Supporting glass fabricators and installers with their residential projects
Designing, supplying and installing glass balustrade products for residential installations is a challenging service. Customers demand the highest quality products for their homes, a quick turnaround and a seamless on-site service.
Not only do we have a comprehensive range of bespoke high quality glass hardware, but we have the technical expertise to support any installer in their current project.
Residential glass installations
As a UK-based glass hardware manufacturer, Balustrade Components UK is committed to serving both trade and end users in their glass balustrade or juliet balcony project.
Because of our significant experience with dealing direct to home owners, we fully understand their requirements and objectives when it comes to working with trade, such as glass installers and fabricators.
Quality products, quick turnaround, technical competence and reliability are crucial factors when consumers are looking to source their glass balustrade supplier.
Paul Startin, Managing Director of Balustrade Components UK, comments, “We have noticed a strengthening demand for bespoke glass balustrade products going into residential installs.
Our team here speaks to installers and fabricators on a daily basis and we offer down-to-earth and practical technical guidance.
We are a family owned and run business, and a strong work ethic underpins everything we do. Problem-solving is core to our operation here and often we are contacted by a trade professional who is on-site installing a glass balustrade or juliet balcony.
Unexpected events can sometimes mean there is an urgent requirement for particular components, for example glass clamps, baluster posts or stainless steel handrails.
We are expertly set up for this as our manufacturing facility operates 24 hours a day, six days a week for the more bespoke products. Or for the more standard product requirements, our factory is well stocked with off-the-shelf items available with fast despatch.”
High quality glass fixings for glass installers
In recent years (largely due to the economic climate) many home owners have favoured to improve and enhance their current home rather than to move properties. This coupled with the growing popularity of glass within construction, has meant there has been an upturn in glass hardware demand.
Glass balustrades and glass juliet balconies are a popular feature in modern residential projects. The ‘all-glass’ look creates sleek lines and unobtrusive architectural features within homes that not only look stunning but also carry huge practical and function benefits.
The benefits of glass balustrade products for fabricators
Installing either a frameless glass balustrade or post system can be performed relatively swiftly compared to railing structures made out of wood, metal or stone.
Frameless designs mean installers simply fix the glass panels into the base shoe or channel using various fixing methods available (depending on the system). Whereas post systems involve fixing glass panels between posts using clamps or standoffs.
Balustrade Components UK are pleased to offer a wide range of glass balustrade options for installers to offer their clients. We have a range of glass balustrade systems to choose from as well as a multitude of individual components, to assemble and design into complete installations.
Another benefit of glass balustrading for installers is they offer a safe and secure architectural feature which is perfect for residential properties. The toughened glass panels used have a high impact and heat resistance meaning they are incredibly durable.
This means the panels don’t break easily, but if they do they will break into tiny particles rather than large shards of potentially dangerous glass.
When glass installers and fabricators integrate our range of stainless steel glass hardware into their projects, they are reassured that their installations will benefit from high quality fixtures.
Such glass hardware will ensure their balustrade or balcony project complies and exceeds UK Building Regulations and will reduce the need for any costly remedial work to be needed later down the line.
