Frameless glazing allows you to give a completely new look to the facade of the building, balcony or veranda. This technology came to us from Finland and very soon became popular. It is used in the construction of new buildings or the repair of old buildings.
Technically frameless glazing of a balcony is a rather strong construction from a profile that repeats the shape of the element on which it is mounted. One aluminum profile is attached to the upper plate of the balcony, and the other to the parapet with anchor bolts. Glass is attached to the frame using special movable hinges and glue. In this case, you can choose a transparent, matte or tinted material.
At installation of shutters it is possible to use different systems of a frameless glazing.
Due to the technological characteristics of the frameless glazing of the facades of some architectural elements, gradually displaces the usual double-glazed windows with frames and racks.
Despite the fact that frameless glazing of balconies and loggias is considered a fashionable direction in the installation of balcony railings, not all buyers will find it suitable. In order to make a choice in favor of such a construction, it is necessary to know the shortcomings that may be crucial.
Currently, the production of such windows are engaged in different companies. However, they can make their own adjustments to the system technology, which will distinguish their work. Technologies are divided into two types: Finnish and domestic.
In addition to the use of this technology in the arrangement of the balcony or loggia, the owners of country houses actively use the frameless glazing of the veranda and the terrace. In this case, you can also choose different types of glazing and sizes of paintings. When the doors are closed, the view from the outside can be compared to a solid wall due to the tight fit of the glass to each other.
Having decided to install a frameless design, the customer must make a choice of the type of glazing and the company that will provide services for the manufacture, delivery and installation of the device. Choosing a supplier you need to study its ratings, customer reviews and the cost of services.
