As a construction material, glass is becoming an increasingly popular choice for developers, home owners, architects and designers, for use within construction projects of all types and sizes, and it’s very easy to understand why – an internal partition, balcony or architectural feature can bring stunningly clean and stylish transparency to any building. Contemporary glass designs open up interiors, adding value and style without compromise, creating a feeling of enhanced spaciousness, free of any visual obstructions. The use of established designs and calculations for structural glazing has meant that glass products can now be used with greater confidence and in increasingly innovative ways both domestically and commercially.
Getting a glass solution right first time – both practically, and via the initial design phases – can be complex, from structural strength’s to design features alike. To get the very best out of using structural and architectural glass in your project, including design and analysis, you will find that you need project support from experienced glass designers, engineers and craftsmen.
Glass solutions have always been widely popular choices for commercial projects – for public buildings looking to create a clean, hygienic look and to provide transparency to clients – however, you may find that residential projects are beginning to latch onto the idea of replacing a door or a balustrade or two with high-quality glazing. Generally, glass installation or renovation will come hand in hand with open-plan renovation, or will generally be sought after if a homeowner of project manager is interested in maximising potential views within a property, or if they are interested in the energy efficiency that comes hand-in-hand with wall-to-wall glass.
At Elysion we provide a wide selection of architectural glass solutions to suit commercial and domestic needs – Our high quality toughened, or laminated and toughened, glass products are ideal for use both indoors and out, toughened to BS 6206 class A, they comply with all relevant British Standards for both strength and safety. With our substantial expert knowledge built up over many years we are happy to advise and provide support on all aspects of using architectural glass effectively and safely, from large scale commercial new build developments to domestic renovation.
Elysion can also advise you on the more unusual glass solutions such as glass stair treads, all glass staircases, and our glass floor panels. In addition we can discuss the many options that exist for all kinds of frameless glass doors, screens and partitions. Glass is a durable and versatile material which is easily cleaned and maintained to preserve the initial impact of your design. We choose from the best available fixtures and fittings worldwide, or can manufacture bespoke items meet your exact needs to fit in with and compliment your overall scheme.
As with all of our bespoke products, our architectural glass is custom-made and designed to suit your vision and unique requirements. Before we start actual manufacture of your project, we will spend time developing your ideas into highly accurate, easily understood, rendered 2D or 3D CAD drawings, models and renderings which illustrate our solutions in full. Once we are satisfied we have interpreted your vision and requirements correctly, your glass solutions will be issued for CNC manufacture and heat treatment by one of our carefully selected subcontractors.
Our expert site team can be on hand to install your glass solutions anywhere in the UK, or we are happy to deliver to your site on a supply only basis.
Keeping your vision at the heart of the project is part of our ethos – we believe that while we should be on hand to offer as much advice and support as required, it is important that you retain as much control over your project as possible, and as such Elysion will be happy to bring expert support to your residential or commercial project wherever you may require it.
The team at Elysion did a great job on installing our balustrade; it looks excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services! The handrail on the glass has worked well and doesn’t look out of place with the gallery handrail. Many thanks for a job well done
The work that Elysion did for us was great and it looks fab. Thank you Steve.
