Just Using Glass
Using only Glass Structural glazing or ‘Planar’ glazing is often used to enhance prominent areas of commercial buildings. Large glass facades are possible which create stunningly attractive environments with more light and an unmatched feeling of space. A viewing location that would benefit from large uninterrupted areas of glass is also an ideal application. The system comprises of frameless glass units each of which is supported by point fixings, normally stainless steel. A fully flush glass surface is achieved with the minimum of structure and the maximum visual clarity. Support is usually taken from a separate structure, glass fins or portals can also be used.

Enclose a pool
What better way to enclose a swimming pool than with large span Conservatory themed building. We’ve used both timber and maintenance free materials to create large brightly lit areas ideal for pool environments. Glass or polycarbonate can be used to cope with wide spans. These glazed areas create a wonderful outdoor feel, but without the weather!
Swimming Pool Enclosure
Our first pool enclosure was completed in 1988. Weston Turville Manor house, an important listed building and family home in Buckinghamshire had just added a swimming pool. All year round use was required so a practical and effective enclosure was essential. The design challenge of blending in with such a location was formidable. Hardwood frames reflecting the traditional handmade craftsmanship of the past were an important feature. Large opening doors allowed the adjoining terraced patio area to really become part of the pool space.
Glazed Lanterns again made in traditional wood provided loads of natural light. The orangery style poolhouse became such a feature to the property that further additions were made mirroring the same style. Further notable projects followed including the 5 star Adare Manor hotel and Golf resort in County Limerick. Set in the unique surroundings of this Gothic style Manor house our pool enclosure was constructed using Western Red Cedar from British Columbia.
