The Beauty of Glass Deck Railings

November 30th, 2016 | in Marquis Blog

Glass is described on Wikipedia as a non-crystallineamorphous solid that is often transparent and has widespread practical, technological, and decorative usage’. It is a hard, safe and beautiful material that makes in an excellent choice of material for glass railings, for interior and exterior applications. Glass railings can be designed to work in more modern-designed homes or in some cases, more traditional. The beauty of glass deck railings is that they provide uninhibited views to the outdoors, taking advantage of our beautiful Vancouver views and weather.

Why choose glass for your deck railing system?

Custom design. When designing railings for your deck may mean that you have the option to do something custom. If you have a large expanse, a wide array of angles or tricky spots, then custom designing a glass railing system will help you have the best solution possible. The beauty of glass railings is that you know that glass is an extremely safe material, and can be manufactured in a number of ways using both transparent, opaque or textured glass, depending on the look you want to achieve.

Safety. While the transparency of glass can trick our minds to think that the railings are not safe, in actuality, glass is a very hard and safe material. You can add glass deck railings to any family home and know that the material is extremely strong and durable.

Views. Vancouver and the Lower Mainland is known for it’s beauty. Mountain, ocean and beautiful parks are just a few things that it can boast as part of the appeal. Glass deck railings on your home and commercial property can help you to take advantage of the beautiful scenery, giving you an open unobstructed view to the outdoors. 

Maintenance. Glass is extremely durable and will age well in our Vancouver rainy weather. It needs only occasional cleaning with a damp cloth, and is virtually maintenance-free. No staining, sealing or repair that other railing systems may need.
