Give your Patio the X-Factor with Glass Railings from Balconette

glass patio railings Fancy making your patio the talk of the town? Then why not install glass railings? More than just a fence; there are many ways patio glass railings can turn your garden or patio into something very special.

Zone your Garden

Good garden design has a lot to do with zoning. It can make your outside space work more effectively and make things look much more spacious. Clever use of patio glass railings can help you separate your patio from the rest of your garden for a distinct area that transitions from the house into the garden making it perfect for al-fresco suppers or your morning coffee. And with a choice of features, ranging from the slick frameless glass railings to the more distinct separation of a handrail balustrade, you’ll find something to suit your patio beautifully.

The stunning look that our glass balustrades produce is hard to beat but, because it’s glass, some people have concerns over safety. We’ll also talk about keeping the glass clean.
