Why Choose a Glass Balustrade System?

When looking for balustrades, glass is becoming a common choice for both commercial and domestic buildings because of their sleek look and cost effectiveness. Here are the main reasons you should consider a glass balustrade system for your home or office space.


Glass balustrades are extremely versatile and can be installed in a wide range of spaces without fuss. They offer many different options for both safety and style that make them a cost effective option.


Glass balustrades are composed of just glass, a frame and handrail. Because there’s minimal framing or hardware around the glass, they are aesthetically pleasing and also allow more natural light into a space. When used in an open area such as a deck, they offer the maximum possible view with minimal clutter.

Maintenance & Durability

Unlike traditional balustrades, glass balustrade systems are extremely easy to clean and maintain, in fact requiring very minimal maintenance over their lifespan. Being built to the highest safety standards, they are durable and will stand the test of time in your home or office.

Simple & Easy Installation

It’s important for people undertaking new builds or home improvement projects that the installation of balustrades can be completed with minimal disruption and as quickly and easily as possible. With a range of profiles to suit a huge variety of design specifications, glass balustrade systems are simple and easy to install which helps reduce installation cost for customers.
