Today, restaurant owners look for ways and means of adding to the aesthetics of their establishments. Competition is fierce in this industry and staying on top of the game is about making sure that your restaurant offers good quality, delectable fare in fantastic settings. To this end, property owners make every effort to add some unique features to their restaurant spaces like a glass balustrade.
This is where frameless glass balustrades come in. These installations are a value-add to any structure, complement the look of different types of architecture and décor and look stunning in all type of settings. If you have a rooftop space in your restaurant or even if your entire restaurant is situated in a rooftop space, you should consider getting a glass balustrade installed on the stairways leading up to this space and along the periphery of the rooftop restaurant.
Modern day architects constantly strive to achieve the perfect balance between functionality, aesthetics and cost-effectiveness in the projects they handle for their customers. There are a number of reasons why glass balustrades are an excellent addition to your rooftop restaurant:
#1 Unobstructed views
The primary objective of opening up a rooftop restaurant is to create a unique setting so you can provide your customers an exceptional dining experience. And the one way to do that is to ensure that the guests have unobstructed views of the city even when they are seated at their tables and enjoying a meal. When you install frameless glass balustrades, you are able to achieve just that. Since glass is transparent it offers unobstructed views of the surroundings which can dramatically improve your customers’ dining experience.
#2 Openness and spaciousness
Glass allows light to filter through and since it has a clear appearance, it enhances the illusion of spaciousness and openness and that is one of the main attraction points for people that visit a rooftop restaurant. When you install glass balustrades along your rooftop restaurant space, it creates a unique and expansive look and helps maximise the available surface area too.
Glass is a highly versatile material that lends itself beautifully to any type of setting and interior design style. Regardless of the styling of your restaurant you can be sure that the glass balustrade feature won’t stand out like a sore thumb there.
The glass panels are fitted expertly along the floor and anchored to posts and walls that exist in that space. This makes the feature extremely durable and safe. Unlike metal and wooden balustrades, glass features don’t need to have any gaps in them. The smooth sheets of glass add to the safety aspect of the installation and kids won’t be able to clamber over or squeeze through any gaps. This enhances the safety factor of these features and makes your restaurant child-friendly as well (if that’s your requirement).
#5 Durable and weather-resistant
People often wonder about the durability aspect of glass balustrading; but the fact is that these installations are built using thick, toughened and laminated glass panels that are able to withstand minor impacts and take loads very well. Rooftop restaurant spaces are largely open to the air and all the installations and features are exposed to the elements.
This makes it crucial to use materials that will be able to endure temperature changes and climatic changes and be resistant to moisture, rain, dust etc. In this respect too, glass is a winner and it’s a great material for outdoor applications and its maintenance is very easy as well.
