BMW is synonymous with quality and luxury so when the Chester dealership of the Halliwell Jones BMW franchise recently underwent a refurbishment and expansion programme worth £1.5 million, it was important that every aspect reflected the quality of the BMW brand.
When it came to an internal balustrade, the dealership had specified clear glass to create a clean and sophisticated finish that wouldn’t detract from the beauty of the cars. As well as straightforward rectangles, the balustrade also had several unusual shapes that meant a glazing expert was needed to supply the glass. The contractor turned to specialist glazing manufacturers TuffX for support.
TuffX recommended 15mm toughened glass with polished edges for all the pieces needed for the balustrade. As well as providing the sophisticated look required, the glass would also meet all safety requirements, an essential element for a public space such as a car showroom. In total, TuffX provided 20m2 of glass for the balustrade, which was all manufactured at its Merseyside headquarters.
As demonstrated in this project, glass balustrades are perfect for design-led, high specification projects in the commercial sector. As one of the UK’s leading specialist glass manufacturers, TuffX works alongside leading architects and contractors and has developed a stunning range of balustrading, infill panels and glass panels.
The company’s expertise in this area means that the BMW dealership was just the latest in a long line of contracts for prestigious projects throughout the UK. So the next time you need to make an impact with glazing, perhaps TuffX should be your first port of call?
