Every Ion Glass balustrade is fully bespoke, carefully designed and installed

June 2017

Every Ion Glass balustrade is fully bespoke, carefully designed and installed to meet very individual requirements. Whether it’s curved or straight, fully frameless or fitted with your choice of handrail, we will advise on style, fixing methods, installation criteria and the appropriate glass to meet structural requirements and building compliance.
These clients all had very different criteria but the result in every case was an impressive balustrade to meet the homeowners’ needs.

Pevensey Bay The owners of a private beach front home wanted to separate their internal spaces whilst maximising the glorious sea views.

Curved balustrade A deceptively simple internal walkway with a sweep of bespoke curved glass incorporates handcrafted joinery and handmade limestone tiles to create the finished result.

Spiral staircase The sandblasted design on this impressive curving staircase reflects the stainless steel railings, drawing the eye upwards towards a magnificent stained glass rooflight.

Full height balustrade A luxurious central London property features a full height glass balustrade set into concealed channels for a sleek stair to ceiling finish with no visible fixings.

To discuss your residential, heritage or commercial project , call our technical team on 0345 658 9988, email info@ionglass.co.uk or click on the enquiry form on our website.

We’re also pleased to help with any other bespoke structural glass including glass linkways, glass screens and partitions, frameless glass shower screens and glass wall cladding.

St Mary at the Quay structural glass entrance lobby

May 2017

St Mary at the Quay, Ipswich. The church, originally built in the 1500’s had fallen into disuse. It was recently restored and renovated to create a heritage and wellness centre. Ion Glass were commissioned by Bakers of Danbury on behalf of Suffolk Mind and the Churches Conservation Trust.
St Mary at the Quay is a Grade II mediaeval building on the waterfront at Ipswich that had been at the heart of the community and undergone many changes over the centuries but had fallen into disuse over the last 50 years. The Churches Conservation Trust and Suffolk Mind developed a shared vision for the restoration on the building, creating a heritage and wellbeing centre to serve the community and enhance the regeneration of the area.
Substantial use of structural glass throughout the building ensured contemporary functionality without detracting from the magnificence of the original architecture.
The glass entrance lobby in particular, provides a welcoming space that offers immediate visual access to the restored nave whilst at the same time protecting the building from draughts and heat loss via the original entrance.
The structural glass lobby was created from 12mm toughened glass to create a space that fits below the mezzanine floor, without the need to move the ancient font from its original position to the right of the entrance. The construction involved a concealed fixing detail to overcome the differing glass specifications between the 15mm glass panels of the balustrade above and the 12mm glass panels of the lobby.
Structural glass fins were used to stabilise the glass panels for a stylish and minimal result, with the glass secured by simple stainless steel patch fittings.
The glass entrance lobby was completed with a fully sprung glass door, fitted with a simple stainless steel ‘D’ handle. Full security for the building is provided by the outer door, so locks were not required.
The resulting glass structure is robust and functional, fully compliant and meeting all glass and building requirements.
