startin, Managing Director, comments, “We get glass contractors and sub-contractors getting in touch on a daily basis with an urgent requirement for their project. Quite often they’re on-site and either the design specification has changed by their client or they have been let down by their original supplier.
Our team here is fantastic and have a real ‘can-do’ attitude. If there is an urgent problem then we will do our very best to find an urgent solution – problem solving is key to our service offering.
