Enhancing light and space

Toughened glass specialist, TuffX, has supplied glazing for a balcony and balustrades in a new, high-spec Scottish home.

The dwelling, set in rural Scotland, has a clear glass balcony to the rear of the property, giving uninterrupted views over the countryside while being tough enough to stand up to the extremes of the Scottish weather. Inside, the minimalist, white and contemporary design is complemented with bespoke clear glass balustrades designed to enhance the overall feeling of light and space.

TuffX supplies glass balustrading to both smaller domestic projects and large-scale commercial builds, manufactured in a range of glass thicknesses with drilled holes, cut-outs or shaping as required. In this case, the specification was for ten panels of 12mm thick clear glass, with a polished edge finish and radius corners for a clean, contemporary appearance. The seven panels on the balcony required 14mm drilled holes, while the three for the stairs had 26mm drilled holes.

As with all TuffX products, the balustrades were manufactured in-house. “This is another great example of a successful project benefitting from our high-quality products and our experience as a leading safety glass manufacturer for over 25 years,” said TuffX’s managing director, Graham Price.

“It’s this experience, coupled with consistent investment in our factory and staff, that allows TuffX to remain flexible and consistently able to fulfil orders on a prompt five to six day lead time, with an express service also available.”
