Glass RailingsRailings are meant to protect the people using the building structure. They also serve another purpose – they add to the overall aesthetics of the building structure giving it a beautiful appearance. Residential and commercial buildings prefer to use glass railings to any other material simply because they create a modern look. The transparent nature of glass lets in the light and creates a sense of space and openness.

Glass railings are a practical solution for your home or commercial structure. They provide the necessary safety while also allowing uninterrupted views giving your residential space a different look altogether. If you wish to enjoy the panoramic views of the great outdoors from your balcony, glass railings are the best option.

It is not only the transparency of glass railings but also its several advantages that make it a popular choice of home owners and builders alike. Made of toughened and sturdy glass, the glass railings are quite strong and do not break or shatter easily, making them a safe but elegant option.

With glass railings it is possible to create the ultimate modern look. Aluminium and glass railings are quite common in the Australian construction industry and are being used for internal as well as external applications. Glass railings complement the sleek, straight lines of contemporary architecture. An added advantage is the unobstructed views that promote a sense of continuity from the interiors of the structure to the exterior landscape.

Perhaps, the biggest advantage of glass railings is the fact that they require very little maintenance. Simply use soap and water to keep your glass railings shiny clean. A point to note however is that hand and finger stains or water marks are immediately visible on glass which might need extra efforts at cleaning. Low maintenance cuts the cost of painting or polishing your railings which lead to huge monetary savings.

Even when tempered class is exposed to harsh weather, it does not corrode. This means glass railings will last for a long time, making them a cost effective option.

Privacy is not a virtue with Glass Pool Railings – this is the only disadvantage. However, you can go around this issue by using frosted glass for the panels rather than using transparent glass if privacy is an aspect you need to consider.
