Tips for planning your outdoor glass railing system
Outdoor glass railing is one of the top choices for Greater Vancouver homes and businesses. With a quick look around you can see them gracing porches, decks, stairs, gardens, swimming pools and yards. Glass deck railing designs are fully customizable and offer numerous benefits including a modern look, durability, safety, and access to natural views. Here are a few tips to consider when choosing a design for your own home or business.
Would you prefer the view, or would you like some privacy?
Glass offers a free, unobstructed view of the natural landscape and beauty around you. If there are no appealing views to be had, you may wish instead to use frosted or coloured glass, depending on the level of privacy you desire.
How do you want to customize your glass railing?
Depending on the aesthetic you want to achieve, you can select from stainless steel topped or frameless railings. Both offer durability and safety as well as protection from wind and noise. Glass railings use tempered glass that comes in a variety of thicknesses and finishes. Because glass railing is so customizable, it can be designed to fit any space or aesthetic required.
No matter what you choose, be sure to hire a professional contractor who is knowledgeable about current BC building codes and municipal requirements for glass railing.
