Updating Your Home with Architectural Glass
When did architectural glass become popular?
Glass has been a suitable material for building since 1851 when it was popularized by Joseph Paxton’s Crystal Palace. Since then, the manufacturing techniques for this material have continued to evolve and grow. Now we use more and more glazed products everyday for building projects in the UK than ever before.
What can architectural glass do for me?
Updating your home with architectural glazing a great way to modernise your surroundings. With the right type, it can add a wonderful element of class for aesthetic purposes. It can also provide great strength when used for a more structural reason.
Below is a great installation of our Frameless Balustrade where there is a glazed floor panel installed within the decking. This is just one option! There are so many different things customers can do with glass panels. Whether within the home or a more commercial environment, this material can really make your project stand out from the rest.
When thinking about glazing in the home it immediately draws attention to windows, right? However, you can use it for many other things. Examples would be skylights, elevated walkways, canopies, staircases, doors and wall partitions. Wall partitions are particularly great if you want to visibly ‘open up’ a home or office.
