What is balcony balustrading?

A balcony balustrade is the low, often somewhat transparent wall used on a balcony. They are commonly used on Juliet balconies. You will have almost certainly seen them in old fashioned houses made out of short fat stone columns.

In recent times, the glass balustrade is something that continues to grow in popularity due to its stylish and contemporary look, its suitability for commercial and residential properties, its ease of cleaning and how it maximises the sunlight to your interior.

You'll frequently see glass balcony balustrade systems being used for new build apartments, as their modern look integrates seamlessly with contemporary architecture. However, the beauty of the glass balustrade system is that the material is so versatile it looks great on any architectural style.

 

The perfect addition to any balcony

Glass balustrades are a perfect option for anyone who is looking to update or install a Juliet balcony on their property. Installing glass balustrade has many advantages including:

  • Sleek and elegant look
  • Safety and security
  • Full range of customisable options
  • Weather-resistant
  • Maximises space and natural light

 

Modern aesthetic

Depending on the opening size, a single glass panel could be used to add a touch of contemporary style to your home.

Glass being a particularly aesthetically versatile material, your balustrade acts as a blank canvas for your own sense of style. Whether you want to go for a minimal and clean look, or a more homely, cosy vibe, the non-invasive and classic nature of the material means that you'll achieve your vision no matter what your personal taste.

 

Safe and secure

They might look more delicate than their steel balustrade counterparts, but glass balustrades are just as safe and secure as traditional metal railing.

We always use special reinforced glass coupled with glass railing and sturdy glass clamps. We also offer strong frameless balustrade systems for your balcony. All of our glass balustrade systems are weather resistant.

 

Customisable Appearance

What's great about using glass panels to design a balustrade is that they can easily be adapted to your properties size and shape, as well as your personal taste. With iFab, you can create a beautiful and bespoke balcony that meets all your requirements.

For added privacy frosted glass can be used for sections or full balconies, still letting in plenty of sunlight but blocking views of your interior to those outside. Curved glass is another fantastic option to consider, they offer a unique look and demonstrate to compliment any property. We can customise your glass with polished edges or radius corners for a stamp of originality.

For full balconies, glass panels can be used to add the same effect but designed to your requirements. Large panels could be used to create barriers, separators or railings along the edge of your balcony, all with a modern look that metal or wooden railings couldn't provide.

 

Maximises space and natural light

Glass tends to create the illusion of more space and expansion. With an abundance of natural light, you'll invite the outdoors in, especially if you choose a transparent glass for your balustrade.

 

What type of balustrade suits me?

Using structural glass and stainless steel, we offer a range of styles, designs and types of balustrade for your properties interior and exterior. For glass balustrades, in particular, there are two main design systems:

  • Channel system: a seamless design that does not use posts and offers uninterrupted views of the outdoors. It can be left as an entirely glass balustrade design, or railings can be added to the top for extra support.
  • Integrated post system: a more traditional design that uses glass panels and stainless steel posts for support. This option also has the option of a top-mounted railing.


Both of these systems offer the same stability, safety and security as glass railing systems but can have massively different designs and looks.
