Structural Glass is a glass specifically manufactured to serve as a structural element in a building, creating a highly attractive design with more light and greater feeling of space.
We pride ourselves in offering a range of structural glass solutions, which allow the architects to build the entire structure out of glass, creating a bright and contemporary environment for both residential and commercial projects.
Design and Installation
Our In-house architects and designers work with our customers at all times, to fully understand their needs, enabling them to achieve the best overall value in terms of product specification, technical expertise, cost and service.
We specialise in innovative architecture and challenging building projects with specialised materials, complex geometry and novel structural designs.
All our bespoke rooflights are uniquely designed to suit any gap in a roof, and are perfect for creating stylish, beautifully designed and naturally lit buildings.
Our high-performance rooflights are available in double and triple glazed constructions with tempered glass, with an option to upgrade to solar control or self-clean glass. All our frames are designed and manufactured using thermally broken aluminium sections, mechanically jointed and can be powder coated into any colour.
Flat rooflights are greatly suited for contemporary extensions and lofts, where roofs tend to be flat. They can be installed within any roof kerb to allow a controlled influx of light into the below space. These elements are generally mounted to a fixed up-stand on the roof, giving the building a modern and stylish look creating the illusion of open roof space.
Roof lanterns can be made in different shapes and sizes including square pyramid, elongated pyramid and octagonal pyramid rooflight.
In addition to the traditional lanterns, we also offer frameless laterns consisting of slim structural sealed units bonded together, to create a minimalist and attractive look.
Openable rooflights are ideal for allowing natural ventilation, or access to roofs or roof terraces, filling the room with daylight and fresh air. Our manual or electrically openable rooflights combine efficient and minimal design with effortless automation.
Electricaly openable rooflights are operated by a remote control, which enables a partial or full opening of the roof with the option of a built-in rain sensor, which closes the window automatically in the event of rain.
Walk-on rooflights are specifically designed for roof terraces, lightwells and areas that require pedestrian access, while bringing light into the spaces below. Walk-on rooflights are made from toughened laminated glass as double or triple glazed construction, with a range of anti-slip, semi-antislip and pixelated glass options to choose from.
Glass Balustrades and Balconies
The use of glass balustrades is becoming increasingly popular, as they create a contemporary feel and maximise the perception of space through a modern minimalist appearance, retaining views while providing the security and safety required for staircase, balconies and decks.
Used outside, glass balustrades make an excellent windbreak, while they are ideal for interior use too, for room partitions, mezzanines and more.
We provide a range of balustrade systems including, frameless, semi-frameless and handrailed, which are expertly designed to suit each project’s application, from staircases to external balconies.
There are various fixing methods for supporting the glass which we can offer according to your requirements including bolt-on fixing, vice fixing and channel fixing.
All glass balustrades we supply and install are made from toughened glass and are designed to stand the test of time.
Glass shower screens are a great option for those that prefer a more open shower environment. Generally these feature a single openable door or a fixed panel, which can go from simple and elegant to the extraordinary, turning your bathroom into a showplace.
Walk-on glass is manufactured from layers of toughened glass laminated together to create a strong and safe surface, which can fulfil important practical purposes such as introducing natural light to dark rooms and making greater use of floor or roof space.
We provide walk-on glass that can be tailored to meet many shapes and sizes for a range of applications including glass floor, roof-lights, stairs, walkways, glass bridges, hole-covers etc.
We offer 33-80mm toughened laminated walk-on glass as standard with a range of additional options, such as painted glass, various anti-slip finishes, and the option to double glaze the glass for external and fire resistance applications.
The interlayer we mainly use when laminating the glass is EVA, which is ideal for both indoors and outdoors, as it is water-resistant. EVA interlayer is characterised by its extremely high transparency, durability and long term reliability.
Structural Insulated sealed units
Insulated sealed units (double/triple glazed units) comprise of two panes of glass separated by a gas (Argon/Krypton/Xenon) filled space to improve thermal insulation. On average double glazed units are able to provide up to three quarter lower U-value compared to single glass panes. In addition using insulated sealed units, combined with draught proofing, will cut the level of audible noise from outside by up to half.
We provide the most cost effective solution to your structural sealed units requirements, whether it is sound insulation, solar control, thermal efficiency or self-cleaning, advances in the technology of glass have enabled more benefits to be gained from the sealed unit.
All our sealed units are bespoke and are made to our customer’s specifications, using the best materials and machinery to ensure high quality products, with up to 5 years warranty.
Slim Sealed Units
Slim units are insulated sealed units that are slim enough to be installed in most of the existing wooden frames. In terms of thermal and acoustic insulations, these units are as good as standard double glazed units.
One of the biggest advantages of slim units is that they are fitted with ultra-low conductivity, warm edge spacer, which ensures dry glass from corner to corner.
Prime Glass is one of the leading manufacturers of slim units in South East England, providing high quality slim with highly competitive prices and fast turn-around.
Splashbacks (back painted glass)
Using splashbacks is the most practical way to brighten up your kitchen, bathroom or living room and to protect your décor from food and water spills. Our beautiful back painted glass enables architects and designers to create a special atmosphere in homes or offices, making the space truly unique.
Our toughened glass splashbacks are suitable for use behind cooker, induction or gas hob, as well as in showers, bathrooms, wet rooms and outside claddings.
Mirrors have long been used to create light and the impression of space - providing elegant finishing touches to any room. We keep a wide range of mirror products in stock, all of which can be cut to any size and shape, and finished with polished or bevelled edges.
Aluminium Sliding and Bi-fold Doors
Siding and bifold doors enable architects to open up the room to the light creating a functional, open space for living and working. It allows the natural light to enter a room, maximising space and minimising the barriers between the inside and out giving your home individuality and character.
Choosing the right sliding or bifold doors for your house can be extremely important as it can become the charming feature that you need to transform your living space into a dream home.
We offer a range of aluminium doors you can choose from, including SCHUCO , ALUK and ELVIAL products which are the most popular, respected and reliable doors in the market.
Our experienced team is able to provide all of the information you need to ensure that your project runs smoothly from conception to handover.
Switchable Smart Glass
Switchable smart privacy Glass is an innovative, versatile solution for areas where selective privacy is needed. Smart glass alternates between a clear and opaque look at the touch of a button, providing privacy and security by acting as an electronic blind for glass, window or partition.
Through the application of an electrical current at a certain voltage the properties of the glass change turning it from transparent to opaque in less than 0.01 seconds. This transformation can be controlled from a range of wall switches, remote controls or sensors, depending on individual needs.
Our innovative smart switchable film can be either applied to both sides of your existing glass or it can be integrated within multi layered glass panels.
Switchable privacy glass products can be used for a variety of residential and commercial applications such as partition screens and walls, windows, roof-lights and doors, façade glass and security screens and even as an excellent HD projection screen.
Crittall Doors and Windows
Crittall doors and windows are made up of light steel frames, which are elegant and versatile and can be used to either replace your existing windows, or to create a stunning new look. The steel frames not only provide great strength, but they also offer exceptional performance and durability, making them very popular products for both external and internal applications.
The strength of hot rolled steel allows for a thin profile of the crittall windows, which means more glass, thus maximising the daylight and views creating a brighter interior to your home and an elegant and beautiful frame.
Using high performance double glazing, crittall windows also provide great insulation all year round.
