To increase outdoor living space, this residential property in Tynemouth wanted to install a balcony with beautiful views and provide the onlooking room with a touch of the outdoors.
Leaders in bespoke glass/mirror design and installation, Glass & Mirror Solutions, approached the Specialist Glass Products team to supply 1800mm high glass balustrade screen to the sides of the new balcony to conform to the building regulations for viewing onto the next-door neighbour.
What did we supply?
Specialist Glass Products supplied two 21.5mm Toughened Laminated with white diffuser, 900mm x 1800mm flat glass panels.
What are the benefits?
When incorporating a new balcony to the side of your property, you need planning permission which takes the importance of overlooking, overshadowing, safety, a lack of precedence and whether the property is in a Conservation Area or is a Grade I or II Listed Building into consideration.
Thanks to our tall Toughened Laminated white diffuser glass balustrades, you can ensure privacy and safety whilst still creating an attractive open-space illusion.
Although the panels are made from glass, they are not transparent, ensuring privacy to your neighbours, and the Toughened Laminated glass feature means the panels are strong, tough and durable, fulfilling the safety element.
Graeme Hawes, Director at Glass & Mirror Solutions, said: “Specialist Glass Products balustrades were the ideal solution to create a bright open space while staying in line with the building regulations and planning requirements. This isn’t the first time we have worked with the SGP team, and we expect to continue building a strong relationship whilst working on more projects in the future, both big and small.”
