Clear choice

TuffX recently provided glazing for a balcony and balustrades in a new, high-spec Scottish home.

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

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 10 panels of 12mm-thick clear glass, with a polished edge finish and radius corners. The seven panels on the balcony required 14mm drilled holes, while the three for the stairs had 26mm drilled holes.

“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,” TuffX’s managing director Graham Price said.
