Glass Balustrade FAQ’s
What is the difference between a toughened balustrade and a laminated?
Balustrade is supplied to building regulations to meet the requirement for safety, in such cases where a frameless balustrade is required this will always be laminated glazing unless on a parapet wall or where there is no dangerous drop. A toughened glass balustrade will incorporate a handrail, this is placed on top in the event of a breakage so that the handrail then becomes the barrier to prevent a fall or accident. The difference between both always comes down to safety and the loading required for the balustrade to achieve.

The main difference is the way the balustrade is put together – the frameless balustrades appear to be just glass panels secured together seamlessly (ideal if you are wanting to keep an uninterrupted view!) whereas the balustrade with a frame has posts in between each panel of glass. The framed glass balustrade system uses a high quality, stainless steel balustrade posts and toughened laminated glazing attached using glass clamps. A glass clamp will ensure your glass is securely affixed to the steel posts, important if you are using the system for a glass balcony.
