Common Farm, Staffordshire
30th July 2019
Glass balustrades and even glass floors from TUFFX form part of a radical transformation of Staffordshire farmhouse.
The company provided the project with 10sqm of 33mm laminated walk-on floor panels, each finished with a Dream Anti-Slip glass layer. Both these, and the perpendicular balustrades were cut with radial corners to match the contours of the overlooked outdoor swimming pool and drystone walls.
Managing director Graham Price said: “While TuffX has supplied products of this type for many projects, it’s not often that we need to really consider the natural surroundings as much as we did at Common Farm. Installing large panes of glass within such a beautiful, scenic setting is simple; making it appear as though it belongs, takes extra thought.
“The polished surfaces reflect sunlight from every angle, and ensure that the panoramic view of the countryside is never compromised. Our clients wanted the balcony to enhance their property and act as an observation point while remaining functional. We feel that we have absolutely achieved this aim within this project.”
