Should you invest in steel balustrades or glass balustrades?
The materials you choose for your handrails and their supporting structures will depend on a few factors. You will need to consider:
- The durability required from your products, particularly in terms of corrosion resistance
- The aesthetic qualities, and how the design of your balustrades ‘fits in’ with the rest of the building
- How often your balustrades will need to be repaired or maintained, and what this might mean for the owner of the premises moving forward
- How much you can afford to spend, when all aspects of the project are considered
Steel balustrades are perhaps the most widely used. They are incredibly strong, they boast excellent anti-rust and anti-corrosion properties, and they are relatively easy to clean; they usually just need a wipe down every now and then to stay at their best. Best of all, they are usually the most cost-effective option of the two.
Transparent glass balustrades deliver a much more contemporary feel to any premises thanks to their sheer translucent panels. They make the perfect choice for modern, free-flowing designs – and while you do need to work a little harder to keep them free from dirt, dust and fingerprint marks, many of our customers are willing to overlook this in favour of their stylish look.
Both steel and glass balustrades can be configured to meet the precise specifications of your space, so the balustrade system you choose will depend entirely on which materials are going to work best in situ.
