In this post we discuss 3 things you should keep in view while ordering a custom glass balustrade; this will help you get the kind of installation you want.
Things to Consider
#1 Specifications Matter
Our specialised glass and stainless steel balustrades are suitable for indoor and outdoor applications and it’s why there are many different specifications to choose from. The basic questions you should be asking yourself are:
- Where are you going to install the balustrade?
- Do you want a handrail?
- Do you prefer a framed, semi-framed or frameless installation?
- If it’s going to be in the open, do you need to install extra weather-proofing?
You need to carefully consider what is vital to you in the balustrade system. It’s best to create a list and discuss your requirements with our experts. They will keep all your requirements in view and provide solutions.
#2 The Style Quotient
While aspects such as functionality and durability are important, every property owner also wants to make sure that the glass balustrade they get installed, is aesthetically appealing and that it complements the appearance of the other features and décor on their property. And as mentioned earlier, there are various things to consider – whether you want a framed or frameless installation and the kind of glass and handrails you want to use.
There are many different glass finishes to choose from and various hardware options too. It’s why you should look at all the different materials and then decide what looks good in the setting you are going to place it in. We provide customised options based on your specific needs and can customize everything from the styling of the glass to the glazing, post, frames etc. There are a number of things to take into consideration.
