The Benefits Of Glass Railings
Whether we’re talking balconies or staircases, whether inside or outside your house, glass railings are a sleek and aesthetically pleasing option.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of choosing a glass railing installation for your home.
Preserve The View
The most obvious benefit of glass railings is how they perfectly preserve the view. Wooden or steel railings can obstruct the scenery and make you feel like you’re in a jail cell while you sit on your balcony. Glass railings will give you an unobstructed view of whatever is beyond the threshold of your balcony.
Easy To Clean
Traditional railings have plenty of nooks and crannies to clean. These quickly get filled with rust, spiderwebs and other dirt, making them unsightly over time ‒ particularly when situated outside and exposed to the weather. Glass, however, is super easy to clean and will always look neat. It will not collect dirt or spiderwebs and is quick and easy to wipe down.
Wooden railings perish over time, and metal railings are prone to rust. These railings need refurbishments periodically, which can be expensive. Glass railings are fitted with stainless steel fittings that do not rust. The glass itself also has an indefinitely long lifespan. Over time, the glass railings will not weaken as much as wooden or metal railings might, and are therefore safer too. Moreover, glass railings are made from thick tempered glass, making them incredibly strong.
Glass railings are pleasing to the eye owing to their smooth finish and inherent neatness. Depending on the angle and the light, glass railings can either be transparent or reflective ‒ both of which create the illusion that the space is larger than it truly is. Glass railings make your home seem more spacious and roomy while giving off a distinct air of class and elegance.
Glass railings can be designed and assembled in any number of ways. Depending on your space requirements as well as your aesthetic aspirations, glass railings can meet them. They can be made clear, frosted, patterned or tinted at your request. Moreover, the shape of the glass and its fittings are highly customizable.
Solid Wall Structure
Unlike traditional bar-type railings which have multiple gaps between every rung, glass railings can form a solid wall structure around the edges of staircases and balconies. This increases safety for pets and children, while also preventing objects from falling through the bars and getting lost or broken. Such a structure also provides protection from the wind if outside, making your balcony that much more enjoyable.
