Are glass deck railings wind resistant?

Frameless glass railing sets the high bar for wind resistant options. Why? Because instead of slates or bars, it uses solid panels of thick, strong glass. Wind has no choice but to go around. 

As we all well know, our west coast climate includes plenty of windy weather. So here in Vancouver, glass deck railings are the go-to choice for wind resistance.

Gusts of wind or even a steady breeze can get pretty annoying when you’re trying to enjoy the outdoors. Not only do they add an extra chill, but they stir up dust and debris, blow paper plates and napkins about, and make you eat your own hair as it blows about your face.

Sometimes you just want to enjoy the outdoors on a nice, but windy day, without needing a jacket or having to weigh everything down. This is where frameless glass railing shines. All those solid panes of glass act as a windbreak, allowing you to sit in comfort as the wind goes up and around.

But that’s not all you’ll appreciate about your glass deck railing. You’ll also enjoy the unobstructed view! No barriers to watching your kids or pets play, or to hide your beautiful garden or landscaping. Glass railing lets in lots of natural light so there are no dark spots or shadows. Plus it’s entirely weather resistant, so there will be no need to paint, stain, or weatherproof any part of it. All that’s required for cleaning is an occasional wipe with soap & water and a soft cloth or sponge, rinse and dry/air dry.
