Greenwich Wharf selects Sapphire's balcony balustrades

Beautiful glass and aluminium balcony balustrades, manufactured and installed by Sapphire Balustrades, are maximising views over the River Thames from apartments in the capital’s new Greenwich Wharf development.

The balustrades, custom-designed using Sapphire’s Aluma aluminium section balusters (upright posts) with glass infill panels, are installed to balconies in a range of mixed tenure properties, from affordable apartments to luxury penthouses at the top of the seven-storey blocks.

Sapphire’s semi-frameless Aluma system provided the ideal solution for the project’s residential balcony balustrades, integrating the style of a structural glass balustrade with the superior corrosion resistance of high-grade aluminium extrusions.

The balustrades’ Aluma handrails and baluster uprights have a smart Grey polyester powder coated matt finish and are fixed with resin anchors into concrete integrated balconies.

The use of aluminium provides a balance between a cost effective solution and ensuring ultimate rust protection. This was a particular consideration for the project given the development’s urban location alongside the river. Infill panels were manufactured by Sapphire from 10mm clear toughened glass with polished edges. As part of a complete balustrade package, Sapphire also supplied glazed privacy screens between individual apartment balconies. These are manufactured from toughened glass panels which have been sandblasted to one face and then coated with a Ritec protective coating for low maintenance.
