    I don't know, but I'd be tempted to mop and blade them.

    I know they have a name and it's bugging me. I need to email a quote with a break down of everything but I don't know what to call them.

    Any particular reason that you'd recommend mop and blade over wfp on them?

    Balustrade? I'd be scared of going through the glass, I know it will be toughened etc

    That's a railing made with posts / spindles :)

    I'd call it glass roofing. No idea of it has a proper name.

    I thought you wanted the name of the glass above the wall. Not the glass wall itself.

    They are balustrades. Bloody nightmare to clean with trad tools due to the fixing points. WFP if you can :)

    Cheers Damo.
    I'll bear it in mind if he accepts my quote.
