Tips to Use Custom Glass Balustrades to Create Private Spaces

Glass balustrade installations are a growing trend and many property owners now choose to get this installation for their homes and commercial spaces. Adding a custom glass balustrade to your deck, patio, poolscape, balcony, terrace or veranda is a great way to create a unique look on your property.

It’s also the one way in which you can get the safety you need, without marring the look of the structure, or blocking the view. In fact, if you get frosted glass panels for these balustrades, you can easily create private spaces that are discreetly tucked out of view. This is a great advantage if you live in a locality that has other homes in close vicinity.

These balustrades can be built to your requirements and we ensure that the design complements the look of your home structure. As mentioned earlier, these balustrades provide you the functionality and safety you need, without compromising on the aesthetics.

Types of glass balustrades

If you are considering getting glass balustrade installations, you will find there are a number of options to choose from such as:

Framed balustrade

This is a very sturdy structure that is made of multiple glass panels with framing on all sides. This type of installation is ideal for high traffic areas and we use thick gauge stainless steel hardware and framing in the feature.

Semi-framed

If you prefer a more open look but don’t want to take any chances with stability and sturdiness, you can opt for a semi-framed installation. This installation is sleeker than the framed feature and can be customised to your requirement.

Frameless

This is a very popular option and many people are now opting for it. A frameless balustrade fits in beautifully into any setting which makes it a very versatile feature. It is also a little more expensive than the other two options, but is a low maintenance installation that provides an unhindered view of the outdoor areas of your property and the scenery outside.

Regardless of the option you choose, you want to be sure that the installation is sturdy and strong and that it is able to weather the climatic conditions that exist in your area. This also means using the right kind of glass. There are glass panels of different thicknesses and you can pick that based on the application the balustrade is going to be used in.

Where can you install glass balustrades?

We will provide you all the information you need and show you samples of the different types of glass that can be used for your specific requirement. If you want more privacy on your patio, you can use framed installations with opaque glass panels. These installations are ideal for:

Patios

This shades the space in a very effective manner and provides you privacy as you entertain guests and relax or dine outdoors.

Balcony

A balcony is an ideal spot to relax at the end of a busy work day. But if this feature faces another house, you can’t use it in an optimal manner. We can install frosted/opaque/tinted glass balustrade that are designed so you can enjoy these spaces without worrying about being seen.

Indoor lofts

Some homes have indoor lofts that are part of a larger room. Installing a glass balustrade using opaque glass is a great way to get the privacy you need without compromising on the light and ventilation aspects.
