Ion Glass: a comprehensive service in glass structures

April 2024

When you commission a glass structure for a building project of any nature, it's essential to employ an experienced glass specialist. The finished result needs to be fully compliant, structurally sound and perfectly well as meeting all your design criteria.

This unusual glass structure was designed to provide an entrance for an underground tunnel leading to a swimming pool – it is constructed from double-glazed panels for heat retention.

Suspended glass linkway designed and installed by Ion Glass linking master bedroom suite to the main house. Constructed from double-glazed panels, the inclusion of a glass floor allows light to reach the walkway below.

We created a frameless structural glass porch that also serves as a link between a listed property and a modern extension using a technique of triple laminate glass to replicate traditional 'mortice and tenon' joints.

This unique glass porch creates a statement entrance to a barn renovation. The over-sized glass panels are wholly supported by structural glass fins and beams for a minimal result.
