Glass Fencing Designs

Glass Fencing can serve a variety of purposes and are available in a range of designs.

Framed Glass Fencing, Balustrades and Railings – this is where the glass fencing incorporates the use of aluminium or stainless steel posts as well as a horizontal top handrail and optional bottom rails. This is the most economical glass system as well as the safest and strongest due to the metal support structure.

This type of glass fence or balustrade can be produced in a variety including:

  • Fully framed – where the glass has a complete frame all the way around it and is glazed into the aluminium or stainless steel support structure
  • Partially framed – often the glass is only glazed into the side posts leaving an exposed edge of glass along the bottom and possibly along the top edge depending on whether it is glazed into the top handrail or not. All exposed edges of glass will generally be chamfered and polished
  • Cantilevered Glass Fencing and Balustrades – this is where the glass is connected to the floor using either spigots or continuous channel. For balcony balustrades and structural handrail is then fitted continuously on top of the glass panels.
