Design Aspects to Consider While Choosing a Frameless Glass Balustrade

Regardless of whether you are upgrading just one section of your home or are getting a complete remodeling done, it’s a good idea to consider getting balustrades installed. Aside from the fact that they meet the required building regulations, a well-planned, custom designed balustrade can become the focal point of an indoor or outdoor setting.

When you opt for a glass balustrade from Quantum Frameless Glass, you can rest assured that we will provide you with all the information you need about the different types of products available and what their pros and cons are. Depending on your specific requirement, and preference, you can choose from fully-framed, semi-framed or frameless glass balustrades. However, it’s also a good idea to have some basic idea about the design aspects to consider when choosing a frameless glass balustrade. Here are some useful pointers:

#1 The available space

This is a very important aspect that needs to be taken into consideration. While your preferences are important, when it comes to choosing a balustrade, the feature should also fit in perfectly with the setting it is going to be installed in. For example:

  • If the balustrade is going to be in an outdoor location the materials need to be weather-resistant and should be able to endure the elements.
  • If you live in a coastal area there are some additional considerations that need to be kept in view.
  • If the balustrade is going to be installed in a very narrow space like a staircase or a small balcony, extra care will have to be taken to design a feature with a thinner profile.
  • If the feature is to be installed in an area that sees a lot of traffic, the glass panels would have to be thicker to ensure they don’t crack on impact etc.

#2 Aesthetics

While the functional aspect of your balustrade is extremely important, it is also important to ensure that the aesthetics of the feature complements the rest of the installations in the immediate environment. One of the major advantages of opting for a glass balustrade is that the material is not intrusive. It blends in perfectly with all types of architecture and décor styles, making it an extremely versatile option.

For instance, a glass balustrade will look as amazing in a traditional Victorian style villa as it does in a more modernistic designed structure. Frameless glass balustrades are stunning in every way. They allow the entry of natural light into the indoor spaces and are ideal for contemporary design spaces as well.

#3 Customisation

We can customize the design of your glass balustrades based on your specific styling requirements. Our expert designers will have detailed discussions with you and provide you with all the information that you need about these features and what their pros and cons are. This will help you make a good choice about whether you want a framed, semi-framed or frameless feature.

No matter which way you look at it, glass balustrades are an excellent addition to residential as well as gouache and settings
