Many restaurants have outdoor spaces where they set tables and position sun umbrellas or shade sails. These spaces become the ideal place to enjoy a meal, especially when the weather is good. If you are a hotel or restaurant owner and want to create a comfortable and safe outdoor place for your guests to enjoy a drink or meal, you should consider getting a glass balustrade installation.
These features can be custom-designed for installation in areas such as patios, decks, terraces and balcony spaces. Today, you will find that there are a number of glass balustrading options to choose from and a good supplier would be able to provide customised options that complement the look ambience of the rest of your restaurant, café or club areas. There are a number of ways in which these installations can be used to lend a very attractive look to the open areas of your restaurant; here are a few ideas:
#1 For patios and decks
If you have a large open elevated space that’s part of your restaurant, you should consider installing a glass balustrade all along the periphery. Since these are largely glass installations, they blend in well with all types of settings. Regardless of whether you have a classic-styled restaurant or one that’s designed on a more modernistic style, a glass balustrade will fit right in. You have the option to choose between a framed, semi-framed or frameless feature.
#2 For terraced garden areas
Many restaurants have terraced areas, some with more than one level. This type of setting provides the perfect opportunity to get a glass balustrade installed. You can get frameless glass balustrade installations fitted along the edge of each level. Not only does this act as a safety railing, but helps demarcate the area, and lends a more orderly and neat look to the outdoor spaces.
In fact, if you have smoking and non-smoking zones in your restaurant, you should consider getting a glass balustrade to divide these spots. For added privacy you can choose to get a tinted or frosted glass installation. Alternatively, you can consider placing large potted palms or other hedge type plants along the periphery. Not only will this add some greenery and freshness to the space, but will increase the functionality of the available space.
#3 Outdoor staircases
If your restaurant has an elevated deck leading out from the indoor dining areas, you may have stairs leading down from the decking. From a safety perspective, it’s important to have a glass balustrade built along the stairs. This installation can be straight or curved and can be custom designed to fit the staircase installation.
The styling of the glass balustrade will have to be in sync with the look of the other features in your restaurant. We take care to install high-grade railings and balustrades, using 12-18mm thick glass panels; in fact, if there is a lot of traffic here, we may also recommend the use of glass that’s up to 22 mm in thickness.
We are extremely focused on maintaining high quality standards and make sure that all the installations are in line with Australian Standards. We work closely with you to understand what your specific requirements are, and then provide solutions that match your requirement and fit into your budget. Regardless of which way you look at it, your restaurant will get a very stunning look with a glass balustrade installation.
