Installation of Frameless Glass Balustrades in Rustington, West Sussex

In the picturesque seaside town of Rustington, West Sussex, our team recently had the pleasure of installing a frameless glass balustrade for a client. This project was not just about enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the property, but also about addressing privacy concerns and ensuring durability in a coastal environment. The property was less than 500m from the Sea.

The Challenge: Balancing Privacy with Openness

Our client’s primary requirement was to create an outdoor space that was both open and private. Due to the close proximity of neighbouring properties, it was essential to maintain a sense of seclusion without compromising on the openness that a glass balustrade offers. This led to the innovative inclusion of a glass privacy screen on one side of the balustrade. The glass used was sand blasted glass with a ritec clearshield which ensures that the glass is easy to keep clean

The Solution: A Bespoke Frameless Glass Balustrade mounted in a channel

To meet these specific needs, we designed a bespoke frameless glass balustrade system. The highlight of this system is its seamless integration of a glass privacy screen, meticulously placed to provide the desired privacy without obstructing the panoramic coastal views. This thoughtful design element ensures that the client can enjoy their outdoor space without feeling exposed to neighboring properties.

Material Selection: Durability Meets Elegance – Polished Stainless Steel

Understanding the challenges posed by the coastal location, we selected materials that not only exude elegance but also offer exceptional durability. The frameless glass balustrade was complemented with a mirror-polished stainless steel handrail. Stainless steel, known for its resistance to corrosion, is an ideal choice for coastal environments where salt and moisture can be particularly harsh on materials. The mirror polish not only adds a touch of sophistication but also serves as a layer of protection against the elements. There is a reason why you will always find mirror-polished stainless steel being used on boats and not brushed finish stainless steel. This is purely for maintenance reasons

Installation: Precision and Expertise

The installation process was a testament to our team’s expertise and attention to detail. The balcony was installed on a parapet wall around the balcony edge, a technical challenge that required precision and careful planning. The frameless design of the balustrade demanded exact measurements and meticulous installation to ensure safety and stability while maintaining the minimalist aesthetic.

The Outcome: A Fusion of Function and Elegance

The completed installation is a perfect embodiment of functional elegance. The frameless glass balustrade seamlessly blends with the property’s architecture, providing unobstructed views of the stunning Rustington coastline. The addition of the privacy screen effectively addresses the client’s privacy concerns while maintaining the open feel of the space. The mirror-polished stainless steel handrail not only adds a sleek finish but also stands as a resilient component against the coastal weather.


This project in Rustington, West Sussex, is a prime example of how thoughtful design and material selection can come together to create a solution that is both practical and aesthetically pleasing. The frameless glass balustrade with its integrated privacy screen and polished stainless steel handrail demonstrates our commitment to delivering bespoke solutions that meet our clients’ unique needs. Whether it’s addressing privacy concerns or ensuring durability in challenging environments, our team is dedicated to providing solutions that don’t just meet but exceed expectations.
