What types of glass balustrade are there?
When glass is part of the structure of the balustrade wall or railing, and not just inserted as a panel, it is referred to as a glass balustrade. This glass balustrade is highly versatile and can be used for many different purposes.
Whether you’re planning on renovating an interior or exterior part of your property, glass balustrading can provide much-needed functionality combined with spectacular visuals and flexible design potential.

The benefits of a glass balustrade
The advantages of using a glass balustrade are numerous:
Glass balustrades let light in, whether that is a balcony on the the side of your home letting more light into a room or on staircase and landing to let the light reflect and turn them into a feature. Letting more light into the home is good for wellbeing and makes the home appear more spacious. If there is an area of your garden or perhaps pool area where you want to receive more sunlight and less shade, a glass balustrade is perfect.
There is no doubt that glass balustrades ooze style and elegance. They are particularly appreciated when there is a panoramic view that can be seen without any barrier.
The toughened glass used for balustrades won’t rot like wood and remains in good condition throughout all weathers. If your property has a balcony by the sea, the glass won’t corrode like other materials would.
- Easy installation
If you have renovated your home or you are extending it then you will be tired of waiting on various parts of the project. In comparison, glass balustrades are easy to install and won’t be problematic.
Toughened glass rarely breaks, and if it did, it would crumble into tiny chunks with no sharp shards of glass. If the glass balustrades are around your pool area you will be able to keep children and pets out and safe - they won’t be able to climb over.
For extra added safety we reinforce the toughened glass balustrades with double layer using lamination technique.
- Easy maintenance
With use of modern nanotechnology we have created a special clear, invisible glass coating that prevents any molecules of limescale, dirt, moss, fungus or grease to stick to the surface. This makes any glass almost maintenance free as well as making the glass inhospitable to germs and bacteria.
A quick polish and the glass balustrade will look as good as the day you bought it.
