Custom Options for Outdoor Glass Railings
Outdoor glass railings are a commonly chosen option to add not only safety, but beauty to your outdoor deck or space. There are many custom option for glass deck railings, and we will be looking at a few of the more common options.
Framed Glass Railings
Framed glass railings are the most commonly chosen option, providing both safety and pleasing looks. With this option, clear glass panels are framed, usually with metals such as aluminum. The metal frames are available in a wide range of designs and colours, and aluminum is maintenance free and durable, making it a great, long lasting option.
Frameless Glass Railings
A more contemporary and modern option is to go completely frameless. This is ideal for second story decks, or in places where you have that amazing view that should have zero obstruction. With frameless options, you will still have to decide on choices like hardware and fasteners, so you are still able to customize this to suit your style needs. Depending on your application location, you may also add a handrail, or completely forego it.
Maybe a less glamorous option compared to choosing to go frameless or framer, but an important choice nonetheless, is deciding on what thickness of glass to go with. Glass deck railings are made of safety glass, and are available in a wide array of thicknesses. You will want to decide on a thickness that will suit your application and ensure it meets all safety codes and standards.
