Partitions & Balustrades

RESIDENTIAL & COMMERCIAL
Installing Glass Partitions:

Glass partitions are a great way to break up rooms giving the sense of more space rather than the solid walls or to create additional rooms while using the borrowed light from other areas.

Glass partitioning can be used in both residential and commercial locations. We can supply and install the aluminium channelling and the glass.

Generally we use 10mm Clear glass, and all glass used comply with New Zealand safety standards.

Installing Glass Balustrades:

An ideal option providing a safe and transparent solution to a variety of uses including balconies, staircases, pool fences, wind breaks. All glass we use comply with specifications and requirements of the New Zealand safety standards.

Glass Balustrades can also act as an architectural feature, providing uninterrupted views and practical value of increased light and the impression of wider spaces. 

 

Glass Shelves

GENERAL SHELVING
Custom & Comprehensive:

The glass shelves are custom made in various shapes (square, round, oval, rectangle with square corners and radius corners) and various sizes. For special shaped shelving often a template will need to be made so we can get the shape correct. 

Glass thicknesses can range from 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm depending on the size and use of the shelf. Glass colours are standard glass, which has a green colouring in the glass, which is the most common used, through to grey, bronze, green and for a near perfect colouring low iron glass. Not all glass colours are available in all glass thicknesses.

Glass edge work at a minimum would have Flat polished edges which gives the edge a smooth finish. 

What To Think About:

There are two basic types of shelving tops to consider:

Glass shelves that are fully supported over their entire area.

These shelves are the perfect way to show off your finished shelf surface, while protecting the finished surface from ware and tear. They are custom made to the shape of the shelf being covered. 4mm glass is often used but will depend on length and width of shelving.  

 

Glass shelves that are not fully supported over their entire area.

These glass shelves can be used as a floating shelf allowing clear view to any cabinetry while supported in selected areas of the overall surface. Different glass will be required depending on the span of the shelf and it must overlap its support by at least 4mm.

Span to width radios exceeding 7:1 are not recommended and weight loading should also be taken into account.

All materials used comply with New Zealand safety standards. 

 

Glass Table Tops

SUPPORTED & UNSUPPORTED
Custom & Comprehensive:

The table tops are custom made in various shapes (square, round, oval, rectangle with square corners and radius corners) and various sizes. For special shaped table tops often a template will need to be made so we can get the shape correct. 

Glass thicknesses can range from 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm depending on the size and use of the table. Glass colours are standard glass, which has a green colouring in the glass, which is the most common used, through to grey, bronze, green and for a near perfect colouring low iron glass. Not all glass colours are available in all glass thicknesses.

Glass edge work at a minimum would have Flat polished edges which gives the edge a smooth finish. Glass can also have bevelled edges from 10mm - 40mm depending on the thickness of the  table top.

What To Think About:

Like shelving there are two basic types of table tops to consider.

Glass table tops that are fully supported over their entire area.

These glass table tops are the perfect way to show off your finished table surface, while protecting the finished surface from ware and tear. They are custom made to the shape of the table top being covered. 

Glass table tops that are not fully supported over their entire area.

These glass table tops can be used as a floating table top allowing clear view to the floor while supported in selected areas of the overall surface. Toughened glass would be used for these types of table tops to ensure they are as safe as possible. 

All materials used comply with New Zealand safety standards. 

 

Lead Lights

PROTECTION, INSULATION & SECURITY
Lead Light Protection:

Protect your beautiful glass from the elements and impact from flying objects which can cause your lead lights to move, buckle, bow and eventually break apart and leak.

We can supply and install Protective Shields over the front of the lead light/stained glass windows to strengthen and protect them, this won't affect or change the existing appearance of your lead light/stained glass.
