A glass balustrade can offer an elegant and stylish design to any project whether it be for a decking or patio. Glass is a versatile material and one of its many benefits is that it complements other materials and architectural designs, making it perfect for any garden whether modern or classic.
Origin recently worked on this glass project in Perth. The materials used for this glass balustrade in Perth, Scotland consisted of an Origin, Quality Fit channel and 17.5mm Toughened Laminate glass from TUFFX.
Glass, being a transparent material, reflects light making a decking area or patio feel more spacious whilst also offering an uninterrupted view of your garden.
Another benefit of a glass balustrade for your decking is that it can separate your garden into zones. Whether your garden is big or small creating zones is a great way to utilise your garden and the use of glass means the zones won’t be cut off and the visual landscape won’t be obstructed.
When planning a decking project, it is important to consider safety measures, for instance, the type of decking boards you are going to use and the height of the decking area from the ground.
A glass balustrade system can act as a safety barrier as we have established. The height of it will depend on how far the surface of the deck is from the ground. There are regulations in place that stipulate how high the balustrade has to be depending on the height of the deck.
For lower decks that are 600mm or below (from the ground), the balustrade should be 900mm high. For decks that are over 600mm from the ground, the balustrade should be 1100mm high.
