Despite being a popular choice for architects and interior designers, many people shy away from installing glass balustrades because of safety concerns. Glass has a reputation for being fragile and easy to break, so instead many people opt for wood or metal balustrades.
But here’s a surprise. So long as you buy from a reputable supplier and install your glass balustrading correctly, glass balustrades are very safe. A word of caution – safety glass isn’t a cheap choice, it’s a technical material and priced accordingly. Don’t risk your safety and that of others with “cheap” safety glass – buy only from reputable suppliers.
