Today’s modern buildings increasingly feature frameless glass doors and balustrades, which both have seen a major growth in popularity due to the products’ contemporary design, including two unique features that appeal to architects and designers alike.
Firstly, sliding stacking frameless glass eliminates the vertical lines from aluminium, providing a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living. It offers up to 97% openness (50% more than conventional sliding doors), contributing to its popularity.
Pål Hansen, founder of local company, FG Frameless Glass, comments: “Secondly, our frameless glass can also go around a 90-degree corner and be applied to curved enclosures. When installed on a balcony, the outside of the glass can be cleaned easily by folding the panels inward to access the outside face of the glass, which is ideal for larger applications such as hotels and resorts.”
The benefits of frameless glass are beautifully demonstrated in a recent project in Paternoster in the Western Cape. In a longstanding partnership with Anker Builders, FG Frameless Glass’s products were used throughout this upmarket residential build. Here the vision was to create light and flowing spaces and a sense of openness to incorporate the beautiful natural surroundings as part of the house.
With customisation key in such high-end designs, FG Frameless Glass offers custom designs and a variety of colours for all their AAAMSA certified products to enable each client’s unique needs. They also offer security shutters, security mesh, aluminium pergolas, and aluminium gates and fences.
