Glassal’s structural engineering team can design and create bespoke glazing systems and support structures for multiple applications including façades, roof lights, balustrades and floors.
From decorative glazing for homes to practical glazing solutions for offices, hotels, shopping centres and retail outlets Glassal can provide a solution.
Working alongside Architects, Contractors and Property Owners we establish and deliver the right solution that is tailored to suit the individual application, taking account of the Customers needs.
We provide bolted assemblies that are suitable for external or internal applications, including feature entrances, roof lights, partitioning and canopies.
The bolted glass assembly system is a technique for installing glass, either single or double-glazed, using articulated stainless steel bolts, clamp plates and channels.
The bolts are designed to absorb structural loading, the weight of the glazing and the differential movements between the glass and structure.
The system is designed for walls, roofs and canopies, both vertical and inclined, internal and external. The glass panes are usually rectangular but can also be shaped and can be flat or curved in form.
The curtain wall method of glazing allows glass to be used in large uninterrupted areas creating consistent attractive façades.
Supported on a grid of aluminium, steel or timber panes are installed using pressure plates with decorative cover caps. A continuous elevation of glass can be created when glass units connected to the grid using concealed fixings that are embedded within silicone joints between the panes.
A curtain wall creates a modern design aesthetic to any building. Large elevations of glass bring in a flood of natural light and help connect internal space with the outside with minimal interrupting frames.
From flat glass rooflights, to large area roof glazing systems or a fully bespoke solution, we will help you make the most of daylight.
Glassal designs, supplies and installs rooflights for all types of projects from retail parks and leisure centres, to offices, schools, hospitals and private homes.
Flat glass rooflights look great in any setting, and offer outstanding value and performance. Our designs can be developed to include vents that can be mechanically operated to provide natural ventilation or smoke extract.
A cost effective and less invasive alternative to replacement due to water ingress, defective or broken gaskets or broken down or fractured glass panes.
Many of the glazing systems installed over the last 25 years have been proven to be less robust than the systems available today. Glassal provides a variety of refurbishment and preventative solutions to ensure your system remains attractive, watertight and safe.
Glassal provide glazing refurbishment and remedial improvements completed quickly, effectively, economically and without causing major disruption to the buildings occupants.
We can modernise and maintain a wide variety of glazing types including bolted glass assemblies, framed curtain walling and roof lights.
The drive towards larger pane sizes in recent years has created operational and logistical challenges when maintenance and replacement is required.
Glassal are specialists in the provision of glass replacements in high and difficult to reach locations. We approach each situation and develop the safest and most suitable access method and replacement process to ensure that the works are completed safely.
We conduct a detailed survey of the damaged pane in order to establish manufacturing requirements and to select a specification that matches the existing as closely as possible. Our dedicated team will carry out the replacement efficiently and safely, often out of normal working hours, in order to minimise the public and building occupants.
