Hey – The Invisible – Man!

A grey clad house with a glass balustrade

If you were a bit of an ageing hippy living in Pontefract, you would definitely be declaring ‘wow, hey man’ if you saw (or didn’t see) the near-invisible frameless glass balustrade supplied by TuffX to a local property.

The first floor of the gable-fronted house is set back slightly from the one below, leaving a full length but narrow roof terrace accessible from the upper storey. The customer brief was for a safe, secure yet completely unobtrusive balcony solution.

TuffX supplied 15 panels of 17.5mm toughened and laminated clear safety glass with dubbed corners for a totally frameless balustrade. 

From the outside looking onto the finished detached house, the completed balustrade is barely visible at all, leaving the property’s architectural features and symmetrical lines completely on show. Meanwhile, from inside, the residents can enjoy a similarly unimpaired view out.

The slimline, frameless balustrade also makes the most of the limited room available on the narrow terrace. Space, light, views and safety have all been maximised with this great looking, easy to maintain glass balustrade solution.
