Frameless Glass Balustrade

Seamless Design

Full height glazing within upper floors & bedrooms is becoming an increasingly popular feature in modern renovations which is why we offer the revolutionary design of a fully integrated frameless glass balustrade system that seamlessly integrates with our door and window products.

We can install tilt and turn windows and French doors into your upper floor rooms complete with a colour matched & virtually frameless Juliet balcony.

A Unique Concept

This unique built-in balustrade system is the perfect solution for upper-level gym’s, game rooms, atriums & most commonly bedrooms. Panoramic, full height windows can be utilised without the need of installing an external balcony or Juliet balcony, alleviating the need to use a third party to specify and install a safety balustrade for you.

Full height glazing above ground floor

The principles of our products are based around maximising natural light and connecting the inside of a property with the outside space. Our integrated Juliet balcony brings these benefits to the upper floors of a property, it’s not about getting you outdoors, it’s about bringing the sense of outdoors, in.

A Harmonious Connection

The Juliet balcony couples with our aluminium windows and doors, allowing you to design full height glazing into your upper floor rooms for maximum light, views, and an open airy feel. The balcony is installed at the same time as the window or door with minimal fuss providing a perfect design led solution all from one place. The safety barrier has been tested to BS6180 and surpasses current building regulations. It is the perfect complement to our Horizon windows & French doors as it allows upper floor, full height windows to be opened completely without any health and safety concerns. This sleek in-house system is a popular choice for architects and for people who have specific design requirements.

Key Features

The balcony system is made of an aluminium sub frame profile that connects to our door and window products.

M8 x 20 stainless steel screws secure the glass balustrade to the balcony sub frame and are locked into a steel insert that sits within the aluminium profile.

A seamless connection with your doors & windows with installation from one Company at the same time making your site safer, your project move along quicker plus more aesthetically pleasing aesthetic between your upper-level glazing and the required safety barrier.

Frameless Balustrade Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the maximum width of the glass balustrade?

The maximum width of the safety barrier (the glass balustrade) is 2400mm wide.

Can the balustrade be powder coated to an elite or essence finish?

Yes, we stock the balustrade profiles in a mill finish so they can be powder coated to any RAL colour plus our Elite & Essence finishes.

Can the balustrade be integrated with a sliding door?

The frameless balustrade is best suited to windows and doors that have a front to back depth of 70mm. Plus because the balustrade is fixed directly in front of the door product it means that the exterior glass of a sliding door or bifold door cannot be cleaned properly. For this reason, we only offer opening inward products like French doors & tilt-turn windows with our integrated Juliet balcony system.

Can a French door to be opened for ventilation if used in a bedroom?

If you are looking for a French door with ventilation, then we would recommend our Horizon tilt & turn windows because they offer more functionality than a traditional French door. Our Horizon tilt & turn windows can be applied to locations where they act as a French door or a single access door but with the ability to tilt the window inwards for ventilation, which is why they’re proving an increasingly popular solution particular in upper floor rooms such as bedrooms. We can offer full height windows that can be tilted inwards for ventilation or both sashes can be fully opened inwards creating the perfect solution to combine with our integrated balustrade system.
