Railings with glass
Glass – often used for handrails in public buildings.
Glass – ideal for outdoor balcony railings. It can be combined with stainless steel elements or painted aluminium profiles.
The glass can be tinted, or a film, also known as lamination, can be applied to obtain the desired colour. We usually recommend that the glass is toughened to ensure safety in case of breakage. Glass can be 4-12 mm thick, with 10 mm being the most common thickness for railings.
Glass as part of an interior handrail looks distinctive and modern. Often a wooden or stainless steel armrest is mounted on the glass. An aluminium profile to cover the edges is also possible, but not necessary and the handrail can simply be frameless glass.
The main advantage of glass handrails is that they do not need to be renewed. Glass can be left outside for years without being affected by hot summer days or cold winters.
The main disadvantage of glass is the daily maintenance. If the glass is placed within reach of people, it is often smudged by touching and therefore needs daily maintenance to keep it looking perfect.
