Frameless Glass Balustrades

Frameless glass balustrades create a dramatic look, maximising light and space. With clean lines and no posts or frames, they offer unobstructed views and a crisp, modern design statement.

Frameless Glass Balustrades

In the home, frameless glass looks amazing on staircase projects but it will also provide a wow factor when used in hallways, landings and balconies. Outside, our frameless glass balustrades give you amazing, uninterrupted balcony or terrace views.

Seagull produces two types of frameless glass balustrades - semi frameless and fully frameless;

  • Fully Frameless Glass Balustrades. The fully frameless glass balustrade offers 100% uninterrupted views as it uses toughened and laminated glass and does not have a handrail on top. 
  • Semi Frameless Glass Balustrades. The semi frameless glass balustrade sees the addition of a stylish round handrail on top. 

Our frameless balustrade system uses an innovative aluminium channel system to hold the glass panels. You can incorporate clear, patterned, tinted, frosted or sandblasted glass in any of the above glass balustrade systems. The system can accommodate a range of different glass sizes; 12mm, 15mm, 17.5mm, 19mm and 21.5mm. There are no limitations of lengths or sizes.

Easy install

The Frameless Balustrade system is easy to install. We cut the glass cut to order so no drilling is required. Click the 'Product Info' tab to take a look at the video to see how the system works. And click on the 'Assembly' tab below for our step-by-step installation guide.

    We have tried to make the system as simple and easy to install as possible, however should you not feel confident enough to fit this please contact a reputable glazier or builder.

    Should any problems arise please don’t hesitate to contact us.

    Step 1: Install Base Rail

    The aluminium base rail should be placed onto its designated position and the holes marked onto the substrate for drilling. The Channel should then be levelled and lined up with the use of shims. Once the shoe is plumb and level, the fixings should be tightened up to make the channel rigid.

    Step 2. Fit the glass slip clamps

    The glass slip clamps need to be placed on the bottom of the glass. This requires lifting the glass off the floor sufficiently or turning the glass upside down to squeeze these on. The slip clamps require spacing so that four are used per metre. The clamps placed on either end of the glass should be located 100mm in from the edge of the glass and then 250mm to the next clamp. The glass can now be placed into the channel.

    3. Fit the Glass Clamp Bar

    Once the glass is fitted in place, you now need to place the clamp bars into the top of each glass slip clamp. First you must screw the bolt into the clamp bar until the head of the bolt just reaches the bar. The shaped side of the bar will sit nearest to the glass.

    You can now sit each clamp bar into the glass slip clamps.

    4. Ensure the glass is plumb and tighten bolts

    You now need to place a spirit level on the glass to get the glass in the correct position. The bolts now need tightening into the channel equally to keep the same pressures on the glass. To adjust the glass into position you must unscrew the bolts back onto the channel.

    To achieve the correct positioning firstly square up and level each end of the glass and tighten. Then tighten the intermediate clamp bars.

    Once the bolts have pinched they now need a half turn to securely hold the glass in place.

    5. Fit the top seal strip

    The gasket requires feeding into the smaller profile supplied, you must not stretch the gasket. Once the gasket is flush with each end of the strip it now needs to be clipped onto the top of the channel, this can be done by pressing firmly down on the profile. Working from one end to the other is recommended.

    Once you are happy everything is in place and the job is complete you need to clean the glass and channel. We recommend the use of any standard glass cleaner so long as it is not abrasive. We also recommend a soft sponge or cloth, again to avoid any risk of scratching.
