For a simple and striking solution we can use circular stainless steel button fixings which clamp the glass panels to the wall or staircase stringer giving a minimalist design with or without a handrail.
For balustrades and staircases the glass panels are clamped along the base with twin fixing points and small gaps in between each panel. The thickness of the glass can range from 12mm to 21.5mm depending on the application and size of panel. This solution is ideal for smaller balustrades, Minstrel galleries and for curved and winder staircases where a channel system cannot be used. The stainless steel buttons add an architectural look to the design showing off the fixings as much as the glass itself. The use of low iron glass with no colour to the flat surface and very little colour to the outer edge adds to the invisibility of the barrier.
For Juliet balconies a point fix system work very well with the glass being clamped along the lateral edges with the glass oversailing the opening giving an unrestricted and open appearance from the inside whilst conforming to building regulations.
