Benefits of Glass Railing Systems:
OPENS UP A ROOM AND INCREASES VISIBILITY Light and visibility are primary concerns when designing a living space. Glass railing systems provide a cost effective and versatile solution to these design challenges. Add railings to a staircase in your home, around a deck or pool in your backyard, or at your business, to open up any space. Wooden or metal railings can be bulky, decrease visibility, and even block sunlight from entering the room. Glass railing systems; however, offer a sleek design that allows natural sunlight to radiate in and make the space feel much more open.
REQUIRES LITTLE MAINTENANCE Unlike wooden railings, glass railing systems require little maintenance. In internal applications, wood systems require continual polishing and staining to preserve their color and shine. When wooden railings are outside, the maintenance required skyrockets. Exposure to sun, wind, and water cause the railings to weather rapidly.
OFFERS SAFETY AND DURABILITYIn addition to their modern design, glass railing systems are safe and extremely durable. Glass railings provide a way to ensure safety on decks and staircases, preventing the possibility of a fall. They also offer protection from the external elements when installed outdoors. Glass railing systems function as a barrier against strong winds, rain, and heavy snowfall.
CUSTOMIZABLE TO ANY SPACEGlass railing systems are highly customizable, allowing every space to be uniquely designed. Whether you are looking for a completely open room or would like a little more privacy, glass railings can be created to fit those needs. Customize the glass by changing the shape, size, and transparency. For greater privacy, consider blurring or frosting the surface of the glass.
While glass railings are becoming increasingly popular, there are a few things to consider as you design and select a product:
- Glass railing systems require often cleaning
- As a transparent material, glass does not allow for much privacy
- Glass railings require an investment for the high quality and durable material.
