In addition to mirrors and fire rated glazing at Market Estate, Billericay Glass were called upon to construct frameless Winter Garden enclosures. Wrapping around two elevations, on the second, third and fourth floors, the Winter Garden was manufactured in 21.52mm toughened and laminated safety glass and incorporates a coloured Vanceva interlayer where the architects detail required the new building to mirror the colour palette of the neighbouring, existing buildings.
Individual glass panels are suspended on bespoke fittings, enclosing the balcony area to create an inside/outside space that allows fresh air through whilst protecting the occupant from the elements.
Within the 3 meter high sliding glass walls of the Winter Garden, Billericay Glass also installed a frameless glass balustrade. Once again, manufactured from 21.52mm toughened and laminated clear glass, each glass panel is secured from its base in a continuous aluminium channel, creating a seamless safety barrier, finished with a tubular stainless steel handrail, seated directly on the glass.
