Balustrades are a safety requirement on open staircases, balconies and around pools, but there’s no reason why they should be an eyesore. Glass balustrades are an increasingly popular option in Melbourne – and for good reason, as they’re attractive, versatile and easy to clean. In this blog post, Melbourne Glass Balustrades takes a look at some of the many advantages offered by glass balustrading.
The biggest appeal of glass balustrades for most people is their ability to match any decor. Glass is unobtrusive and doesn’t detract from the design of a room or pool area. It can be a far more attractive option compared to a clunky wooden or metal banister or pool fence. If clear fencing isn’t for you, frosted glass options are also available that offer more privacy while still allowing light through.
Melbourne Glass Balustrades can provide a wide range of frameless, semi frameless and framed glass balustrades in clear and frosted options to suit your specific style preferences.
Cleaning glass can be a daunting task that’s only really done properly when your parents are coming to visit. However, wiping down glass balustrading is certainly easier than cleaning other balustrade types. Getting into the nooks and crannies of a different type of balustrade can be a hassle, whereas a glass one simply requires a small amount of cleaning product and a streak-free cloth. While it’s true that fingerprints can show up more on a glass balustrade than a wooden or metal one, dust will be almost non-existent.
