5 Great benefits of glass balustrades

Tags: Inspiration

If you hadn’t considered glass balustrades before, it’s worth considering them as part of your next home improvement project. Glass balustrades suit all types of home and boast a number of excellent advantages over the alternatives. Read on to find out how.


Unlike alternative materials like metal, frameless glass balustrades suit both interior and exterior applications, especially in contemporary homes. What’s more, glass is neutral; it complements every furnishing and decorative style, so you won’t have to worry about it clashing with your décor.


When you think of a glass balustrade or glass balcony, you may automatically assume that it will be weaker and therefore less safe than other options. This is not the case with our range of balcony glass, which is manufactured by C3 Systems using tempered panels that can withstand up to 4.5KN/m of pressure to ensure excellent safety and security.

Easy to maintain

Unlike iron that can rust and wood that can rot over time, glass balustrades offer an alternative that is much easier and more affordable to clean and maintain. A little water and vinegar is all that’s required to remove smudge marks and fingerprints and keep your glass panels looking their best.


Glass balustrades open up your space, rather than making it appear smaller. This is due to the fact that not only are they transparent, they also allow light to pass through freely through them, and it’s a well know design fact that lighter rooms appear larger to the naked eye.

Great windbreakers

Unlike railings, seamless glass balustrades are perfect for keeping out the chill as you enjoy a drink or a good book out on your balcony. At Broadview, we can even install height-adjustable balcony glass panels, so you can fully utilise this aspect of your glass balustrade for ultimate comfort, without sacrificing your view at all.

At Broadview, we supply and install an excellent range of glass balustrades, from the seamless Pro system, to the guillotine glass enclosures available with the Habitat Win. Contact our team today on 01202 644007 to find out more about our glass balcony products, and to arrange a free site survey.
