Frameless Glass Balustrade
Solutions for Inside and Outside the home
Need a frameless glass balustrade for a Gold Coast renovation or build? Insular are guaranteed to have a solution for you. Frameless Glass Balustrades can be installed both inside and outside the home, achieving great continuity of design.
Internally, frameless glass can be used as a staircase balustrade or to maintain an open feel over internal balconies and voids within a multi-story home.
Externally, frameless glass balustrades provide a modern finishing touch that can be used as an architectural statement feature piece, or can blend in seamlessly into its surrounds, depending on the design.
What is a Frameless Glass Balustrade?
A frameless glass balustrade is a modern alternative to traditional timber, stainless steel or wire balustrades / railings. With frameless glass, there are no frames around the glass panels, hence the name “frameless”. Instead, the balustrade glass is held securely in place with sophisticated but unobtrusive stainless steel spigots (or mini posts) or stand offs (pin fixings). The main benefit of this minimalist design is that it allows you to enjoy an uninterrupted view of your landscape and home.
To comply with balustrade building standards, a custom made staineless steel handrail will be attached to any balustrade where there is a fall greater than 1m. Railings are installed along the top of the panels or offset against the side of the panels. This creates a balustrade that is compliant, functional and looks good too.
Also, unlike other companies, Insular ensures that all of our glass balustrade rails are welded together onsite (not glued), providing maximum strength and durability for added piece of mind. Rails are available in a range of styles, including round, rectangular or square.
