You might think of a glass railing as a frail piece of architecture, however, it’s actually a very durable, safe, and beautiful material when purchased from and installed by a reputable company such as Glass Repair Canada.
Most glass railings for stairs or glass railings for decks are made from laminated glass and tempered glass, which is much stronger than standard glass. These railings are also designed to resist shattering when broken so it’s safer than you’d think. In this article, we’ll discuss the various options you have when it comes to buying glass railings. Typically, there are two main types of glass railings which are framed and frameless. Each type of glass railing is preferable depending on the situation, location, and of course, your preferred aesthetic.
Framed Glass Railings
Framed glass indoor railings are the most popular type of glass railing among homeowners because they offer a unique combination of beauty and functionality. These railings typically consist of glass panels sitting neatly inside of a frame. The frames are made from different types of metals including aluminum.
Framed glass railings are highly coveted because they can be easily attached to anything including wooden decks and/or concrete. They keep your patio or inside your home looking open with lots of natural light. They are great outside around a pool or patio, or even inside along a staircase.
