Frameless Glass Balustrade

What to know before buying a Glass Balustrade

If you want to give your home or office a modern look, a glass balustrade is a perfect choice to line your stairs and fence your balconies. Besides, glass is easier to clean, and it won’t block the light from coming into your spaces. If you’ve set your heart on a glass balustrade interior but aren’t sure how to choose the perfect one, we’ve compiled a list of all the things you should consider before making the purchase:


Your balustrade should be three things: safe, easy to maintain, and aesthetic. Measure the correct length and width of the place where you want the balustrade and learn about the different types of glass offered by Origin Architectural by speaking to one of our experts.


You can find five types of glass balustrades here at Origin Architectural: Cesario, Viola, Frameless, Othello and Spigot. The type of fitting you’ll get depends on the kind of balustrade you choose. Where possible, it is always ideal to fit it into concrete or steel as these are the strongest materials to fit into. If you’re considering fitting into timber or another material, we would always recommend speaking with your installer.


Glass balustrades can also be a little expensive, depending on the type, style, and texture of the glass and the size of the area where you want to install it. If you’re on a budget, choose a glass balustrade that you can afford. If you speak to one of our fantastic sales team and let me know you are price conscious, they will be happy to speak to you through the various balustrades we have available and what will be best suited to your application.

Origin Architectural recently supplied this customer in Motherwell.  The customer was looking for a frameless glass balustrade with minimal fuss.  The Customer was very happy with the result and Origin helped them achieve the look they wanted. The customer opted to add glass stiffeners to give the system extra stability, the stiffeners are minimalistic and do not take away from the frameless look.
