Glass fencing and glass railings have become increasingly popular as homeowners and business owners have come to recognize their numerous benefits. Glass fencing and railings can be used in a wide range of applications, both indoors and outdoors.
Reasons to Install a Glass Fence or Railing
Glass is frequently chosen because it’s safe and durable. Glass fencing and railings are made with tempered glass, which is treated to make it several times stronger than standard glass. Tempered glass can stand up to a strong impact, as well as repeated exposure to harsh weather. It’s unlikely that tempered glass will break, but if it does, it will break into small, round pieces that will protect people from injury.
It’s easy to care for glass fencing and railings. The glass just needs to be cleaned from time to time to get rid of dirt, dust, pollen, fingerprints, and anything else that may be on the surface. That’s a simple process that usually can be done with just soap and water.
Where Glass Fences and Railings Can Be Used
Indoors, glass railings are common in places such as shopping malls, museums, offices, and government buildings. Glass railings provide security without blocking the view.
Glass railings can be placed on staircases to prevent falls and to give people a railing to hold onto as they go up or down the stairs. Glass railings are used on indoor balconies so that people can stay safe while they look down and admire the area below them.
It’s also common to see glass railings installed on outdoor balconies. A glass railing can provide security and prevent accidents without distracting the view.
Glass fencing is frequently used to enclose the area around a pool to keep children out of harm’s way and prevent trespassing. Glass is a good choice since it allows the homeowner to glance over at the pool area from another part of the yard and see what’s going on. The homeowner can immediately see if someone is in danger or if anyone is in or near the pool who shouldn’t be. When people are relaxing in the area near the pool, they can enjoy the view of the landscape around them without anything obstructing the view.
