VANDAL PROOF BALUSTRADES & FALLING PROTECTION
Hammerglass multifunctional balustrade solutions provide a transparent and attractive barrier for effective wind and noise protection. Our systems are installed as safety barriers around bus terminals and arenas, as falling protection on stands and walls and as balustrades for stairs and balconies. We specially adapt the design of posts and fixings in order to guarantee secure installation of unbreakable, splinter-free glazing solutions. .
Options that last
With a strength 300 times greater than that of glass, and half the weight of glass, Hammerglass is an attractive alternative for public environments.
- The stair balustrade on the way down to the station platform remains intact – with no broken glass – even after the weekend
- Unbreakable glass in the kindergarten outdoor play area guarantees the children’s safety and reduces traffic noise, while at the same time providing a clear view of the surroundings
- Bevelled edges and rounded corners on falling protection for stands minimise the risk of cutting injuries
- It is easy to remove graffiti from the sports pub’s transparent windbreak
The importance of splinter free protective balustrades
It is five o’clock, many have finished for the day - office staff, schoolchildren, mothers with prams - they are all on their way home. It is crowded at the bus stop - then the bus arrives.
Splinter-free balustrade solutions in Hammerglass form an effective barrier between travellers and incoming buses at the bus terminal. Should anything go wrong, a balustrade that does not scatter broken glass can be crucial. Our protective balustrades are delivered with fixed or openable parts. The panels are mounted on the existing balustrade construction, on a Hammerglass post system or by using fixing solutions suited to the project.
Unbreakable glass in stairwells
The stairs to the school yard, to railway premises and to open air public spaces are vulnerable to vandalism. With Hammerglass instead of glass in the balustrade panels, it is no longer as fun for vandals because the glass simply will not break.
Eliminate the embarrassment of broken glass following acts of vandalism, the high cost of clean-up and replacement with heavy and hard-to-handle glass panels with Hammerglass. The panels are mounted on the existing balustrade structure, on a Hammerglass post system or using fixing solutions suited to the project. Mounting the handrails directly in the Hammerglass panels works very well.
Falling protection for arenas and stands
The home team scores goals, the crowd cheers, the pressure increases on the stands. With many people gathered in a limited space, the risk of accidents increases. With Hammerglass in the audience protection instead of laminated or tempered glass, that risk is reduced.
Our splinter-free solutions can be mounted at most public arenas (here at the Swedish National Arena). The panels are produced with rounded corners and bevelled edges to eliminate the risk of cutting injuries. Mounting on the existing balustrade structure, on a Hammerglass post system or using specially developed fixing solutions.
Noise barriers as falling protection...
The Hammerglass system for noise barriers can also be used as transparent protection around playgrounds or skateparks in the centre. Ideal for nurseries, kindergartens or schools in busy urban areas. Effective noise attenuation in combination with a clear view contribute to a good outdoor environment for adults and children of all ages.
Our designers will help with drawings and offer suggestions for functional solutions. We will be happy to provide tenders for complete projects: Made-to-measure Hammerglass, posts, fixing systems and installation.
... and the windbreak that is a noise barrier

Artistic prints, colour and lightning
Hammerglass is normally supplied as clear or opal panels. With larger series of panels however there is the option of producing colour-impregnated Hammerglass. Hammerglass panels can also be screen printed or provided with photographic four-colour printing in order to create a lively and attractive street environment.
A printed or colour-impregnated Hammerglass panel with strategically placed LED-illumination creates a striking effect, providing an attractive focal point of light in the night darkness.
