Glass Rail, our Glass Balustrade system, pairs perfectly with stainless steel, aluminium, brass, or PVC fitted handrail sleeves, although not required. Glass Rail offers a cantilevered glass balustrade, making it stand out on its own.

Glass Rail is specially designed with safety at the forefront: Toughened or laminated glass with multiple thicknesses are used depending on the situation to ensure that your glass balustrades will last and keep you safe. 

Glass balustrade systems administer spectacular results by making the most of the view around. No balusters are required for this system, giving a seamless, frameless look that many balustrade systems do not offer. Its clean lines, partnered with simple installation, make it the optimum choice for a multitude of applications.

Due to their durability once combined with our handrail systems such as ‘Illumine’ our LED insert handrail and ‘Stargard’ our ‘warm to the touch’ handrail, Glass Rail is the perfect solution for outdoors, providing a robust & practical glass balustrade option.

We believe the Glass Rail – glass balustrade system is best suited to quality developments. Shopping centres, prestige housing projects and balconies are some of the previous applications we have seen glass balustrades work well. In refurbishment projects it has brought interiors into the 21st Century.

Glass Rail is high quality and with our professional installation it’s not only quick but also easy to install no matter the weather. Balustrades are also a requirement for drops of over 600m: with toughened glass panels, and varying glass thicknesses it makes glass balustrades safe and a great option for keeping the beautiful views around you.

Glass balustrades also allow light to penetrate which gives the morning and evening sun all the access it needs when peaking over the horizon.

Handrail Options:

We have a variety of handrail options, from stainless steel, aluminium, PVC, wood, and brass. Depending on the application, location, and weather the balustrade is exposed to, it will influence the best handrail to be used. 

In cold outdoor climates, our Stargard handrail is perfect, as the insulated PVC hand railing provides a ‘warm to the touch’ feel, stopping the hesitation of use. 

Our Citadel range is typically used indoors, as the brass handrails provide a traditional and prestigious feel. 

Lastly, our Stronghold range is suitable for any professional environment indoors; the stainless steel handrails match with a wide variety of interiors and provide a clean and professional feel. Our regular stainless steel handrails can be either circular or oval and are attached to the glass by stainless steel channels.

Clamping Discs:

Glassrail stainless steel clamping discs are suitable for internal or external applications and can be used with 12mm, 15mm, 19mm or 25mm thick toughened glass. The discs are spaced to ensure even distribution of the design load.

Spacer discs are placed behind where appropriate to allow the glass to be positioned away from the edge of the stair allowing for easy cleaning, The lower edge of the glass can be sandblasted if required as a feature or to hide the edge of the stair.
