  • Glass Balustrade – Beauty with Minimal Maintenance

    Balustrade Regulations in Australia

    Very often you need to install a balustrade but an old balustrade will not do. It has to serve the purpose of demarcation, safety and at the same time, look splendid – even beautiful.

    The best option for such an objective is glass balustrade. You can have custom made frosted glass with lovely designs on it or your corporate logo on it. Or Budget permitting, you could even use stained glass.

    Of course, glass all by itself does not a balustrade make. It needs support and what better than aluminium? Aluminium, the light-weight, easily installable, shinny, powder coated in a variety of colours is absolutely ideal for making glass balustrades.

    Glass balustrade fencing is beautiful to look at especially one with clear or frosted or stained glass. Glass balustrade with glazed aluminium lasts virtually forever with no need for any anti-rust coating, anti-aluminium oxide coating, paints, etc. In fact, if you love the silver colour then you won’t need to do anything after installing the glass balustrade fencing around your pool.

    Of course, the glass to be used in the making of balustrades – frosted, stained etc. needs to be toughened glass – same as the one used in your car. The idea is that it should be able to withstand human impact and even if it breaks, it does so in a manner that does not cause harm. It is easy to sweep away the shards. Broken or damaged glass panes of your glass balustrade can also be easily replaced. In fact, the entire structure is easy to install and dismantle.

    Aluminium is available in various matt finished and gloss finished colours making it easy to match with the colour of the surrounding décor and also the colour of the glass in your glass balustrade. So if you feel the aluminium used in the fencing around your pool needs to match a particular colour simply pick that colour at your local aluminium fencing supplier or don’t forget to mention it to your pool fencing contractor or pool contractor.

    A glass balustrade not only retains its gloss and lustre, it also does not warp in heat. This is ideal for uncovered pools. Wood and other natural and semi-natural materials tend to warp or blister in the heat and also require frequent maintenance.

    Glass balustrade is light-weight, precise and easy to install

    Professional pool contractors will fix the glass balustrade around your pool in just a couple of hours. A glass balustrade is easier to fix around geometrically shaped pools. However, it can be just as easily fixed around odd shaped pools as well except, it takes a bit more time – maybe a couple of hours longer.

    Glass Balustrade is economical

    The raw material i.e. aluminium and glass is relatively cheap and way cheaper than wood. A nice themed glass balustrade around your pool will cost a fraction of having the same fencing done in wood. So go right ahead and get yourself a nice glass balustrade.
