Point Resolution Bridge – Glass Balustrades and Textured Concrete
Glass balustrades today can be incredibly exciting! Point Resolution Bridge in New Zealand is a case in point. Completed in 2013, it was designed by architectural firm Warren and Mahoney. This is a wonderful example of using the strength of glass to create a sculptured piece of architecture, which is used as a walking bridge and connects the Parnell baths with the headland of Point Resolution/Taurana in New Zealand. Wrapped in a steel exoskeleton with etched concrete and glass details, this lovely bridge appears to float, while providing pedestrians with an extraordinary view.
This marvelous bridge along Auckland’s waterfront is a very innovative and fresh approach to using toughened glass in a waterfront setting.

When choosing a Balconette product, you have the choice of three railing options. No handrail, a Circular handrail or an Aerofoil handrail.
Both handrail options have commonalities. They give you a sense of security and something to hold onto. This is especially important for balconies which are likely to be used by children, the elderly or people with physical limitations.
Both handrails are made to the same high standard, and are available in a choice of four finishes to suit your requirements.

Installing curved glass sliding doors could be one of the most incredible things you do to your home or project. But so many people look longingly at such a design; and then settle for something more conventional. “Too costly” they sigh. “A nightmare to fit” they mutter. “You need a real specialist and there’s no-one that can supply at a reasonable cost” they think. We hate to be spoilsports, but they’re not quite right.

Do I Need Planning Permission for a Juliet Balcony?
One of the questions we frequently hear asked is “do I need planning permission for a Juliet balcony?” The answer tends to be no, but there is no straight answer. Read on to understand more about planning regulations for Juliet balconies. A Juliet balcony is not a traditional balcony so planning regulations are more lenient. As you do not need an external platform for the balcony, very little alteration is taking place to your property.

Isn’t it a dream come true, glass that cleans itself? No more dust, grime, calcium deposits and dirt to ruin the views?
One of the most tedious tasks in life is maintenance and cleaning. Just the words “self cleaning” will sell almost anything. It is an obvious requirement and will always fetch more money. But does it work? And is it worth the extra expense?

Curved Sliding Doors Showcasing a Killer View.
Curved sliding doors are all about the illusion of space. While not looking particularly remarkable in themselves, they make the outside look spectactular. If you have a great view, there is no better way to show it off than with curved sliding patio doors that wrap around a part of the room and seem to almost disappear while giving the feeling of being outside and immersed within that fabulous vista.
