Glass railings may lend a touch of modernism to a historic area by adding a sense of sophistication and beauty. It’s a great option for interior or exterior renovations that can increase the value of your home or business.
Many houses and property owners choose glass railing for pools, glass railings for decks, and other outside fixtures when it comes to exterior glass railing. The possibilities for outdoor application are endless because glass can survive extreme environmental conditions. Aesthetic attractiveness without compromising safety is a clear benefit of adding glass railings.
Indoor glass railings may make a huge difference in terms of interior design. This frequently comprises a glass staircase with a glass banister and glass stair handrails.
Glass railings have become increasingly popular in recent years for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, installing a glass rail is straightforward. These types of railings are sturdy, extremely durable, easy to clean and maintain and give security and an unobstructed view once erected, which does not necessitate any preparations. They are therefore ideal for both residential and commercial buildings.
Types of Glass Railings
Knowing the many types of glass railings makes it easy to decide which glass railing system is the best fit for your property.
- Frameless Glass Railing. There are no borders around the perimeter of the glass panel on these glass deck railings. Because these glass guardrails may be customized to match your deck and are engineered to ensure maximum safety, they are a popular choice for decks and balconies.
- Modern Glass Balcony Railing. The glass panels on this style of the railing are noticeably easier to clean and maintain than those on other types of glass railing.
- Tempered Glass Balcony Railing. The glass panels used in this form of glass railing are heated and cooled, which reinforces and increases the durability of the glass. Did you know that tempered glass is six times more resistant to breakage than regular glass? One more reason to think about using these glass panels for outdoor decks and patios.
How Much Does it Cost, Exactly?
Many people who are considering installing a glass railing system are astonished at how inexpensive it is to do so. The entire cost of installing glass railings is determined by a number of factors, including the design and size of the area covered by the glass railing.
A panel of tempered glass, for example, can cost anywhere from $15 to $30 per square foot, if not more. Increasing the thickness of the glass railing, on the other hand, raises the cost.
So, whether you’re thinking about an external or an interior glass railing, you can be assured that the advantages of installing a glass railing system are well worth the expenditure.
