5 Reasons Why a Glass Balustrade is a Great Addition to Your Rooftop Restaurant

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.

#3 Versatile

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.

#4 Safety

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.

glass balustrade balcony

How A Glass Balustrade Balcony Looks Fantastic in Classic and Contemporary-Style Structures

Balconies add character, floor space and value to any residential structure, be it an individual house or apartment building; and there is a premium on residential properties that have these features. Balconies have now become an increasingly popular element in most new city apartments as well as modern-styled houses by lending that modernistic touch.

Whether they are walk-on cantilever balcony structures or Juliet balconies, these are fast becoming a key design aspect of the structure’s external architecture. As an integral component of the façade, these functional and aesthetic features need to be planned and designed well using the right kind of materials. This helps enhance the appeal of the overall structure, and increases the resale price of the property down the line.

Glass balustrade systems

The choice of balcony type is crucial in your home’s appearance. If you choose the right types of balconies and balustrades, they’ll eventually pay for themselves in added-value. On the contrary, if you get it wrong, that will mar the appearance and value of your home.

Let’s take a look at some balcony and glass balustrade systems you can consider including the construction plans for your new build. Glass is an extremely versatile material and you can also add these systems to an existing structure as part of a home improvement project:

Juliet balcony

This isn’t a full balcony structure and is essentially a specialised balustrade protecting a full-height window or French doors on the upper floor of a structure. This feature can be added at any time to your home and it’s an excellent way of opening up the view from the room it’s installed in. A Juliet balcony is a great option in settings where it isn’t feasible to install a step-out or projecting balcony.

Integrated/built-in balcony

These are open spaces that lead out from the rooms in the house or apartment and are set into the building’s façade. They also have a balustrade structure protecting the open face. Since these balconies are set into the building’s structure, adding a frameless glass balustrade is the ideal way to add an element of openness and spaciousness to the balcony.

Projecting balcony

In this feature, you are can step out onto a projected platform protected by a balustrade along its perimeter. A projecting balcony can either be a conventional self-supporting style or cantilevered out from the face of the building.

Custom glass balustrade solutions

Many homeowners find they are strapped for time and so tend to defer their home improvement projects. This is where offsite manufactured glass balustrade features become the perfect solution. The complete balustrade is manufactured in a factory ready to be fitted & installed on site. This reduces the amount of disruption on site and the work is completed within the shortest possible time.

These customised solutions become a great for your home as they are specifically designed for you. This means you get to choose every aspect of the feature such as the design, type and thickness of glass, finishing on the glass panels, type of hardware and railings etc.

Why opt for a glass balustrade?

As well as ensuring the safety of people using the balcony, a balustrade plays a vital aesthetic role. Glass is now widely used for balcony and other balustrades as it offers the perfect balance of safety, visibility and light, whilst being a very low-maintenance option. You can choose from glass varieties such as tinted and self-cleaning.

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.

frameless glass balustrade for patios

Why Frameless Glass balustrading Is an Excellent Option for your Patio

A patio is one of the most popular yard features on residential properties. It’s the perfect spot to unwind and relax in the company of family and friends and it becomes an ideal place for entertaining guests. Some homeowners also like to get an outdoor kitchen installed on their patio and this adds to the functionality of the feature. It’s common for people to get half-height walls or balustrades installed along the periphery of their patio; this adds to its form, helps define and demarcate the space from the rest of the yard.

When you add any solid balustrading system made of materials like concrete, stone, wood or metal, that impedes the view of the landscape when you are sitting on the patio. However, there is a simple way of overcoming this problem and getting the defined and structured look you want for the patio, without compromising either on the view or privacy aspect of it. The simple solution is to get a frameless glass balustrade installed on your patio.

Many people wonder whether glass is a wise choice for this particular application; they feel that it may be too fragile and won’t be able to weather the outdoor elements well. But the fact is that today, technology used in the manufacture of glass for outdoor applications has advanced in a big way. And the glass balustrades that companies like ours design and install, are the perfect solution for indoor as well as outdoor applications. Take a look at why glass balustrades are an excellent choice for your patio space:

#1 Aesthetics and functionality

Every homeowner wants their home spaces to be aesthetically appealing and it’s why they hire professional designers to plan their home and landscape spaces. Glass balustrades look stunning in every setting and complement any landscaping theme. Since your patio is a transition space between the indoor living areas and the yard, it’s important that the materials used here blend in well with both these areas.

Since glass is transparent, it fits in beautifully into all designs concepts and blends in seamlessly with the indoor spaces of your home as well as the outdoor ones. We can provide custom design and plans and this ensures your glass balustrade fits in perfectly with the aesthetic of your home and offers the functionality you need.

#2 Larger glass panels, fewer posts

Even if you opt for semi-framed, mini-post or framed glass balustrades, these features look elegant and have a slim profile. They all provide unhindered views of the surroundings and you can enjoy the beauty of your yard or landscape without having to worry about strong breezes.

#3 The safety aspect

If you have small kids or pets in your home, you are constantly on guard when they are playing out on the patio; after all you don’t want them to wander out into the yard unsupervised. But adding a glass balustrade helps solve this problem too and you can simply add a glass gate at the end of the balustrade to restrict your kids’ access to the yard spaces. Since the glass panels used in the balustrade and gate structure are smooth, they can’t clamber over the balustrade like they can wooden or metal ones. This gives you peace of mind and you are able to let your kids and pets play out on the patio freely.

In addition to all these benefits, glass balustrades are also very low-maintenance, strong and durable. We use laminated, toughened glass in these features which adds to their stability and solidity. For added privacy you can opt for tinted, etched or frosted glass panels.

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 balustrades in your home

4 Different Types of Glass Balustrades For Your Home

Your home is your haven; you make every effort to keep it in good shape and add various features to it or remodel and redecorate it. While it may not always be possible or even necessary to make major upgrades, sometimes even small additions can help create a new look and improve the aesthetics of your property. This is where glass balustrades come into the picture. These features are stunning in every way and are extremely versatile too. In residential spaces, there are a number of different ways in which you can use glass balustrades in your home such as for:

#1 Patios and decks

If you have a raised deck structure in your yard, and want to add some safety to it, a glass balustrade is an excellent installation. This feature can be installed along the periphery of the deck and provides demarcation to the space and the railings provide safety as well. In case you have kids and pets in the home and want to restrict their movement to the yard areas, you can install a frameless glass balustrade along the periphery.

You can add a glass gate at one end of the feature and this provides the safety and security you want in this area. The glass panels are smooth and don’t provide any scope for your kids or pets to clamber over, unlike metal or wooden balustrades that provide many footholds and handholds.

#2 Balconies

Many homes have balconies leading out from bedrooms and other rooms and these give you the opportunity to sit out and enjoy the open air. However, if you have metal, wooden or any other opaque balustrades or railings, they only hinder the view when you are sitting in the balcony or even the adjacent room. The one way to have your cake and eat it too is to get glass balustrade installed.

This feature can be custom-designed to fit the shape of the balcony perfectly and it won’t hamper the view. In fact, it will bring in more natural light into the room as well. If you don’t have a standard balcony, you can choose to get a Juliet balcony installed against the exterior of your bedroom windows.

#3 Terraces and rooftop gardens

If you have a terrace extending out of any storey of your home or even a rooftop garden, you would want to make sure the space is safe for use and a glass balustrade will provide safety. You can use this as an entertainment or relaxation spot and would be able to enjoy the view without any obstacles. Metal and timber balustrading looks good but blocks the view and that impacts the manner in which this area can be used.

#4 Staircases

If your home has an internal staircase, the one way to add to its stability and safety is to install a balustrade along its length. Some homes also have internal landings that open out onto a common high-ceiling living space within the home. These landings would need safety features along their edges, and glass balustrades suit these purposes very well.

We can custom-build a balustrade for you and this installation will blend in seamlessly with design and styling of the staircase and the rest of your home décor. In fact, you can choose from bevelled or stained and etched glass to create the look you want. A glass balustrade made of glass opens up the indoor spaces as it’s transparent and doesn’t block the view.

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 balustrades

Transform the Look Of Your Home or Commercial Building With Glass Balustrades

If you are planning on getting a home renovation done, it’s a great opportunity to get a glass balustrade installed. While this installation process isn’t disruptive or invasive, you can plan it in such a way that it coincides with some other renovation or remodelling work you are planning to carry out in your home. It’s also a good time to think about exactly which spots the balustrading would offer optimal functionality based on your specific requirements.

Create openness and expansiveness in any place

Frameless glass balustrades lend a very elegant and open look to any space and you can add them to great effect in many different indoor and outdoor areas of your property.

In indoor areas you can choose to get this installation for:

  • Staircases and landings
  • Internal atriums
  • Internal balconies and overhangs in central foyers
  • Malls and shopping centres
  • To segregate commercial areas or even create demarcations for pathways

In outdoor spaces you can choose to get this installation for:

  • Staircases
  • Balconies
  • Decks and patios
  • Outdoor kitchens
  • Terraces
  • Rooftop gardens
  • Rooftop or open air restaurants and pubs
  • Juliet balconies
  • Other

Glass balustrades offer function and style

As you can see, there are a large number of settings you can get glass balustrades installed in. The one way to decide where you want to get this feature installed is to understand what its function in that space is. In some instances, it may be built only to demarcate spaces, while in others it may be built to add safety to a structure. For instance, if you install these balustrades along an internal or external staircase it adds to the safety aspect of the feature.

A balcony or elevated deck, terrace or veranda would also need a balustrade to provide support and safety. Many people wonder why they should opt for glass installations and whether it’s really a good idea to install something as fragile as glass. But the fact is that the glass used in these features is very different from glass used in other standard applications.

Depending on the application and setting, you can choose to have glass panels that are between 10-18 mm thick. In commercial spaces where the traffic and wear and tear is significantly higher, it’s better to opt for thicker glass installations. But it isn’t just the thickness that adds to the resilience of the feature. This glass is toughened and laminated which adds to its strength and durability.

Benefits of glass balustrades

There are some other distinct benefits to opting for glass balustrades on your property:

  • They complement the look of any material and blend in with different architectural styles.
  • They open up the view from terraces and balconies and allow you to enjoy the surroundings even when you are seated there.
  • The features allow more natural light to pass through which helps create brighter indoor spaces.
  • Glass balustrading is safer than standard metal or concrete balustrades because the glass panes have smooth and seamless surfaces; which make it impossible for kids or pets to clamber over.
  • These are low-maintenance features that can last for a very long time and retain their appearance.
  • Glass balustrades can be customised to your needs and that means you get a feature that fits in perfectly with the styling and look of your home or commercial establishment.

No matter which way you look at it, glass balustrades are a great addition to your property. We at Quantum Frameless Glass can provide excellent, customised solutions for residential and commercial spaces.

glass balustrades

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.
