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.
