Glass balustrades let you enjoy the view and are a dream solution for most homeowners. Many of our customers are pleasently surprised to find the price of framed glass balustrades are actually on par with aluminium rail balustrades, with glass no longer as steeply priced, making them a more cost effective option for homeowners.
Different finished styles – such as framed or semi-frameless glass balustrades depend on the choice of glass sizes (thickness) and whether a bottom and/or top rail are required. A general rule of thumb is - the thicker the glass the stronger it is, therefore the less “aluminium hardware” is needed to support it, for a more semi-frameless glass style. However, the thicker the glass the higher the price, so including more ‘aluminium hardware’ (such as top and bottom rails), with the slimmest glass is a less costly framed glass balustrade solution.
General guidelines for choosing your post and glass balustrade system are:
Fully Framed Finish - 6mm thick glass with a top and bottom rail
Semi-Frameless Finish - 10mm thick glass with a top rail (no bottom rail)
We offer a range of glass and aluminium post balustrade styles to help each customer get the right balance of cost and looks which works best for them.
