Can glass railings be used on concrete?

March 18th, 2024 | in Glass Railing

Your first impression might be that concrete is too hard to attach glass railing to, however that just isn’t so. Which means we have good news for you.

Glass railings can absolutely be used on concrete to form beautiful see-through safety margins along walkways, stairs, balconies, decks, patios, porches, pool areas and more. 

In fact, these two materials complement each other so well they create a sleek and stylish indoor or outdoor feature all on their own. Here's a look at a few of the other advantages.

Glass railing and concrete advantages

  • Strong and durable. We use stainless steel fasteners to anchor our glass railing to concrete. This results in a strong, sturdy and secure railing that is also durable and weather-resistant.
  • Custom obstruction-free view. Glass railing is highly valued for its ability to allow clear sightlines. Not only does this make the area feel more spacious and airy, it gives you access to all your stunning views, beautiful gardens, and lets you keep a watchful eye on pets and children.
  • Custom privacy. For people who love all the other perks that come with glass railing designs but still want a little privacy, there’s an easy answer. Glass railings can provide as much privacy as you want. Simply ask for a colour, tint, frost, or design to be worked into the glass panels to achieve your desired level of opacity.
  • Custom UV resistance. Further customise your glass railing with a protective UV coating. Your railing will then provide exceptional UV resistance. Perfect for sitting by the pool.
  • Wind and sound resistance. Glass railing panels are solid, therefore they act as a baffle against wind and sound. Very nice when sitting outdoors enjoying the weather on your patio or balcony.
  • Beautiful and modern look. Combine the strong, clean outline of concrete with the sparkle and shine of glass to create a stunning railing that frames the best parts of your home or business.

Upgrade simple concrete with a glass railing to create something new and beautiful. Like the one in today’s picture! We installed this glass railing for a homeowner who got to keep the fantastic view while enjoying all the other advantages as well.
