Our Products

 

Glasstec Systems have many years of experience in the supply and fit of the highest quality bespoke glass products, including glass partitioning, structural glazing and glass balustrades.

 

Structural Glazing

Glass can now be cantilevered and structured in such a wide variety of configurations that designers are able to get more and more creative with it. As architects enjoy more freedom when working with glass, so they push for higher and higher performance levels from the glass they use. As its structural capabilities improve, so structural glazing is becoming more and more frequently prescribed.

 

We are seeing this type of glazing more and more for corporate and commercial buildings like shopping complexes and sports stadia. Originally designed for office buildings, many designers are creating modern glass extensions to people's

domestic residences.

 

Structural glazing keeps the cold out of your building in winter and keeps excessive heat out in summer, thereby reducing the need for excessive air conditioning costs. Designed to be extremely strong, buildings that incorporate structural glazing will enjoy many benefits including increased safety against air and water infiltration.

 

A building with structural glazing generally is both durable and easy to maintain. The glass used can also be self-cleaning, so, no smears or streaks on your office windows.

Glass Partitions

Utilising elegant, precision engineering in their design, the glass partitions we supply and fit always meet the highest quality standards.

 

Glass partitions are solid demountable glass walls that act as glass dividers between pre-defined room areas. They can be either single or double-glazed, separating areas and dividing spaces within your office, shop, clinic, home or restaurant. Their flexibility means that they offer almost limitless possibilities for the design of your design space.

 

Frameless glass partitions are very popular with our residential and commercial clients. They are fabricated using clear or sometimes frosted 10mm or 12mm thick glass that is toughened for safety reasons. Because they are demountable, glass partitions can be installed, re-arranged and re-installed whenever and wherever you need them.

 

Our high quality glass partitions allow lots of natural light into office and residential spaces. Many users subsequently claim this helps staff to relieve stress while enhancing the aesthetics of your building's indoor design without compromising its effectiveness.

Glass Canopies

Glass canopies primarily offer protection from the elements for all the people using the door below. As a stylish architectural design element, they add functionality to the space directly outside your building's entrance.

 

Glass canopies embellish homes. They can also provide cover or shade to staff outside office buildings, covering entrances to hotels, patios, garages and retirement homes, protecting the people you care about from the weather.

 

Using high quality material both in terms of the glass supplied and all the relating materials involved, our glass canopies come in many different types, styles and colours. Most are made with clear toughened laminated glass but you can choose coloured or tinted glass if you wish to complement the aesthetics of your building. Glasstec Systems can also fit larger than normal bespoke frameless glass canopies where needed.

Fire Rated Glass

Whether it is fire-resistive or fire-protective, all of our fire rated glass has passed a test

to prove that it can stop the spread of fire and smoke and carries an official rating that ranges from 20 minutes up to three hours. All of our fire-rated glass carries an official label describing the manufacturer, the safety standards it delivers, the listed fire-rating,

as well as the test standards and testing agency.

 

The fire-rated glass we fit can meet a vast array of safety and security requirements without necessarily sacrificing aesthetic good looks for security. For example, with the increased transparency of our fire rated glass walls, we can maximize the amount of daylight allowed into our customer's office buildings.

 

We only fit fire rated glass because of our experience in this field. With the additional security fire rated glass brings to the property, your peace of mind is guaranteed.

Glass Roof Lights

Whether walk on or standard, our glass roof lights are much sought after, mainly because of the way the light they allow into your room is so evenly dispersed. This adds a contemporary sophisticated feel to the property. This sense of modern elegance undoubtedly adds value to the properties we have worked in.

 

Glasstec Systems technicians only use high quality glass to your exact requirements.

Our experienced fitters will take care of all the technical issues of the build in a speedy and effective manner leaving you free to enjoy the benefits of your glass roof light in the shortest time possible.

Frameless Glass Roofs

While they have been popular for commercial buildings for a long time, many people

are choosing glass roofs for their own homes as well nowadays.

 

Both residents and office staff love glass roofs because they allow natural sunlight in

without permitting too much heat. While the heat they allow into the room below can

present a problem during hot days, you can always use a tinted glass so the room

remains cool, allowing some light in, yet darkening the room slightly to protect you

from the sun's excessive heat.

 

There is scarcely any better place to relax with friends than under your own glass roof

in your own property. They provide great panoramic views and make idyllic places for watching the stars at night.

Frameless Glass Showers

Our frameless glass showers offer our clients a sense of wide open space in their bathroom area. The transparency of the glass shower screens and the elegant Ć«framelessness' of the shower frames can accentuate the colour of your wet room tiling. So this type of shower looks particularly attractive and fresh, giving the impression that your bathroom is a lot larger than it really is.

 

Many or our residential clients say that the added benefits of installing our frameless glass showers have considerably increased the overall value of their home. It is also worth remembering that frameless glass showers are especially good energy savers, keeping the heat in and thereby saving money on your winter fuel bills.

Juliet balconies

The classic Juliet balcony, a mini-terrace made safe by a strong balustrade, parapet or railing, is an eye-catching residential feature that many find hard to resist. You can choose a "faux balcony" design mimicking a classic European estate, or select a more contemporary feel. With a few simple, small adjustments to the curvature and lines of the banisters and railings, your Juliet balcony can be made to look very romantic or more casual according to your taste.

 

Juliet balconies were named after the famous balcony scene from Shakespeare's tragic love story Romeo and Juliet. Like a petite porch or a very shallow balcony perhaps a foot (or 30cm) deep, a Juliet balcony is smaller than a traditional balcony. With enough room for one, or at most two, people to stand on, some Juliet balconies don't have any floor at all, being simply a set of railings held flush to the wall for visual effect.

 

With safety in mind, the railings must be firmly attached to the building, fixed properly into the structure of the building to withstand the combined weight of several adults

leaning on them.

Coloured Glass

Our backpainted coloured glass splashbacks bring beautiful bright colours into our client's kitchens and bathrooms. As a modern, hygienic alternative to cheap laminates and tiles, our backpainted coloured glass provides a gorgeous addition to any traditional or contemporary design.

 

With backpainted glass, you can choose from a virtually limitless spectrum of colour. It is always reassuring to know that we use the highest quality low-iron glass so the backpainted colours applied can literally shine through. As a result, the reflective, glossy colour of our glass splashbacks will remain constant over time and your pure white backsplash will continue to look pure and white, and not go any kind of green or aqua-marine shade. Therefore, there is no unintentional tinting or dulling of the original colour so the Ć«as-new' look is maintained for years to come.

Frameless Glass Shop Fronts

Glass shop fronts are definitely looking more attractive these days because shop front designers can now choose from a far wider range of thicknesses, colours and levels of opacity. So, the aesthetic potential of the previously humble glass shop front has radically improved.

 

Because of new more advanced techniques in sealing the glass and bonding the frame, the glass shop fronts you see today are not only extremely attractive, but also they are made with far higher performance levels built in by default. Further advances also mean that they require next to no maintenance nowadays either.

 

No wonder so many architects and designers are coming Glasstec Systems asking us to supply and fit more and more frameless glass shopfronts.
