1st Folding Sliding Door’s Virtually Frameless glass Balustrades are designed to work with our Bi-folds, French doors, Sliding doors and Tilt and Turn window systems.

Designed in-house by our own team, 1st Folding Sliding Door ’s virtually frameless system creates a modern stylish and slimline balustrade that moves away from the traditional look of iron balustrades.

With Polished Glass edges and Crystal Clear Glass without the need for a top or bottom rail, our balustrades form an integral part of the frames of the door – offering a complete difference in design that is unique in every way by providing an uninterrupted view of the outside environment. 

Due to it’s sleek and modern look, our Virtually Frameless Glass Balustrade system has been a popular choice for our residential and trade customers.  Lending itself well to existing designs and conversions and giving homeowners that ‘Grand Design’ look.


Safety and Warranty:

If you have safety concerns about using glass as a balustrade, worry not! Our glass balustrades are incredibly durable and safe, made from using 16.8mm laminated glass, with a maximum width of 2.5m. The glass has a 10-year de-laminate warranty; additionally, the glass used has been impact tested and held as a barrier. Since our balustrades are fitted to the structure of the building and not face fixed it, therefore, provides additional support to the unit. The glass has been tested for point loading up to 6.4 times more than the EU requirements and would have continued if not for time constraints!  

Cleaning Glass Balustrades: 

A glass balustrade is easy to maintain; just use warm water and a mild detergent, which should suffice to get any dirt and fingerprints marks off, and you can finish by wiping with a soft dry cloth.
