What are glass railings?
Glass railings are a type of railing system that uses glass panels as the infill material instead of traditional materials such as wood, metal, or cable. Glass railings are often used in modern or contemporary design schemes and can provide a sleek, open, and transparent look. They can be used both indoors and outdoors and are suitable for a variety of applications, including balconies, decks, stairs, and pool surrounds.
There are several different types of glass railings, including frameless glass railings, which use structural silicone to hold the glass panels in place, and semi-frameless glass railings, which have a minimal metal frame around the edges of the glass. Glass railings can also be combined with other materials, such as metal or wood, to create a more customized look.
Glass railings are generally considered to be safe and durable, as long as they are properly designed, installed, and maintained. It is important to use tempered safety glass in glass railings to ensure that the glass will shatter into small, relatively harmless pieces if it is broken.
