Vertical glass systems are an elegant addition to any outdoor space, providing shelter from heavy winds, whilst also offering an aesthetic element to your property. Floods of natural lighting will enter your building with our vertical guillotine glass, helping to uplift your space and increase property value. Where are you looking to install your vertical glass systems? There are so many different options when it comes to integrating these structures, let’s take a look at some ideas!  

Restaurants, bars, and cafes   

Firstly, perhaps one of the most obvious places to install vertical glass systems is in your restaurant, bar, or café. As popular hospitality spots, you want to create a venue that is visually enticing and practically appealing, in terms of warmth and comfort. Vertical glass systems by Designer Shade Solutions Ireland offer the perfect resolution to this! You could use our frameless vertical guillotine glass systems to divide areas within your restaurant, such as the bar and seating areas. This helps to add a dynamic design to your hospitality outlet without obstructing surrounding views. Another great option for your restaurant includes our retractable glass windows and doors which create a modern and stylish touch for guests to enter or exit the building.  

Retractable roof pergola  

Do you have a retractable roof pergola from Designer Shade Solutions? Vertical glass systems are a great addition to upgrade your pergola with retractable roof. By attaching vertical guillotine glass XL or standard to your retractable roof, you can create an outdoor room that shelters from varying weather conditions like wind and rain. In our recent case study, the Dusk restaurant in Brentwood used vertical glass systems with their retractable roof pergola to create a sheltered environment for alfresco dining. They further customised this structure by integrating heating systems, so that customers can remain warm and protected throughout the year. Our vertical glass structures can also be combined with bifold or sliding systems to increase airflow, particularly during the summer months, creating year-round functionality.  

Balconies, patios, and terraces  

Another excellent spot to implement vertical glass systems is on your balcony, patio, or terrace, whether that be residential or commercial. The vertical guillotine glass frameless systems create an ideal windbreaker during the gustier seasons, making them a perfect match for rooftop bars or balconies which are exposed to stronger winds. You can also use our frameless guillotine glass structures to create a balustrade on your balcony, terrace, or patio, providing safety, style, and comfort, all in one.   

There are an endless number of ways to integrate vertical glass systems throughout your property or outdoor space, adding beauty and practicality throughout. If you have a specific design vision in mind, speak to a member of our team and we can help to build your ideal system!
