Private Residence, Brackenrigg, Ambleside

Project: Private Residence, Brackenrigg, Ambleside

The brief for this private project in the beautiful rural town of Ambleside in the Lake District was to design, supply and install glass and stainless steel balustrade to the terrace areas, the stone staircase and to the balcony of the master bedroom. The client required a frameless system but without a base channel, and a curved handrail following the line of the stonework.

Q-railing recommended faceted glass under the curved handrail – base clamps in the centre of each glass providing secure, sturdy fixings to the floor. The same system was used on the straight railing and the stairway to ensure continuity. This is just one of the several balustrade systems offered by Q-railing enabling designers to choose a combination of products to suit any application.

The whole project was site surveyed and drawn up by the in-house engineering team at Q-railing Recommended Installer, S&P Structures Ltd, accurately calculating radii for the handrail and the sizes for the glass panels to guarantee the functionality and aesthetics of the installation.

The project was completed to schedule and the client was delighted with the final result.
