Glass Balustrade – Various Applications and Benefits

Balustrades are a vital element in many commercial premises and homes. Originally designed as safety barriers to demarcate areas or separate levels in a property, glass balustrading is as much about aesthetics as it is about practicality.

With a variety of designs, patterns, colours, and designs available, these features can be customised to complement your interiors and décor. Regardless of whether you want a stylish design statement or a seamless subtle finish, we have the solutions you need.

The applications

The beauty of these features lies in the fact that they are perfect for all types of settings. Whether you are building a new home or commercial structure or are upgrading an existing one, frameless glass railings will fit right in. Glass balustrades can be used in a range of applications such as:

#1 Staircases

Most modern properties are built on a contemporary design style and the overall structure and finish of glass balustrades complements this very well, allowing natural light to fill the spaces for a stylish and bright look. Glass balustrades enhance the appeal of materials like wood, metal, terrazzo, natural stone, tiles, carpeting and more.

#2 Landings and balconies

Whether you want an external balcony or internal landings, balustrades are an essential safety feature. But glass balustrading allows an unobstructed view of your surroundings.

Mezzanine levels in commercial properties, or lofts in homes can benefit from glass balustrades. They allow light to filter into the spaces below, creating a sense of expansiveness and openness.

In outdoor areas, small glass balustrades can separate a garden area from terraces. They can also be installed to create guided walkways, whilst adding a contemporary appeal to the area. We have also handled a significant number of glass balustrade installation projects for decking and patios on both, commercial and residential properties.
