Glass railings are a very clean choice, with little to no details, providing great sturdiness and corrosion resistance. They are characterized by a stylish contemporary look, creating a feeling of spaciousness. They are suitable for staircases, balconies and porches with a view, as well as for creative design purposes for both the interior and the exterior of your home.
The upper mounting is either visible or hidden and is achieved by the use of aluminum consoles anchored with chemical anchors to the floor.
It allows an optimal space use for narrow staircases and balconies while providing sturdiness and reliability.
We provide a 10-year warranty for our railings – a period in which we guarantee peace and security.
The removal of damage and defects are carried out as soon as possible both during the warranty and after warranty periods.
Glass railings are made of edged laminated glass, with a thickness of 16 mm and more, attached to the concrete structure of the building with consoles for upper or side mounting. Glass railings can have different types of handrails made of aluminum or wood profiles, various in cut and color. Attachment consoles may be visible with an aluminum lid or hidden in the floor for greater simplicity of vision. They are mounted by chemical anchors or bolted to steel stairs or railings.
Tempered glass pane is aimed to provide a greater safety, sturdiness and security. During the process of manufacturing, the glass, pre-treated and cut to size, is subjected to high temperature heating and then to a rapid cooling. Once the annealing is done, the glass can no longer be cut, edged, drilled or undergo any other treatment apart from matting and lamination. To make this glass, it is first cut and treated, then it is placed in the annealing furnace. In the furnace the glass is heated up to 700ºC, then it is moved to the cooling section, via computer control, in which it is cooled rapidly by high-pressure air. This rapid cooling causes high compression and stress in the glass as a result its nucleus remains under pressure. Although the physical characteristics remain unchanged, the additional tensions created within the glass, increases its thermal and mechanical strength.
Glass can be laminated – Triplex. Laminated glass is also safe glass. Unlike tempered glass (Sekurit) the Triplex has other advantages and properties. Triplex glass is made of two layers of clear glass that are glued (laminated) with a stable colorless PVB layer between the glass panels. If Triplex glass breaks in a road accident, from an impact with a solid object in motion, or in an attempted burglary or in other instances, the Triplex does not break into sharp pieces, but into individual fragments that remain glued to the film, thus it cannot injure people located near the broken glass. Even when broken and cracked the triplex glass does not fall apart and remains like a barrier against other influences, which is a great advantage.
Glass for railings can be tinted in different colors. The technology of production of tinted glass is similar to that of the colorless float since in the beginning of its manufacturing process metal oxides are added to the main raw materials, that allow the corresponding color variations – green, blue, gray, bronze. In addition to the benefits provided by their distinctive aesthetics, tinted float glass is primarily designed to reduce solar heat, UV exposure and reflections inside the building.
Tinted float glass achieves its features by absorbing solar energy, thus sometimes it is referred to as heat absorbing glass. This heat absorbing quality means that the glass is under thermal pressure, thus some thicker or darker products may need to be tempered in order to avoid breakage by thermal stress.
Tinted glass can be treated, tempered, laminated and bent. They are used for solar control, since they absorb more heat than the transparent glass and emit most of the absorbed heat outside by means of natural convection.
