Benefits of frameless glass railings for staircases

May 18th, 2020 | in Marquis Blog

Do you know why more people in Vancouver are choosing frameless glass railings for their staircases? Glass railing adds a timeless elegance and beauty, but there are numerous other benefits as well. And many of these benefits are especially appreciated right now with people spending more time at home than ever.

One of the foremost benefits of glass is it does not block your view. This makes rooms or commercial spaces feel larger, airy and open. It doesn’t block light, creating a brighter, more inviting atmosphere. Also, because glass presents a solid surface, it reduces draughts and noise that would just flow through the bars of older styles of railing.

Custom glass railings have no panels for children or pets to climb through, making them a safer choice in the family home. They’re made using tempered glass, which is known more commonly as safety glass. This comes in a variety of thicknesses and finishes (including colour). It is strong, durable, safe and maintenance-free.

And there’s no need to be concerned about the shape or size of glass railing needed to frame your staircases. It is fully customizable to fit exactly the area you need it to. This includes length and allows for soft bends, gentle corners or dramatic angles.
