A glass balustrade is an interesting piece of architecture and is basically a balustrade that is primarily composed of glass. It has its aesthetic uses and also its functional uses. A frameless glass balustrade, as the name suggests, is a glass balustrade that often appears “seamless” or at least the components or “frame” holding the balustrade up are barely visible — and sometimes not visible at all.

Frameless glass balustrades are the choice of both owners and designers who are after a modern and more futuristic look for their home and/or commercial spaces. The seemingly apparent lack of metallic and opaque components helps give that illusion of seamlessness and provides a more open and unrestricted style.

Whether the application of your frameless glass balustrade is indoors or in outside spaces, it will help deliver just the right blend of elegance and spaciousness to compliment most modern and even older generation designs.

Safety 

One might think that because the majority of the material used is glass is that it will not hold up as firmly as a steel or concrete balustrade would. This is a common misconception for anything “glass” as it is known to be extremely brittle.

While a frameless glass balustrade may look fragile, remember that it is both aesthetic and functional. These kinds of glass are often tempered and having undergone strict testing and treatment are classified as “Safety Glass”.

Durability is not in question because safety glass is designed to less likely break and, in the event of breakage, would be less hazardous. Safety glass was made to be impact-resistant and as such, can bear sufficient load as fine as steel or concrete would.

It meets all the safety standards of traditional balustrades, minus all the clunky and restrictive visual aspects. If you would consider using frameless glass balustrades, especially if you have young children and small pets, then it is recommended to have them installed in potential hazard areas such as along the stairs or to barricade edges or serve as backyard fencing.

Utility

Besides meeting and adhering to safety standards, frameless glass balustrades also offer a range of other added benefits. Because these pieces are transparent, it allows natural light to easily reach relatively dark spaces such as staircases and floor edges.

These balustrades maximize the use of natural light and help reduce the need to install artificial lighting at least in these areas of your home or workspace. Your view also remains unrestricted, allowing you to admire and appreciate all the other surrounding details such as flooring patterns and textures, as well as wall designs.

Glass is also an eco-friendly material and is a safer alternative to steel or concrete as it does not degrade as easily and will not emit harmful toxins or chemicals in the event that they do.
