You have probably visited at least one home that has glass balustrades, and if you have, it wouldn’t be something that you’d forget, as they do look stunning. More and more Australian homeowners are enjoying the benefits that come with a bespoke glass balustrade design, which can be designed and installed by a specialist glazier.
Engage a Specialist Glazier
Not every glazier would be able to offer such a service, yet there is one company that does frameless balustrades in Adelaide, which are customised according to the layout. There are many options when it comes to the glass, with frosted patterns and colours and that allows you to choose something in keeping with your décor. All work would come with a long warranty, which does give you peace of mind.
You can have seamless look with glass balustrades, using special spigots and brackets that enable the 12mm heat-treated glass panels to be attached securely. The maximum width for a glass panel is 1500mm, which reduces the lines considerably, and with the entire balustrade designed by experts, it will fit like a glove.
This style has a post between each glass panel, plus a top rail, which is attached to the posts, and with air gap of between 50-80mm on each panel, you can keep the balustrade clean without any issues. Posts can be made from stainless-steel, powder-coated aluminium or steel, and the post shape can be flat, rectangular or round, whichever you prefer.
Unlimited Design Choices
There are many combinations that can be used to provide your staircase with essential glass support, so you do need to sit down with an expert glazier to discover the various ways in which your balustrade can be designed. Bespoke design really does make all the difference, ensuring that the finished job is in keeping with your décor, and with a professional installation, you can’t go wrong.
Easy to Keep Clean
If you have a traditional timber balustrade, you will already know how difficult they are to keep clean, with so many tiny areas that collect dust, yet with a seamless glass support, you simply wipe with some glass cleaner and a dry cloth.
Spigots & Brackets
Using a combination of both, it is possible to design and fit a seamless glass barrier, one that will compliment your décor. The fittings come in stainless-steel, powder-coated aluminium and mirror finish and there are various colour choices with the aluminium.
If you would like a skilled glazier to pay you a home visit, search with Google and you’ll find a local tradesman. If you want to be sure of value for money, why not ask several local glaziers to quote for the project? This will help you to make an informed decision regarding which company to use.
Bespoke solutions literally allow you to do almost anything design-wise and having your wooden balustrade replaced by a tailored glass solution isn’t as costly as you might think. Talk to an experienced local glazier; one with considerable experience working on balustrades and he’ll design the ideal solution.
