Staying safe, looking great

An elegant building requires an equally elegant safety glass solution, which is what TuffX recently supplied to a residential complex in Scotland.

The client required 15 Juliet balconies to provide both unobstructed views and unrivalled safety from multiple storeys of windows. TuffX supplied 17.5mm toughened clear glass in varying sizes, with an aligned finish and polished edge, to fulfil the brief.

The unobtrusive balconies provide great views and a ‘barely-there’ high-end addition to the outside of the building. The finished balconies complement the stonework facade in a minimalist, modern manner, without imposing on the building’s original beauty.

The glass provides high-fall protection for the large windows, which can be opened up completely to bring the outside in on good days. When the weather turns, the view from the closed windows is equally unimpeded.

“This is just the type of project TuffX is proud to excel at,” TuffX’s managing director Graham Price said.
