Advantages of Installing Glass Balustrades

by Jamie Dawson Marketing Manager
In today’s world, glass balustrades are commonly used in several buildings internally as well as externally to support staircases, balconies, and many more places for security and safety purposes. 

When it comes to a balustrade, the frameless glass balustrades are well-known in modern architecture and interior designs. 

So, here are some benefits of having glass balustrades for your home. 

The illusion of more space

Glass elements are very popular in home design and that is one of the main reason to get frameless glass balustrades because it helps in creating the illusion of more space in the building. This is great especially when you are out of space and you cannot achieve anything like this while using metal, chrome or iron balustrades.

Alike glass shower screen, glass balustrades let you enjoy a transparent border while creating an open, fresh and even more expansive atmosphere.

Ideal for contemporary interiors

Another great benefit of glass balustrades is that it adds a touch of modern sophistication to any house that it is fitted in. Glass balustrades will also help you in boosting value for your home when you want to sell it. That is because such beautification attracts various buyers in the market. 

Will let the light pass easily

As the balustrades are made of glass, it will let the light rays pass through. Moreover, glass railings also allow for the light to shine, enhancing the presence of sunlight and allowing a more open and airy feel. 

While a glass balustrade installed inline to windows will create a very modern and almost elegant interior, as natural light is allowed to flow freely within the space, unlike other railings and borders that block light.

Easy to clean

Apart from looking stunningly beautiful, glass balustrades are easy to clean as well. All you need is a commercial glass cleaning product along with a lint-free cloth and voila! Your glass balustrades shine like new! Although, if there are some damage and scratches then polishing can restore the glass to its original state which is the biggest benefit when compared to other material balustrades.

Glass is strong and durable

Another great advantage of glass balustrades is that they are extremely durable and strong. Your new installation requires only a little to no maintenance and also lasts for years.

Most people think that glass is very delicate but the truth is that it is very durable construction material. In fact, it is very strong than wood, which is prone to pest infestation or corrosion after years. Over time, the glass will remain the same as it ages slowly and it is almost not noticeable with naked eyes. The excellent durability of glass makes it well worth your investment as it will last for a lifetime.

Complements with other materials

Glass balustrades just provide the right type of design versatility and the perfect accompaniment to any other materials that are included in the new installation. You can use wood, metal, or stone for the risers, handrails and banisters, and adding sizeable expanses of glass will match with the overall look. Moreover, you can also use an opaque or patterned glass with different colours, textures, and framing options.

Safe and secure

With the help of technology, today you can get a durable and safe glass. In fact, glass balustrades are made from thick tempered glass which rarely breaks. It can take extreme structural pressure to break today’s balustrades and are often referred to as strong as steel. Even the tempered glass breaks, the pieces are not sharp, making glass the best choice for any area, even in homes where children may be present.
