What are glass balustrades and what are they used for ?

A glass balustrade is a railing that is made from clear or lightly tinted toughened glass. They can be used indoors and outdoors in areas where an unobstructed view of the ground below is required. Glass balustrades are useful for stairs, balconies and verandas in homes, commercial buildings and also places like parks where there is an unobstructed view of the ground below.

Why use glass balustrades?

Glass balustrades are safer than other types of balustrade because they do not obstruct vision and allow light to pass through, making them ideal for open areas or areas with limited space where a solid or partly-solid balustrade might restrict the view and look unattractive.

When compared with metal balustrades, glass balustrades are lighter and more transparent. They must however be maintained regularly to ensure that they do not discolour or lose their transparency over time due to loss of sealants or by being scratched. Some forms of glass are also subject to compromise by being exposed to chemicals found in cleaning products that contain acids.

How do you choose the right glass balustrade system

Glass balustrade system is one of the most spectacular and functional modern railing design that also adds elegance to any space. So, it’s important that you choose the right glass balustrade system for your project. Here are some helpful tips to choose the right glass balustrade system:

  • There are different types of glass available for railing systems including frosted, clear, tinted, colored, reflective, and patterned glass.
  • It’s important to choose tempered or laminated glass types for your balustrade project. If you’re installing outside the house, then it’s best to get toughened glass. It can also help if you have someone with knowledge about these things to guide you through the process.
  • The style of the balustrade is also very important. There are a lot of designs and styles to choose from including modern, transitional, contemporary, etc.
  • For safety reasons, it’s best to have sturdy glass railing system that won’t fall apart during an earthquake or strong wind. So if you live in areas with high risk for earthquakes, get a custom-built balustrade system.
  • The balustrade will also affect the flow and appearance of the house so it’s best to keep this in mind as well. This can help you get more ideas for balustrades.
  • Talking with a glass specialist is also very helpful, especially if this is your first time installing one at home.

Glass balustrade installation tips

  • Determine which type of balustrade is most appropriate for your home. There are different types like frameless glass, post and rail systems, etc.
  • Measure the area where you want to install it (height, length, width). If possible get the exact measurements. Having this information will ensure that you get the right size of glass balustrade.
  • Make a sketch with measurements and dimensions in order to get an approximate idea of how it looks like. Hire a professional who can help you with making your drawing more accurate. If this is not possible, at least try to use templates from the shop where you buy them from so that you can measure them yourself.
  • You might need help from a professional in order to install the balustrade. Once it has been installed, make sure that you have a quality sealant . This is very important because it will prevent water from going up the glass and into your home which can cause damage. You may also want to add stainless steel handrails for a more secure walkway.
  • Take care while cleaning your balustrade especially if you will be using an acidic cleaner. Clean them at least once every week with mild soap and water in order to prevent dirt build up which makes it difficult to maintain the glass surface. You can also choose not to clean them regularly but you will have to make sure that they are dust free. This is a good idea if you reside in a windy area.
  • Read the installation instructions carefully before installing your new balustrade. Follow them step by step to avoid making mistakes and causing damage to yourself or other people. Make sure that you ask for help from professionals who know how to install a balustrade safely.

Glass balustrade maintenance tips

Glass balustrades are very useful but they also require a lot of maintenance especially if you live in an area where there is a high degree of humidity. In order to prevent fungal growth, use distilled water while cleaning them.

  • If you are cleaning the glass balustrades only to remove any surface deposits, use distilled water mixed with a very mild detergent. Never use tap water as it contains lime and calcium which will lead to the deposition of these minerals on your glass railing increasing its weight. This could also lead to fungal growth which is an ideal sanctuary for moss and algae.
  • In case there are any stains on the surface, use a solution of half vinegar and half water with a little detergent added to it. If possible try to avoid using a steel wool or other abrasive scourers as they can leave rust marks if left for a while. Always dry the surface immediately after you have finished cleaning it.
  • If you have to use a powerful detergent then wear gloves while cleaning the surface. This will prevent any chemical burn on your skin which could happen if you are not careful while applying the chemicals. Never use harsh solvents like acetone, methylated spirits or ethyl alcohol as they can damage the glass balustrades by dissolving the surface of the glass.
  • Using the correct materials – To keep your balustrade clean, it is also vital that you use the correct tools for this. If you are using a mop which has been used on hard floors before, then there is every chance that this could scratch the surface of your glass balustrade. It is certainly a good idea to use a different one for this task  using a microfibre cloth would be ideal.
  • Always use a dry or cotton cloth to remove your cleaning solution before you wipe it with a clean and dry soft lint free cloth. This will prevent spotting and streaking on the surface after drying. If there are any streaks present, it means that you have not wiped them enough so do go over them again and again until they are completely gone.
  • If you find that there is a thin crust forming on the glass surface then remove it as soon as possible before it begins to spread and replace the crust with more deposits. This can be done by using very fine sandpaper or steel wool instead of cleaning the surface with chemicals.
  • Always remember that you have to be very careful when you are cleaning glass surfaces with chemicals as they can damage the surface if used in excess. Use your common sense while applying them and try not to let them stay on the surface for a long time. If you have any doubts about the suitability of a certain cleaning chemical for your balustrade, check with a professional.
