High performance architectural laminated safety glass from specialist manufacturer Romag has been specified for Sainsbury’s newly refurbished Nine Elms store in London.

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.

Opened in October 2016, the 6,100 sq. m Nine Elms is Sainsbury’s latest ‘store of the future’ development, incorporating a combination of Argos and Habitat shop-in-shops. The overall mixed-use development features the residential element to help finance the refurbishment of the store that has been in place for over 30 years.

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.

Nelson Covacha, senior project manager at M Price, said: “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.”

Romag is a UK pioneer with more than 70 years of glass laminating experience and expertise. Established in 1943, the firm has built a strong reputation around the globe for manufacturing high quality specialist security glass products in a range of shapes and sizes to meet individual client aspirations.
