Glass balcony balustrades for London apartments

Glass balcony balustrades for London apartments

Glass balcony balustrades, manufactured and installed by Sapphire, are ensuring perfectly clear views for residents at Eltham Springs, a new shared ownership housing scheme in south east London. Sapphire’s Crystal frameless structural glazing system, with no vertical support posts, creates a sleek and stylish surround for balconies to 49 apartments built by Willmot Dixon for London & Quadrant Housing Association.

London-based Frank Reynolds Architects (FRA) designed the residential development. Glazed balcony balustrades were specified for the residential project for their visual appeal, to maintain simplicity, and to give an understated lightness to the modern, uncluttered facade.

The 40 tonnes of Crystal glass balustrades supplied by Sapphire for Eltham are installed in various panel configurations to suit small individual balconies and larger shared terrace structures. Fully compliant with relevant British Standards, Sapphire’s frameless glass solution features toughened laminate glass panels, which are supported by innovative base fix channel systems. The minimalist effect is completed by slim-line aluminium cappings with a powder-coated finish to match the window frames.

A combination of clear and etched glass was used for balustrades to balconies on Eltham’s south facing elevations for privacy and to support the façade configuration. Panels of 2.5m high obscured glass were also installed between balconies serving more than one apartment and to balconies overlooking neighbouring properties for privacy purposes.
