Glass Balustrade for Universities


Glass Balustrade for Universities

glass balustrade for universities

In the UK, schools, colleges and universities come in all shapes and sizes, but regardless of size, students, staff and visitors, all require safe access and movement around the campus buildings.

With all UK universities competing against each other to attract the best students, a key factor when it comes to a student deciding which educational institution to attend, could come down to the aesthetic appearance of your campus.

Therefore, it is essential that the exterior and interior features of your university are up to the aesthetic requirements of a modern-day institution.


The use of high-quality architectural glass balustrades in universities and other educational environments provides a stylish and contemporary result that is functional and easy to maintain.

With a clear glass balustrade system in place you can significantly improve visibility; use acoustic glass to soundproof specific areas or create glass structures to make new spaces. A glass door makes an impressive entrance that can be both secure and fire-rated glass; glass balustrades can open up gloomy stairwells and structural glass screens enclose meeting rooms without obscuring light.

Product Sectors

Glass Staircases for Universities

Students want to be educated in the best available facilities and with so many higher education institutions to choose from, it is imperative that the internal and external features of the university reflect the positive learning environment that students are looking for.

Steel Handrails for Universities

If your University spans across multiple sites or floors, with more than one staircase, it is compulsory to have a steel handrail on both sides of the staircase, to protect people from falling from great heights as set out in the Approved Documents K&M.

Mezzanine Floors

A mezzanine floor removes the need to move to bigger premises and uses up potentially wasted space in the height of the building.
