Are Glass Railings Right for You?

Glass Railings

Are you curious about how glass railings might work for your property? Thinking of a glass barrier for your deck, patio, pool, walkway or stairwell (interior or exterior)? Glass railings are hard-working, durable and beautiful. Their contemporary design makes them popular with many businesses and homeowners. They can be used on the exterior or interior of your space; on your walkway or stairwell or as a barrier for your deck, patio and/or pool.  The following are some of the benefits of glass railings/barriers that just might convince you to give them a try! 

What are the benefits of glass railings?

  • Open up a room: Wooden and metal railings are bulky, decreasing visibility and blocking sunlight. Glass railings/barriers offer a modern design feel that allows natural light to pour in and makes your space feel open. 
  • Increase visibility: Does your deck, veranda or patio face a marvellous view? Preserve the panorama, unobstructed, with a framed or frameless glass railing. The tempered glass panels used for railings are virtually invisible providing a seamless flow between your property and the landscape.
  • Promote health: Natural light enhances mood and motivation and helps create a healthy environment. Glass barriers let the natural light in!
  • Increase aesthetic appeal: Glass railings offer a sleek, elegant design that is highly appealing. They’re timeless, subtle and subdued allowing them to blend with many styles. 
  • Enjoy low maintenance:  No more sanding, staining and polishing! Glass barriers require only a little soap and water. 
  • Get great durability: Glass railings are impervious to sun and rain. Glass does not corrode with exposure to water, crack due to extreme temperatures or change colour when exposed to sunlight. It does not warp and is not susceptible to rot. Glass is extremely durable and will look great for a long period of time. 
  • Customize: Choose framed or frameless railings. Design the glass barrier to exactly fit your space. Choose the size, shape and transparency. Open up a room or choose a little privacy. There are many options!
  • Compliment other materials: The clean aesthetic of glass makes it easy to pair with stainless steel, aluminum, wood, marble, granite and natural materials.
  • Improve market value: Glass railings/barriers are a sophisticated enhancement optimizing the selling potential of any property. 
  • Environmentally friendly: Are you concerned about your carbon footprint? Glass is one of the most environmentally friendly options available. It doesn’t require deforestation or mining. It’s 100% recyclable and chemically inert.
  • A design statement: Glass railings bring a refined, sophisticated look to any staircase/deck/patio/pool. They contribute to a bright and airy feel and boost the design of your home. 
  • Easy to install: Glass railings are easier to install than most other materials, offering easy, quick installation compared to iron, wood, or steel varieties.
  • Provide protection: Glass railings/barriers protect against wind and accidental falls while standing up to extreme weather. They can be used as pool safety fencing, enhancing the security of your swimming pool.
