What are glass clamps?
It’s more and more common to see glass balustrades in all kinds of commercial and domestic settings. Along stairs, around balconies, on the edges of decking and around a pool, glass panelled railings are attractive, practical and affordable.
In order to keep the glass in place, glass clamps are the best solution, as drilling holes can weaken the structure.
How are glass clamps used?
Glass balustrades look equally great in a domestic home, commercial shopping centre, an office building, or a public space. In the past, there were quite a few restrictions on where you could reliably and safely use glass, but with modern technology, they have far more applications.
Innovations in glass clamps are one of the reasons glass can be more widely used in a variety of different settings. Glass clamps safely and securely hold the glass in place, preventing it from sliding, moving or wobbling.
Why choose glass clamps?
Glass clamps are always used when affixing glass to a balustrade or railing system, as it allows for them to be safely installed and utilised. They are necessary to connect glass panels to central posts and handrails without damaging the glass. Even if you expertly drill holes in tempered glass, the holes weaken the overall structure and make the glass far more susceptible to shattering. Toughened glass is very robust and strong, and in order to keep it that way, glass clamps are a must.
Glass clamp designs
Most glass clamps have the same basic design – a double-sided rubberized clamp with an L shaped bracket that is screwed into the posts/wall/bricks etc. The edges can be square, rectangular or rounded, and accommodate glass thickness between 6 to 12.76 mm.
