Although balustrades have been key features of architecture for as long as we can remember, glass balustrades are a much more contemporary addition. Despite this however, the glass balustrade has quickly sky-rocketed in popularity, seeing the traditional balustrade slowly be phased out for its more modern counterpart.
But how can you benefit from glass balustrades, and how much can you expect to pay?
At Square 1 Balustrades, there isn’t much we can’t tell you about balustrades! As the go-to suppliers for glass balustrades in the UK you know you’re in safe hands with us. So, if you’re considering implementing a glass balustrade at your home or office, here is everything you need to know – including how much you can expect to spend.
What is a glass balustrade?
In terms of practicality, glass balustrades actually do the exact same job as traditional balustrades. Acting as a safety barrier, glass balustrades can be installed on a range of applications, typically where a void is present.
However, practicalities aside, glass balustrades are a fantastic architectural device for modern aesthetics. Improving the appearance of both the interior and exterior of buildings, they assist in the illusion of additional space where it may be at a premium.
Where can glass balustrades be used?
Glass balustrades can be found in a variety of places, from office blocks and stores to residential homes, balconies, garden decks and swimming pools. Although in most cases they serve a practical purpose, they are often also used purely for aesthetic appeal, adding value to homes whilst offering security where required.
Here at Square 1, we have supplied glass balustrades for pools, exterior decking and even stairs and landings, to create a safety feature that looks striking and adds a sleek modern appeal.
Are glass balustrades safe for use?
Whether you’re looking to fit glass balustrades indoors or out, they are designed with the sole purpose of adding safety and security. Each of our glass balustrades use glass which has been manufactured in accordance with BS EN 12600: 2002. This is to ensure that we provide our customers with the safest glass no matter what your specific requirements. We also tailor the type of glass to your needs, for instance whether you want your glass balustrades indoors or out, how thick you require it to be and what type of frame you will be opting for, ensuring we offer the option of toughened glass for additional security.
