Recently completed and with an asking price of £3,000,000, it’s the most expensive house built to date in Abersoch, North Wales.

Having outstanding architectural merit with the highest standards of workmanship, Sunrock Balconies were contracted to provide some of the unique and value adding elements to this truly jaw-dropping property.

Only recently completed, this property has many state of the art features and these were completed using glass and steel fixtures supplied and fitted by Sunrock Balconies.

Our expertise in creating glass balconies, steel balustrades and in this case glass balustrade supports for the staircase was called upon.

You can see in the picture below that the wooden staircase was complimented by a glass and steel balustrade design. Arriving at the first floor landing we created a steel and glass safety balcony that helps create a feeling of space and lets light move through the hallway.

In addition Sunrock installed a special glass floor using opaque Dream glass which was 33mm thick to allow more light into the hallway .

External Glass Balcony

Having provided some internal glass and steel features, we also were contracted to provide the glass balconies feature to the external first floor balcony.

On this glass balcony, steel was not present other than in the fixings at the bottom of the glass balcony. The idea here was to keep the view continuous and unrestricted.

It’s very much what is known outside of the trade by the public as a glass infinity balcony which relies on strengthened glass and minimal exposed fixings. You can see from the picture below that glass balcony is made up of five sheets of glass.

Each glass sheet is then fixed to the property at the base using steel fixings and creates a clean modern balcony that fits with the external architecture of this new build.

When it comes to design elements of your home, especially when it comes to balconies, architects and designers will look at using glass balustrades as a modern designer look and feature for your home. However, many people shy away from this because they have a big fear inside them when it comes to glass. The main concern being safety.


It is understandable, after all, your perception of glass is that it is fragile and could break easily. However, glass balustrades are extremely heavy duty and if bought from a reputable provider, then you can put your mind at ease. You will get the designer look you want, and the safety which is needed for the area to be utilised by everyone. However, you shouldn’t just take our word for it, here is a little more insight into why glass balustrades are safe and also how purchasing through a reputable company can give you the extra peace of mind you need.


Glass balustrades must be made with safety glass



There are UK guidelines in place that specify that glass balustrades must be made using safety glass and there are two types of glass that can be used. Tempered glass and laminated glass.


Tempered or toughened glass


Toughened or tempered glass means that this glass itself is heated to around 700°C and then is cooled quickly, which is known as quenching. The quenching process creates a strong layer on both sides of the glass that locks tension inside. This means that because of this process, tempered glass is four times stronger to impact than regular glass. If it does break, it doesn’t break into large shards like most glass will do, it shatters into small pieces which makes it less dangerous and also easy to dispose of.


Laminated glass


Laminated glass is a bit different. It is made by sandwiching a layer of resin or plastic membrane between two toughened glass panels. Should one of the glass panels break, the membrane then works as a “safety net” and protects the second panel of glass.


It isn’t just about the glass itself 


You also need to take into account that not only is glass part of the glass balustrades option, but you also need to consider the framing and handles. This is when the added extra security can come into play by using specific stainless steel marine grade uprights, fixtures and fittings as well as handrails and frames.


But what about guarantees?


Using glass with metal framing may mean you have the concerns about the longevity of the product. Sunrock Balconies have over a decade of experience and know exactly what it takes to give you the look, security and safety measures you are looking for. Indeed, all Sunrock Balconies, Balustrades and Juliet Balconies are designed, built and installed to pass UK Building Control regulations.

Thinking about adding a balustrade to your balcony or terrace?

Consider glass balustrades first….. here’s why.



Adding a balustrade to your balcony or terrace helps to separate a space for outdoor living from your garden or other external areas. It also provides and essential safety feature if the area is raised and very often adds the perfect finishing touch to your project.

Balustrades can be produced from a variety of materials such as wood, stone, plastic, wrought iron or steelwire. But it’s our Glass Balustrades that we want to talk about here! We call them Infinity Glass Balustrades simply because that is what they offer – an infinity view. But that’s not all they offer – here’s what other qualities they can:

Add Style


Sunrock Infinity Glass Balustrades offer sophistication and elegance to your outdoor living space. They can transform your patio, balcony or terrace by allowing maximum light in plus an uninterrupted viewpoint. Our Infinity Glass Juliet Balconies provide the safety barrier you need for your family whilst at the same time allowing light to flood into your room.


Add Value


Having an Infinity Glass Balustrade installed is most likely to add financial value to your property.  The words ‘high end’, ‘luxury’ and ‘modern’ are all key words you can associate with our balustrades – words which are very often on the wish list of homebuyers looking for a modern finish and luxurious feel to their potential new home.

Add Versatility


The nature of glass ensures that it fits seamlessly into most indoor and outdoor designs. Sunrock Infinity Glass Balustrades are beautifully engineered, ultra-modern and can be completely frameless.  As a result, they deliver a wonderful feeling of space drawing the area beyond in and allowing light to flood in.

Add Durability


Believe it or not glass is very durable. It will not be affected by weathering such as rotting or fading. Our balustrades without a handrail are manufactured with 17.5 mm laminated toughened glass. Those with a secure handrail will be 15mm toughened glass. All rails and fixings are matching marine grade 316 stainless steel which is particularly good if you are by the coast or have a swimming pool.  All glass is certificated.


Add Simplicity


Forget about oiling timber every year or replacing rusty railings. Life is far too busy for that. Sunrock’s Infinity Glass Balustrades are the perfect solution offering a simple cleaning regime rather than time consuming and laborious maintenance.  All you have to do is wipe the glass over with a soft cloth using a mild detergent diluted in water. We’d suggest doing this every 1-2 months, depending on where you live and how the weather has been. Alternatively, how about asking your window cleaner to do it?

If you’d like to know more about our products or would like to talk through a project you have in mind, Sunrock Balconies has a dedicated team of experts who can help and advise you on all aspects of your project. Our aim is to help add function, style, and appeal to your home so get in touch today.
