More than 150 sq. m of clear glass has been cut and supplied by Romag as the central feature of a 100 m long freestanding balustrade that runs along the top of the store’s main frontage elevation.
This has been installed as an additional safety precaution for the residents moving into the newly built luxury apartments above the store, who will benefit from access to the open area roof top gardens and leisure space.
Precision engineered to withstand a specified line load of 3Kn/m, the 1.5 m high glass balustrade has been designed and installed by Enfield-based aluminium curtain walling, window and façade designers, M Price.
The result is a visually spectacular store with the balustrade providing an elegant finish, that doesn’t detract from the Sainsbury’s brand yet still serves as an attractive and safe feature of the residential area.
What they say
“The specification required a high quality glass solution to ensure the safety of the residents. Romag has not only achieved this but provided an eye-catching feature that really enhances the scheme’s overall aesthetics.”
