Coastal Charm in City Beach

Coastal Charm in City Beach

29th April 2020

Situated a stone throw away from Perths’ beautiful shores, this modern designed masterpiece by Banham Architects, built by Tony Tomizzi Builders have blended a range of Tough Glass products throughout the home. Features include frameless glass balustrades with contemporary timber handrails to the internal staircase, floor to ceiling glass doors and frameless external glass balustrade.

The use of glass to the interior balustrade has increased the amount of natural light flow throughout the home but also effectively removed visual weight creating the sense of additional space.

Feature Product: Kazimir Slimline Doors, Westec’s new system pictured on the front elevation boasts simplicity, minimalism and elegance. Flush sill technology and availability to select either single or double glazed options are only a few highlights in this range.

ToughView™: Our engineered custom laminated product favored for the use in frameless balustrades combines toughened glass with a SGP structural laminate interlayer. Key solutions include; safety (if broken the panel will remain intact), ability for use in a frameless application and superior edge finish. ToughView™ is manufactured locally enabling custom finish sizes and efficient lead times. We are also the first company in Australia to have received SentryGlas® Qualified Network Laminator certification. That’s piece of mind our laminated products are tested to the highest quality.

  • May I just say that your staff at Tough Glass are providing us with excellent service. We have never in all the years experienced such a service. I rang on Wednesday to request a couple of urgent panels for which we collected this morning. That truly is amazing!!

    Everybody should use Tough Glass and I would never use anyone else regardless of pricing like some do. I don’t think we have ever received a bad piece of glass from Tough Glass either. It’s a credit to you and your staff.
