We make some balustrading entirely out of metal and glass, for an ultra-modern look, with the highly versatile parts from Q-Railing, an innovative brand in the field of railing systems.

The Q-Railing ranges are ideal for residential and commercial properties and we have the parts to build their baluster railing systems, used to construct the perfect premium glass balustrade.

These systems are designed to be easy to construct. However, some are not recommended to fit this up a staircase due to the nature in which the base channel needs to be anchored to the ground. Consult our team for information. See the bottom of the page for some details on some of our Q-Railing parts designed to work with round profile handrails. 

Although we only have a limited selection of these railing parts currently listed on our website we can supply the full range of parts from Q-Railings that allow you to build glass balustrade for internal and external installations, simply discuss your options with our design team..
