Improve your home with an Epsom Balustrade that can modernise your home with a stylish new look.

Here at Ideal Glass we supply both residential and commercial glass balustrades in Epsom and the surrounding areas. We can add a whole new look to your home with our custom-made balustrades, designed to offer a safe and stylish addition to your stairs.

What is a glass balustrade?

Glass balustrades offers a safe and secure alternative to more traditional wooden or metal spindles. In both commercial and domestic settings, they enable a simple staircase to be turned into a stunning feature. They allow light to flow freely into your home and can help to create the illusion of space.

Our glass balustrades are made of the highest quality safety glass, designed to withstand day to day wear and tear. They are also easy to clean and maintain.

Glass balustrades can be used for both interior and exterior stairs and balconies. There are a variety of framed or frameless options to choose from depending on your own individual requirements.

How Safe Are Glass Balustrades?

Glass balustrades are subject to strict regulations to ensure that they offer a safe and effective barrier. Most glass systems that utilise handrails use single toughened glass sheets, including structural glass system. Usually 10mm on posted systems or 15mm on structural systems.

Whatever type of glass balustrade you chose to have fitted, they must meet with certain codes and regulations and should be inspected upon completion. Building control regulations must be considered when installing this product and here at Ideal Glass we are experts in ensuring that your glass balustrades meets all regulations required.

If you are looking to install glass balustrades without a handrail, you must consider the thickness of the glass as well as the type and thickness of the interlayer. We use glass that is safe and strong and reinforces the glass construction giving it extra rigidity for use in barriers or balconies.

How High Should My Glass Balustrade Be?

Regulations state that glass balustrades must meet the height requirement of 0.9m from the “datum” (a reference to the point which you stand on) all the way to the top of the handrail. For external balustrades or balconies, you will need to meet a higher size of 1.1m from datum.

What Type of Glass Can Be Used?

Your glass balustrades must be made from specifically designed glass that will act as an effective barrier. Your glass balustrades must be rigid, sturdy and able to withstand pressure without bending or breaking.

Commercial and Residential Glass Balustrades

Choosing glass balustrades for commercial buildings offers a stylish, cost effective and low maintenance alternative to traditional wooden or steel varieties.

Glass balustrades can also add a unique contemporary look and feel to your residential interiors. As well as looking fantastic, they are also extremely safe, easy to clean and offer a superior alternative to wood or metal balustrades.
