Glass Links

About

Glass links are a fantastic way to seamlessly connect the old with the new. Glass is one of the most sympathetic and versatile materials to bring the old and new together in classic or modern architecture; it can give prominence to traditional features while creating contemporary spaces. Whether it’s a glass link corridor, or a small and discreet glass link, our new to old designs can create an almost invisible transition between structures. Linking old buildings with modern designs can present a challenge, but we take the necessary time to design the finest installations imaginable.

For those tasked with working on an historical or listed building, finding a glazing solution which meets regulations can be difficult – but a Cantifix glass link could be the answer. Seamlessly and elegantly combining the old with the new in design, these glass links can highlight the beauty of original structures, while providing a practical glass link between two buildings.

These glass links are some of our most refined work, and represent a culmination of our years of experience and expert precision when it comes to glass design. We understand the planning restrictions in place with older buildings, and will design a solution with you that not only meets requirements, is also aesthetically stunning.
