  1. Spigot System – Uninterrupted Views, Solid Foundation:
          • Overview: Spigots, or ‘foot clamps,’ anchor the glass without the need for upright posts, ensuring uninterrupted panoramic views.
          • Materials: Solid 316 marine grade stainless steel for durability.
          • Features: No handrail required for a truly frame-less look, with optional glass-to-glass stiffeners for added safety.
          • Installation: Easy to install with no holes in the glass, making adjustments hassle-free.
          • Ideal Application: Perfect for patios, offering cost-effectiveness and resilience against water and debris building up at the bottom.

  1. Standoff Frame-less System – Minimalist Excellence:
          • Overview: Standoff fixings attach glass horizontally, providing a minimalist aesthetic.
          • Materials: Stainless steel buttons secure the glass to the structure.
          • Features: No need to drill through waterproof layers; suitable for narrow Juliette balconies.
          • Considerations: Installation from the exterior may require scaffolding or a lift.
          • Ideal Application: Ideal for parapet walls in flat roof spaces, offering a sleek and modern appearance.

  1. Channel Frame-less System – Clean Lines, Modern Class:
          • Overview: A ‘U’-shaped channel secures the glass, bringing clean design to any project.
          • Materials: Typically anodised silver aluminium channel, with an option for black at an additional cost.
          • Features: Versatile for domestic or commercial use, internal or external installations.
          • Considerations: Requires an adequate ‘ring beam’ for proper installation (strength and water ingress).
          • Ideal Application: Popular for balconies on the edges of roofs, providing a modern and classy touch.

  1. Post System – Commercial Appeal, Glass Gates:
          • Overview: Popular in commercial spaces, ideal for holiday chalets where glass gates are needed.
          • Materials: Stainless steel posts and handrails, with glass as a non-structural element.
          • Features: Thin, non-laminated glass saves on material costs; suitable for glass gates.
          • Considerations: Labour-intensive due to more stainless steel work.
          • Ideal Application: Well-suited for commercial projects where a combination of durability and aesthetics is essential.
