This project is an excellent example of how different fixing methods and systems can be combined in a final project. The easiest way to install the glass balustrade on the landing was with a structural glass channel, which became tricky down the stairs. Stand-offs are often the most accessible and cost-effective system to use down a staircase. Another bonus is that you don’t have to work out exact angles and dimensions, as stand-offs lend themselves to templating the glass.

Templating is about as straightforward as it sounds – timber is cut to the size you need for your glass panels. This means you can create the angles/notches/corners, etc, your panels need to have without using complicated geometry to get there! We can then either collect these templates or you can drop them off at our unit. After that, the panels get digitised, and the exact sizes are sent through to production. It is essential that templates are accurate and that any holes or notches are precisely as needed. If your template has a random hole in the middle, you will find that your glass panel has a random hole in the middle too! When using stand-offs, we recommend putting the studs into the substrate first so that the holes are exactly where they need to be on the glass.
