A stylish and safe option for commercial and private properties

Balustrades are an architectural feature that has been used for centuries, it comes in different designs, different materials and can be made to match the style of the surrounding property and the personal taste of its owner. A more recent design, however, is the glass balustrade.

Glass and stainless steel are what we do best, and as a part of our range of services, we offer the supply and installation of beautiful bespoke balustrades. With a sophisticated and contemporary look, glass balustrades provide ease of cleaning, security and safely all while allowing plenty of natural light to pass through into your property.

There are two main types of glass and stainless steel balustrade, a channel system or an integrated post and rail system.


Channel system

This type of glass balustrade system uses a seamless design without posts, maximising the light that can pass through but not compromising in integrity or safety. Constructed with toughened laminated glass panels, and optional handrails, they provide all the safety and security of regular balustrades with a more contemporary style.

This system also allows for the installation of frameless glass balustrades, a design choice that is rising in popularity in both living and working spaces.

Integrated post system

The most common system used for glass balustrades, this uses stainless steel posts and rails with connecting glass panels. Ideal for both indoor and outdoor installation, it's a classic design that still looks fantastic for both homes and businesses.

iFab offers both a supply only service or a full start-to-finish package. For supply only, we will use existing plans to provide you with the right material. Our end-to-end service involves us working with you throughout every step of the project; from helping choose the right designs, sourcing or manufacturing the required material and complete installation.

However, all our jobs are built around you. We can help where needed to meet all your requirements and offer the bespoke addition of this simple but impressive feature to your property.
