glass balustrades for commercial or leisure settings

Why Glass Balustrades Are an Excellent Choice For Commercial Or Leisure Settings

Competition is very high in every modern day industry and business; staying on top of the game is a lot about ensuring that you provide your clients and customers the best services and products and that your premises are well-planned and designed using safe, attractive and functional installations.

The ambience of your commercial space can impact the amount of foot traffic you get and it’s always a good idea to ensure that every area of your property is well lit, open and spacious. This helps make the spaces more inviting and people will be more encouraged to stay there and patronise your business. With this aspect in view, frameless glass balustrades are an excellent installation and can complement the look of any commercial or leisure setting such as:

  • Shopping malls
  • Office buildings
  • Retail outlets
  • Spas and salons
  • Bars and cafes that have alfresco areas
  • Rooftop swimming pools in hotels
  • Restaurants with patio and deck dining spaces
  • Other

Glass balustrade installations can go a long way in turning even the most simple interior design concepts into something unique and stunning. You can choose from framed, semi-framed and frameless glass installations, based on the décor and theme, the other installations and features, as well as your personal preferences and budget.

Different Types of Glass Balustrade Installations

Since these balustrades are custom-designed for you, they will fit in perfectly into the space they are meant to be installed in. Here are some of the settings they are ideal for:


If your café has a curved terrazzo space specifically for smokers, we can install curved glass balustrading there. The installation will be of the right height so as to provide safety to your customers.


If your hotel is located in an area with a fantastic view, you want to ensure that your guests be able to enjoy the view. In this case, you can install frameless glass balustrade in guest room balcony spaces, on patio and deck dining areas as well as along the periphery of poolscapes.

Shopping Malls

These commercial establishments see a significant amount of foot traffic and it means the staircases and every level needs to have sturdy and robust railings. Most malls and large shopping centres now opt for glass balustrade installations because these are strong, and provide the segregation required, without hampering the view.

The clear glass allows a lot of natural and artificial light to pass through and this helps make the place look more cheery and bright. This kind of a lively and bright atmosphere enhances the shopping experience and helps showcase the display windows of the different stores in that mall.

Office Buildings

Today, the interior spaces of most office buildings are designed on an open floor plan. This concept is very popular and it adds to the spaciousness of even a modestly-sized office. Glass lends itself beautifully to this concept and it can be used along internal balcony and mezzanine spaces, along staircases as well as in outdoor balcony and terrace areas.

Why Opt For Glass Balustrades?

An enclosed space with concrete, metal or wood railings will only end up making the space look smaller than it really is. Since these materials are opaque, they don’t allow light to pass through and this makes the areas look darker and feel more claustrophobic too.

In comparison, glass is a versatile material and lends itself very well with different settings and complements the look of different architectural and interior design styles. You also have the option to add tinted glass, frosted or etched glass panels instead of completely clear ones. This will add to the uniqueness of the structure as well.
