How Glass Balustrades are Value-Add To Your Home

If you are looking for a unique and simple way of adding value to your home with some home improvement upgrades, you should consider getting glass balustrades installed. These are a very versatile installation that fits in beautifully with interior as well as landscape design concepts. These features transform the look of your home while also adding to the functionality of the existing spaces. If you plan to sell your home sometime in the future, you will find that glass balustrading adds to the sale value of your home.

Why are balustrades so beneficial?

Glass balustrades can be incorporated into the indoor and outdoor areas of your home in a number of different ways:

#1 Create relaxation areas

You can use glass balustrades to demarcate spaces in your landscape for relaxation and entertainment. For instance, you can add a glass balustrade to the pool space; this adds to the beauty and safety of the space. Adding a custom-designed balustrade to your patio or deck also makes the feature safer. All you have to do is add a gate to the installation to turn your deck or patio into a safe place for your kids or pets to play in.

#2 Improve the privacy of your property

Some people wonder how glass balustrading can provide them privacy in their garden spaces and they rarely consider this as an option to demarcate their property’s boundary. But the fact is you can choose from a range of glass varieties based on the level of privacy you desire.

#3 Build outdoor kitchen walls

Many people like to get an outdoor kitchen installed in their yard, but feel that solid brick and concrete walls just block the view of the landscape and surrounding areas and make the space look smaller than it actually is. The simplest solution is to add a glass balustrade along the periphery of the outdoor kitchen. This will create the division you need to install seating features without hampering the view of the yard. A glass balustrade always adds to the openness and spaciousness of the yard.

#4 Balcony features

While many homeowners like the idea of having balconies leading out of their bedrooms and overlooking their gardens and yards, they also feel that adding concrete, wooden or aluminium railings makes the space look claustrophobic. In fact, it also acts like a barrier and prevents them from taking in the beauty of these outdoor spaces or the surrounding scenery.

However, when you get a frameless glass balustrade installed, you will have a safe railing feature; since it’s made of glass, it won’t block your view. If you feel you want some privacy in the balcony, without compromising on the openness factor, you should get tinted or frosted glass panels. If you want to add a Juliet balcony to a full length window in your bedroom, adding a glass feature is a great option. The glass will allow more natural light to filter through than an opaque metal or wooden balcony.

The benefits of glass balustrades

There really are a number of benefits to getting a glass balustrade installed in your home:

  • Glass reflects light and these installations are an excellent option for balconies as they will add to the cheeriness and brightness of the indoor spaces.
  • The glass panel of these frameless balustrading systems allow you to enjoy the beauty of your landscape or the surrounding view even as you relax on your patio or deck.
  • This feature complements the look of more traditional as well as contemporary-styled homes.
  • It adds to the aesthetics and functionality of your home.

glass balustrades for flat roof

Turn Your Flat Roof Into The Perfect Relaxation Spot With Glass Balustrades

Many homes don’t have very large outdoor spaces and homeowners feel that this restricts their privacy as they can’t use these spaces in the manner they would like to. While this can sometimes be a hurdle to creating private outdoor spaces where you can relax and entertain friends, there are some solutions that can give you the space you need as well as the privacy you desire.

If you have a flat roof or even if a portion of the roof structure of your home is flat, you can use glass balustrading to turn that area into a private relaxation spot. This can help you enjoy the outdoor air without compromising on privacy. A rooftop space is an out-of-the-box solution that you should consider if the structure of your home allows it. If you want, the same concept can be carried through to large balcony spaces as well.

Types of glass balustrades

Today there are a number of balustrading options to choose from and frameless glass balustrades are an excellent option for adding a new dimension to the existing structure, without impacting the look of the latter in any way. You also have the option to get a framed or semi-framed balustrade installation for your contemporary rooftop space.

If you plan this space well, you would be able to use it to relax, sun-bathe, or spend time with family or friends. When it comes to the privacy aspect, you have the option to choose between frosted or tinted glass. This can create the prefect privacy screen while you relax in your rooftop alfresco space.

Perfect for residential and commercial settings

This type of a feature is an excellent addition to residential properties. But it fits in perfectly in commercial settings as well. If you have a bar or restaurant with a terrace space, you should consider getting glass balustrades installed along the periphery of the terrace. This area can become a great outdoor space where your guests can enjoy dining or having a drink under the open skies.

If you want this space to be more usable in the daytime, you should consider getting large garden umbrellas installed; this allows you to use the terrace garden in a more optimal manner. As mentioned earlier, you have the option to choose the type of glass you want. Apart from the tinted and frosted glass panel options, you also have the option to choose the thickness of the glass.

We typically use glass panels that are 12mm and above in thickness. The thickness of the glass we recommend will be dependent on the amount of wear and tear the space is going to see. For instance, the glass panels installed in a frameless rooftop balustrade in a commercial setting would be much thicker than panels installed in a residential setting.

Customised balustrade design

Since we will be custom designing the installation, you can rest assured that it will fit perfectly in the space it has been made for. We use top quality glass, framing and hardware in the work and experienced and expert technicians ensure the structure is built to Australian Building Standards.

We work very closely with you to understand what your specific requirements are and ensure the structure is right in line with your preferences and budget. If you like, we can also build complementing glass balustrades for other outdoor spaces on your property. Glass balustrading lends a very stunning look to your property and blends in seamlessly with the architectural elements of your home and the features in the landscaping.

We at Quantum Frameless Glass can provide excellent, customised solutions for residential and commercial spaces. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248. You can also contact us using this online form.

glass balustrade applications

Which Spaces Can Glass Balustrades Be Used In?

When you are considering any railing and balustrade options, you have to take into consideration the design and décor of the space, the setting and the amount of traffic the space sees. Aside from this, you also have to keep your preferences and budget in view. People are increasingly opting for glass balustrades for their commercial and industrial properties and there are a number of areas where you can use these installations, such as:

#1 Staircases

Glass balustrades are ideal for indoor and outdoor staircases and complement the look of any interior design style and exterior architecture of the building. They look great in traditionally designed structures and enhance the aesthetics of modernistic styled buildings as well. This is why it’s common to see glass balustrades in almost every mall and shopping centre or retail and office building. They are a great option for residential settings too and provide the necessary support and safety. If you have curved or winding staircases, you can opt for special customised designs and a well-established company would be able to provide you the options you need.

#2 Balconies and Terraces

If you have these features in your home or commercial structure, you need to ensure they are secure and that the area is safe for use. Glass balustrades are a great option for terraces and balconies and the glass provides a number of benefits. The glass adds to the expansiveness of the balcony or terrace and makes even a modest sized one look bigger. It allows light to filter through into the internal spaces (in the case of a balcony installation), and they don’t block the view. They look great in any kind of structure. If you have kids and pets in your house, the glass panels in this installations provide safety as they can’t clamber over these structures like they would over wooden or metal ones.

#3 Patios and Decks

Many people like to have a safety railing along the periphery of their patio or deck installations. Glass balustrades are ideal for raised decking and you can get these custom built to your specifications. They are a good option for patio and outdoor kitchen spaces as well. You can get a balustrade installed and have a glass gate fitted. This makes the space more secure and your kids and pets won’t be able to wander into the yard when they are there.

#4 Gardens and Yards

There are times when you want to demarcate the different spaces in your garden or yard, but don’t necessarily want to build walls made of brick and concrete. Wooden and aluminium balustrades also block the view and glass becomes an excellent option in these settings. These installations can be frameless and they help showcase the landscape and its elements in a very effective manner.

As you can see, there are a number of different settings you can install glass balustrades in. You can choose between frameless, semi-frameless and framed installations and can also have your choice of glass fitted. A good company will always provide you design and styling options based on your specific need and will ensure that the best materials and workmanship are used in the work.

When you are getting any type of glass balustrades installed, it’s important that you discuss your requirements with the experts at Quantum Frameless Glass. We will provide excellent, customised solutions for residential and commercial spaces. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248.

custom glass balustrade

Why You Should Opt For a Custom Glass Balustrade

Today, homeowners are very particular about the appearance of their homes. When they build new structures they want to ensure that the indoor spaces have a good amount of natural sunlight and air; with this in view, they get their builders to design wide balconies, patios and decks.

When there are indoor or outdoor stairs, they want these features to be designed elegantly. While functionality is still a priority, a lot of weightage is given to aesthetics too. This is where glass balustrades come into the picture. These features look great in any type of setting and complement the look of different types of architectural and interior design styles.

There are a number of varieties to choose from such as framed, semi-framed and frameless glass balustrades, and you also have the option to decide what kind of glass you want, based on the location of the balustrade, the setting and the level of privacy required. Every home has a certain style and balcony, terraces, stairs, patios and decks could all be of different shapes and sizes too.

The Advantages

This means, if you are getting a glass balustrade installed, you would have to opt for a custom designed one. There are a number of benefits to opting for a custom glass balustrade installation, such as:

#1 Functionality

This is one of the most important benefits of a custom feature. When you get a glass balustrade installed, you need it to be functional. This means, it has to serve the purpose it has been built for. For example, if you have kids and pets in your home, you may want the glass balustrade to be of a certain height and may not want very wide gaps between the panels and posts. In a commercial setting, the requirement may be for thicker glass panels as the traffic in these spaces may be more. All of these are custom requirements and a well-established company would be able to provide the solutions you need.

#2 Perfect Fit

As mentioned earlier, every setting is different and some balconies, terraces or stairs may have a specific shape – the balustrade will have to be built in that shape. So, if you have a curved staircase, the glass balustrade will also have to be a curved one. This type of perfect fit can be possible only when you get a custom designed installation.

#3 Aesthetics

As a property owner, you want to ensure that every feature on your property is designed tastefully and that it blends in well with the overall look of your property. Glass balustrades are extremely versatile. The transparency and simplicity of glass makes it perfect for any application and setting. Regardless of whether you have a casual styled home or a formal styled one, a glass balustrade will only enhance the appeal of your home.

#4 Low Maintenance

These glass balustrades can be designed to match your requirements to the tee. If you want a very low-maintenance feature, you can opt for frameless balustrades. These are stunning to look at, and require the least amount of maintenance, since they largely have panels of glass and very little hardware. This means, you get a very low maintenance feature for different areas of your home.

When you are getting glass balustrades installed, it’s important that you discuss your requirements with the experts at Quantum Frameless Glass. We will provide excellent, customised Glass Fencing solutions for residential and commercial spaces. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248.

glass fencing

Why Glass Fencing Works Best Around Water

Glass fencing is the preferred choice in residential and commercial outdoor settings. They can be installed along the periphery of decks and patios, gardens and lawn spaces, outdoor kitchens as well as poolscapes.

Glass is an extremely resilient material that looks elegant, complements the look of any other materials and syncs well with various architectural styles. This is why it has now become the number 1 choice for fencing installations. It’s common to see glass fences around pools, ponds, waterfalls and other water features, and there are some distinct reasons for this:

#1 Safety

Water features on your property add a very fresh and attractive look to the landscape and many people have swimming pools, ponds etc. on their property. While these features are functional and enhance the appearance of your landscape, it’s important to have a security installation like a fence around them. This is even more relevant if you have kids or pets in your home.

While a fence is a necessary feature in these areas, building one made of wood or metal can mar the appearance of your landscape. It’s far better to install semi-framed or frameless glass fencing. This will provide the safety you need, without compromising on the aesthetic factor.

#2 Non-Corrosive

Any fencing in an outdoor location will be exposed to the elements. When it is close to any water body that can cause it to rot or corrode in the manner that wood and metal do. But this isn’t the case with glass fencing. These installations are largely made of glass panels. Depending on whether you have opted for a semi-framed or a frameless installation, there will be some hardware used to fit the fencing to the ground.

A reputed glass fencing company will always use high-grade stainless steel fittings. Neither the glass nor these fittings are prone to rusting or corrosion which makes the installation perfect for poolscapes, or even any coastal locations. This means you will have installations that perform well even in high-chloride and marine environments, which provides you value in the long term.

#3 Aesthetics and Design Flexibility

As mentioned earlier, glass lends itself very well to different design concepts. Since it is transparent, it blends in well with various settings. Regardless of whether you have a formal-styled or casual tropical-style pool on your property, a frameless glass fence will look stunning and enhance the appearance and value of your property. You get the design flexibility to create the look you want, without worrying about whether the material of the fencing will clash with the other materials used in the landscape.

#4 Buffer Against Coastal Winds

If you live in a coastal region, your property will also be very windy. You can install wood or metal fences as breakers but these also hamper the view. It’s much better to install glass fences; They will provide a buffer against strong winds coming in from the sea, without hindering the fantastic view. You will be able to enjoy leisurely moments on your patio or deck even on a particularly windy day.

#5 Privacy

Some homeowners like privacy around their poolscapes. In this case, you can still use glass fencing but can get it glazed or frosted. This effect provides you the privacy you need and the glass structure still looks very elegant and doesn’t look overly solid like a wooden fence or a metal one.

We at Quantum Frameless Glass provide excellent, customised Glass Fencing solutions for residential and commercial spaces. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248. You can also contact us using this online form.

glass juliet balcony

Why Add a Glass Juliet Balcony To Your Bedroom

If you have a compact–sized bedroom space, it’s natural for you to want to create a more open and spacious look in the room. While you can get larger windows installed, it may not always be possible and feasible to do so. Many people like the concept of having balconies leading out from various rooms of their home, but not every structure has them. If you have purchased and existing home, you don’t really have any control over what feature may or may not be there in the home.

In circumstances such as these, people wonder what they can do to make the indoor spaces of their home more airy and bright. The one feature that can solve all these problems and meet your requirements is a Glass Juliet balcony. This feature is unique in a number of ways. It sits almost flush with the exterior walls of your home and acts like a safety railing for a full length window. It’s different from a balcony in that there is no space where you can stand in (as in the case of a regular balcony).

Juliet Balcony – The Benefits

There are a number of reasons why you should opt for a Glass Juliet Balcony installation in your existing or new build; take a look at what these are:

  • A semi-framed or framed glass balcony brings in a lot of natural light into the indoor spaces of your home. This lends a very cheery atmosphere to your property.
  • Brighter indoor spaces help you maintain higher energy levels and put you in a good mood. Many people that get a Glass Juliet Balcony added are pleasantly surprised to see how much of a difference it makes to the appearance of the indoor spaces.
  • A Glass Juliet Balcony may look like a modern structure in terms of its styling; however, it blends in very well with all different types of architectural elements. This is because the structure itself has a very slim and clean profile. If you opt for a frameless or semi-framed feature, it will blend in perfectly with the exterior of your home and won’t stand out like a sore thumb like some new features do.
  • When you add any new installation in your home, you want it to be functional as well as aesthetically appealing. A Glass Juliet Balcony looks stunning and adds to the value of your property as well.
  • Since the feature is made of glass panels, the surface is very smooth. This makes it an ideal installation for homes that have kids and pets. Since the balcony is custom designed for you, you can get one that is higher than a standard railing. Neither your kids not pets will be able to clamber over it like they would over a railing made of wood or metal.
  • The installation is quick and there aren’t too many building rules to follow. This is largely because the feature sits almost flat against the exterior walls of your home; it doesn’t protrude from the outer walls like a regular balcony does.
  • Having a Juliet Balcony outside your bedroom window is a great way to frame the outside view. And so, if you have a great landscape or an excellent view, you would be able to enjoy that too.
  • The Juliet Balcony is largely made of toughened, laminated glass, which makes it a very strong and resilient installation.
  • It’s easy to maintain and will last for a number of years without any trouble.

We at Quantum Frameless Glass provide excellent, customised Glass Juliet Balcony solutions for residential and commercial spaces. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248. You can also contact us using this online form.

glass balustrades for commercial or leisure settings

Why Glass Balustrades Are an Excellent Choice For Commercial Or Leisure Settings

Competition is very high in every modern day industry and business; staying on top of the game is a lot about ensuring that you provide your clients and customers the best services and products and that your premises are well-planned and designed using safe, attractive and functional installations.

The ambience of your commercial space can impact the amount of foot traffic you get and it’s always a good idea to ensure that every area of your property is well lit, open and spacious. This helps make the spaces more inviting and people will be more encouraged to stay there and patronise your business. With this aspect in view, frameless glass balustrades are an excellent installation and can complement the look of any commercial or leisure setting such as:

  • Shopping malls
  • Office buildings
  • Retail outlets
  • Spas and salons
  • Bars and cafes that have alfresco areas
  • Rooftop swimming pools in hotels
  • Restaurants with patio and deck dining spaces
  • Other

Glass balustrade installations can go a long way in turning even the most simple interior design concepts into something unique and stunning. You can choose from framed, semi-framed and frameless glass installations, based on the décor and theme, the other installations and features, as well as your personal preferences and budget.

Different Types of Glass Balustrade Installations

Since these balustrades are custom-designed for you, they will fit in perfectly into the space they are meant to be installed in. Here are some of the settings they are ideal for:

Café

If your café has a curved terrazzo space specifically for smokers, we can install curved glass balustrading there. The installation will be of the right height so as to provide safety to your customers.

Hotel

If your hotel is located in an area with a fantastic view, you want to ensure that your guests be able to enjoy the view. In this case, you can install frameless glass balustrade in guest room balcony spaces, on patio and deck dining areas as well as along the periphery of poolscapes.

Shopping Malls

These commercial establishments see a significant amount of foot traffic and it means the staircases and every level needs to have sturdy and robust railings. Most malls and large shopping centres now opt for glass balustrade installations because these are strong, and provide the segregation required, without hampering the view.

The clear glass allows a lot of natural and artificial light to pass through and this helps make the place look more cheery and bright. This kind of a lively and bright atmosphere enhances the shopping experience and helps showcase the display windows of the different stores in that mall.

Office Buildings

Today, the interior spaces of most office buildings are designed on an open floor plan. This concept is very popular and it adds to the spaciousness of even a modestly-sized office. Glass lends itself beautifully to this concept and it can be used along internal balcony and mezzanine spaces, along staircases as well as in outdoor balcony and terrace areas.

Why Opt For Glass Balustrades?

An enclosed space with concrete, metal or wood railings will only end up making the space look smaller than it really is. Since these materials are opaque, they don’t allow light to pass through and this makes the areas look darker and feel more claustrophobic too.

In comparison, glass is a versatile material and lends itself very well with different settings and complements the look of different architectural and interior design styles. You also have the option to add tinted glass, frosted or etched glass panels instead of completely clear ones. This will add to the uniqueness of the structure as well.

glass railing ideas for your deck

Creative Glass Railing Ideas For Your Deck

Decks add charm and value to your property and they become a perfect relaxation and entertainment space. Most decks are built a certain height and it’s best to install a railing along the periphery of this feature. Not only does it add dimension to the installation, but to its safety as well. Property owners look for simple yet elegant railings that will be easy to maintain and durable too, and this is where glass railings or balustrades come in.

Design Ideas

These features look stunning in any type of setting and complement the look and ambience of traditional as well as contemporary home and residential designs. This means, a glass fence won’t mar the appearance of your existing deck space and there are a number of creative glass railing ideas that you can choose from, such as:

#1 Frameless Glass Balustrade With Connecting Stairs Balustrades

While some decks are hardly a foot high from ground level, others may be at a much greater height. In this case, you would have stairs leading into the yard from the upper level of the deck. It’s never a good idea to keep the edges of either the raised deck or the steps unprotected as that can lead to accidents.

Installing a frameless balustrade along the deck as well as the stairs is a good way to add some form to the structure and improve its safety. In this design, the railing that runs along the stairs is a continuation of the one that protects the deck and it provides a very seamless and clear look.

#2 Glass Balustrade For Multi-Level Deck

Some homes have multi-level decks. These could be built as standalone features around the pool or as an extension of living and bedroom spaces that are at different levels in the structure. This type of decking looks stunning and unique and you can add to their appeal by installing a semi-framed glass balustrade on them. If you prefer a more open look and want a clear view of the surroundings and landscaping, you can choose to get clear glass installations for these features. On the other hand, if you need a certain level of privacy in any of these areas (like the bedroom decks), you can opt for tinted or frosted glass panels. These semi-frameless structures are extremely resilient and will last for a number of years with very basic maintenance.

Glass Balustrades For Pool Decking

Many people like to have decks built around their swimming pools and at times these structures may have multiple levels as well. These installations can also benefit from glass balustrades and railings; they add to the safety of the deck and you don’t have to worry about your kids accidently falling off of the deck while playing or walking around the pool space.

If you also have some sunning areas on the deck near the pool, where you require some privacy, you can opt for acid-stained glass or frosted glass. If you prefer, the same type of glass panels can be used along the periphery of the decks that lead out of the living areas and connect to the multi-levelled pool deck.

Regardless of the type of glass railings, fencing or balustrades you need, we are the experts that can provide you with high-grade, custom solutions that fit in perfectly with your specific requirements. We at Quantum Frameless Glass cater to both residential and commercial customers. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248.

glass balcony balustrades

Glass Balustrading – The Perfect Addition To Your Balcony

Modern structures tend to have larger open spaces as well as open floor plans. The objective is to ensure that these areas get a larger amount of natural light and air. This is also why homeowners choose to get balcony installations leading out of bedroom spaces in their home structure.

One important aspect of any balcony is its balustrade and railing; this safety aspect has to be given due consideration and it has to be engineered well and built with high-grade weather-resistant materials. While you can opt for masonry features or ones made of wood or aluminum, none of them would be able to provide the elegance and sophistication that a glass balustrade provides.

Why Opt For Glass Balcony Balustrades?

There are a number of reasons why glass balustrading is the perfect addition to your balcony, such as:

The Design Aspect

Regardless of the architectural style of your home and the design theme of various features in the indoor and outdoor spaces of your home, a glass balustrade will always blend in. This is a trait that no other material can boast of. Glass is transparent and it’s why a balustrade made of this material can complement the look of any setting. It will add to the beauty of a classic style home as well as a more modern or contemporary structure.

Light & Openness

As mentioned earlier, most people now want their home spaces to look open and be airy and full of natural light. It’s why modern structures have such large glass windows and doors. However, if you build a balustrade made of concrete, natural stone, metal or wood on your balconies that will significantly reduce the amount of light that filters into your bedrooms. In turn this will have a negative impact on the ambience of your home. Getting glass balconies installed is one way of ensuring that as much natural light as possible filters in.

Unhindered Views

When you are sitting in your balcony or even in your bedroom, you want to be able to get an unhindered view of the landscaping or the surrounding views. This won’t be possible if you get balustrades made of traditional materials installed. Only a glass installation will provide you this open and clear view of your surroundings. If you want some privacy without compromising on the open look, you can get frosted glass panels installed. While they too will block the view, they won’t block the light and will still lend an open look to the space.

Safety

Glass may seem like a fragile material and normal glass is. However we use toughened and laminated glass panels in our frameless balustrades; this means you don’t have to worry about whether your safety will be compromised in any way. In our opinion, if you have kids or pets in your home, glass is safer than wood and metal. This is because it has very smooth surfaces, which makes it almost impossible for your children or pets to climb over the railing.

Balcony Balustrade Installation

When we handle glass balcony balustrade installation for your home, you can rest assured that it will be of the highest quality and will meet building codes. Based on the nature of the installation, the setting and your specific requirements, we use glass that’s 15mm-18mm thick, which provides you the safety you need. High-grade hardware, fittings and railings are used in the work and this adds to the integrity, resilience and longevity of the installation.

We at Quantum Frameless Glass provide excellent, customised glass balustrade solutions for residential and commercial spaces. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248. You can also contact us using this online form.

glass fencing for garden and yard spaces

Different Ways in Which Glass Fencing Can Be Used in Garden and Yard Spaces

The garden spaces of your home lend openness and greenery to your property, and it’s why you hire professionals to design and plan these spaces for you. If these areas are demarcated well and the right kind of installations are used in the work, that can add to the beauty and functionality of your yard.

The one common way to segregate garden and yard areas effectively is to build half-height walls along the periphery of outdoor installations such as the swimming pool, the outdoor kitchen, patio, deck etc. You can also install edging along the lawn and flower bed areas to protect them from being accidently trampled upon. The pathways and walkways can also be lined with brick or concrete walls and this ensures that no one will stamp on the plantings and shrubs that line these features.

While all of these are good options, any kind of masonry structure is opaque and very solid in appearance. All these installations would be able to demarcate the required spaces; but they also make the space look smaller and constricted. The one way to circumvent this problem is to get glass fencing installed in the outdoor spaces of your property.

Glass Fences – Different Applications

Glass fences are now becoming the installation of choice on residential as well as commercial properties. Take a look at the different ways in which these features can be incorporated into the design and aesthetic of the landscaped areas of your home:

Swimming Pool

Many homes have swimming pools and it’s important that these installations have the right kind of fencing around them. It’s the best way to prevent accidents from happening and a fence lends a neat look to the space as well. A frameless glass fence with a complementing glass gate will provide the safety and segregation you need without affecting the openness of the yard. In fact, if you have a modestly-sized yard, it will definitely benefit from a glass fence installation.

Outdoor Features

Most homes have features such as a deck, patio or an outdoor kitchen and glass fencing or balustrades can create a distinctive look around these installations. Even when you are sitting in your outdoor kitchen space or on the deck or patio, you would be able to enjoy an unhindered view of the landscape. Adding a gate to the glass fence increases its safety aspect and you can easily let your kids and pets play in this space.

Driveway, Pathways and Walkways

You can also install glass fencing all along the walkways and pathways in your garden. This is an excellent way to prevent anyone from trampling on the plantings and lawn spaces. When glass is used to demarcate these spaces, it doesn’t impact the design and theme of the yard or garden, as it is transparent, unlike masonry features that are made of stone, concrete and brick.

Fireplace and Fire Pit Areas

Many homes have standalone fireplace and fire pit installations. You can create cosy nooks anywhere in your yard for these features, by installing glass fencing around these elements.

As you can see, glass fencing can be used in a number of ways in your garden and yard areas. We will work closely with you to understand what your requirements are, and then provide features that work best for you.

We at Quantum Frameless Glass provide excellent, customised glass fencing solutions for residential and commercial spaces. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248. You can also contact us using this online form.
