All About Our Glass Button Balustrade
The Glass Button balustrade is unique among our other glass system in that it is side fixed only. Lets also not forget it has the least intrusive looking fixtures (glass button clamps) which allows for a seamless view. A handrail makes this ultra modern, contemporary look all the more comfortable. For those who like to lean we have the Slotted Stainless Steel Top Rail or our bespoke offset handrail. Your customization options don’t stop there! Your glass panels come in a variety of thicknesses and colours. Toughened Safety Glass or Toughened Laminated Glass are also available options. This system can be fitted to Metal, Concrete, Wood and Brick fixing surfaces that have an adequate blocking (depth) of 50mm or more.
Domestic & Commercial usage
This system has been a popular choice for our commercial and trade customers due to it’s sleek and modern look, including premises such as showrooms, corporate offices and retail units. It has also lent itself well to modern domestic properties, giving homeowners that ‘Grand Designs’ look.
Stainless Steel Components
The parts used in this balustrade system are glass (Toughened or Toughened Laminated) and grade 316 Stainless Steel suitable for external applications. If you have opted for the Offset Handrail or the Slotted Top Rail it’s good to know these are also Stainless Steel. The finishes available for all of these components include the Satin and Mirror polishes. To find out more about these finishes read our post on the difference here > The Difference Between Satin & Mirror.
Care & Maintenance
There is sometimes a bit of confusion regarding Stainless Steel, some people think that stainless steel’s corrosion resistant surface somehow repels dirt and other contaminants. Like any other surface, it will require some maintenance, your Stainless Steel parts we recommend cleaning twice a year. Washing it with mild soap or detergent and warm water before finishing it off with a clear water rinse.
