Glass railing has a wide range of applications. It’s used from shopping malls, apartments, banking halls to swimming pools. The railing is preferred by many people due to the benefits that it comes with. The benefits include:
Whether you install it indoors or outdoors the railing provides you with unobstructed view of the surrounding.
The unobstructed view allows you to monitor activities. If you install the units in your swimming pool, you are able to check on the people occupying the pool. This allows you to easily monitor accidents such as drowning.
The unobstructed view gives your small room a spacious look. This makes the railing ideal for smaller apartments that you want to appear larger than they are.
Since it comes in different sizes and shapes, you can install railing in almost any place that you want.
Just like you can customize glass, you can also customize glass railing. One of the ways of customizing the railing is using different tints. You can use different tints including: grey, bronze, brown, black and many others. The tint that you choose depends on your needs and preferences.
Another way of customizing the railing is by engraving the glass with your unique writing and artwork.
While many have the notion that glass railing is brittle and delicate, this isn’t the case. The railing is made from toughened tempered glass that makes it withstand pressure and shock. Due to this the railing is able to withstand tampering by children and hostile adults.
When the pressure is too much for the glass to withstand, it breaks into smithereens instead of normal pointed glass bits.
Easy to maintain
Who doesn’t want railing materials that are easy to take care of? Since the glass railing materials don’t corrode or rust, you don’t need to worry too much about them.
To maintain the railing looking great you only need to clean it on a regular basis. Since it doesn’t absorb stains, you can easily wipe the stains and dirt using a sponge and glass cleaner.
Who thought glass can give you privacy? There is opaque glass railing that provides you with all the privacy that you need. You can buy already opaque glass railing, or sandblast the regular glass pieces to provide the opaque barrier. To brand your company, include logos and addresses of your company on the opaque glass.
Easy to install
Compared to stainless steel and cable railing, glass railing is easy to install. In fact, you can install it without prior experience. All you need to do is secure stainless steel spigots to the ground and then mount the glass panels on the spigots.
