Culyers Yard, situated in the heart of Brentwood Town Centre, consists of 13 luxury one and two bedroom apartments. Six of the apartments have the added benefit of a balcony, giving the properties identity and additional living space. The development also contains one 4,000 sq ft commercial unit.
Laidlaw specified and fitted all six structural glass, inset balconies to the development, with a specialised, square, stainless steel top rail. The solution provides uninterrupted views of the surroundings with a sleek finish, whilst providing the ultimate level of safety to residents.
The hybrid system was used for this project, a structural glass balustrade with 43mm aluminium base shoes, making them barely visible. The balustrade was supplied with 15mm thick clear toughened float glass, overall a clean and contemporary choice
We recommend this system if the balcony is under 2.6 meters wide and set 1100mm above finished floor level, as the system will not require uprights at this size. This makes for a very cost-effective solution for smaller applications.
Structural glass balustrades usually require fixing grounds, which were not available at Culyers Yard due to the balcony structure being made of timber. The hybrid system, was ideal for this scenario as the strength comes from the top rail making it an excellent solution for where fixing grounds are not available.
