As the temperature rises and the number of daylight hours increases, the importance of the garden in the home grows.
With the ability to spend more time outdoors with friends and family, many people decide to add decking or patio areas to their gardens to make them more functional and enjoyable. Where there is an edge or a need for a handrail, glass balustrades provide the ideal safety barrier while also enhancing the sophistication and elegance of the decking area. Today on the blog, we will explain why you should consider a glass balustrade for your deck.
Wherever there is a drop-off of any kind at the deck’s edge, safety is a major consideration.
This should be your top priority if your deck will be used by young children and/or individuals with limited mobility.
Glass balustrades can provide the ideal solution without the need for an unattractive and cumbersome railing system that detracts from the overall appearance of the deck and reduces space.
Instead, they permit more light to illuminate the deck, creating a greater sense of space.

Our balustrade systems have been tested to exceed the load requirements established by NSW building codes, so the risk of system failure is minimal.
In addition, they are constructed from laminated and toughened glass. Therefore, if one of the glass panels broke, it would shatter and crack inwards to prevent injury, as opposed to shattering into thousands of dangerous glass shards.
Our balustrades are marked, indicating compliance with with Australian Standard 1288 (AS1288) in order to pass the necessary checks to ensure that our products meet Australian safety, health, and environmental standards.
