Across our website, you’ll see countless mentions of frameless glass – it’s a speciality of ours. But how exactly can frameless glass be put to use, and why do so many of our customers in Greater London and Surrey – from Bromley, Croydon, Kingston and Wimbledon, to Esher, Epsom, Cobham and Sutton – opt for it over alternative materials? That’s the question this page looks to answer.
To answer the first part of the question, our glaziers use frameless glass to create the following types of product:
You’ve likely seen frameless glass in offices, retail outlets, hotels, and residential properties (where it’s usually found in bathrooms) around Bromley, Croydon, Cobham, Epsom, Esher, Kingston, Sutton and Wimbledon. Its popularity is due to the sophisticated, modern aesthetic it provides without sacrificing any of the core, functional characteristics that a material needs to stand up to everyday use – especially strength and ease of maintenance. On the strength side of things, frameless glass can be up to five times stronger than its standard equivalent, making it a far cry from the brittle or fragile glass you might see employed elsewhere.
Our frameless glass meets all Building Regulations, so you can rest assured that the product you opt for will meet expectations surrounding safety and security. Their durability is partially down to the careful introduction of aluminium or steel patch fittings at, for example, the corners of a door leaf or similar location. The glaziers at Metropolitan Glass Ltd labour to ensure that these practical design considerations are seamlessly integrated and do not impact the overall aesthetic of your fixtures. What’s more, there are a number of locking choices – with locks engaging with floors, ceilings or walls to protect against would be intruders.
Another reason for the popularity of frameless glass is the fondness that interior designers have for open plan layouts; frameless glass makes for light, airy spaces that feel larger than they might previously have. This can also encourage collaboration when employed in commercial environments like offices. This is why it’s used by so many established businesses in and around Bromley, Croydon, Cobham, Epsom, Esher, Kingston, Sutton and Wimbledon, where teamwork is of vital importance.
Retailers often employ frameless glass to make the most of their shop window space, allowing them to get creative and maximise the number of items on display. This can translate to palpable sales increases, making frameless glass a savvy long-term investment. And whatever type of business you operate, we can incorporate custom logos and particular colours that further personalise your frameless glass. Frosting can also be added to frameless glass partitions, doors and walls to ensure particular spaces have the requisite degree of privacy.
