Jesmonite balustrade for London restaurant

Posted on 23rd August 2022

This Jesmonite balustrade is being created for the refurbishment of a London restaurant. The images below show the component parts of the balustrade being manufactured in our workshop. Each baluster is moulded in two halves before being fixed together, and the rail is cast in curved sections to suit the bespoke requirements of the venue, located in London’s Mayfair district. The material for this project is a custom blend of Jesmonite AC730 Portland Stone finished with an acid-etch to give an even surface that looks and feels like natural stone. Each component of the balustrade will be assembled before installation on-site.

See the finished project here.

What is Jesmonite AC730?

Jesmonite AC730 is a rapid setting acrylic modified cementitious composite. The product is primarily designed for glass reinforced, lightweight, hand laminated decorative applications, such as balustrades, internal wall and ceiling enrichments, and can also be used externally on buildings and in gardens. See our Jesmonite Mouldings page for more information on the full range of products, finishes and applications.
