Benefits of frameless glass railings for staircases
Do you know why more people in Vancouver are choosing frameless glass railings for their staircases? Glass railing adds a timeless elegance and beauty, but there are numerous other benefits as well. And many of these benefits are especially appreciated right now with people spending more time at home than ever.
One of the foremost benefits of glass is it does not block your view. This makes rooms or commercial spaces feel larger, airy and open. So you finally buy your dream home with the million dollar view. The last thing you want is that view to be interrupted by distracting railing. Frameless glass deck railings give the illusion of no barrier between you and that stunning view. It doesn’t block light, creating a brighter, more inviting atmosphere. Also, because glass presents a solid surface, it reduces draughts and noise that would just flow through the bars of older styles of railing.
Generally, glass stair railings will easily clean up with a sponge. Homes with small children or pets may require a bit more upkeep. But compared to traditional wood railings which require ongoing maintenance and repair, over their lifetime glass railings are relatively maintenance free. And in the wet Vancouver climate, with glass railing there is no hassle of mildew growth.
Custom glass stair railings have no panels for children or pets to climb through, making them a safer choice in the family home. They’re made using tempered glass, which is known more commonly as safety glass. This comes in a variety of thicknesses and finishes (including colour). It is strong, durable, safe and maintenance-free.
And there’s no need to be concerned about the shape or size of glass railing needed to frame your staircases. It is fully customizable to fit exactly the area you need it to. This includes length and allows for soft bends, gentle corners or dramatic angles. Glass stair railings have a wide variety of installation options for both exterior decks and stair handrails, as well as for interior stair ways. Frameless glass railings are most often paired with stainless steel fixtures.
