Toughened structural laminated glass by Bent & Curved Glass facilitates fully frameless balustrade systems without the need for a toprail or handrail.
Toughened glass is made by heating annealed glass to approximately 700 degrees Celsius before its outer surfaces are cooled rapidly. This process makes the glass stronger, more shock-resistant, and thus durable.
Curved laminated glass is produced by permanently bonding two pieces of glass together with an interlayer. The interlay acts to hold the glass together in the event of a breakage.
This engineered solution incorporating a structural interlayer allows for a seamless, virtually invisible balustrade without compromising on safety, function or performance.
Aesthetically, the curved glass balustrades add to a modern and fresh design, providing uninterrupted views and enhancing the sense of space.
