Frameless glass can be used in a variety of products, including doors, shower screens, pool fencing and balustrades. Frameless glass offers a number of benefits for any area, including a decorative effect, strength and long-lasting durability.
Frameless glass shower screens
Frameless glass shower screens consist of a strong safety glass. They can be singular or double doors. They can feature square or bevelled glass, depending on the screens available in your local store and your aesthetic preferences.
Frameless glass shower screens can consist of low-iron glass, opaque glass, coloured glass or residue-resistant glass. Low-iron glass produces greater clarity than traditional clear glass. Opaque glass features etched silhouettes, offering a more decorative design and a greater level of privacy. The glass can also be tinted or printed with an image on it. Additionally, residue-resistant glass means that mould and limescale can be prevented and that the glass can be more easily cleaned.
Frameless glass balustrades
Balustrades feature railings to support your movement. Frameless glass balustrades can be custom made for each project. The design of the glass balustrade has to receive certification before the balustrade can be constructed. A frameless glass balustrade consists of multiple layers of strengthened glass and an inner layer which bonds the glass together. If the glass panels are broken, the inner layer will keep the structure in place.
Frameless glass pool fencing
Frameless glass pool fencing acts as a barrier between different pool areas or a pool area and a garden. There are standards for the degree of thickness for the glass that must be adhered to.
Frameless glass pool windows and weirs
Frameless glass can also be used to create underwater windows for pool areas and glass barriers, or weirs. Weirs allow the water to flow over a clear barrier, creating a decorative effect. Frameless glass can be used to produce greater light in a pool area. The design of the window or weir must receive certification before work commences.
Frameless glass doors
Frameless glass is also used in sliding doors. Frameless glass doors are typically used in shops, bars and restaurants. Frameless glass doors can be used as internal and external doors. They can be made using clear glass, low iron glass, opaque glass or printed glass.
Frameless glass doors offer an unhindered view of the outside area. Additionally, frameless glass doors can be tested against weather effects, offering durability against conditions such as rain and wind. They can also possess insulating properties to keep the temperature in your home stable.
