Glass balustrades as a modern and aesthetic interior design

Glass balustrades are an increasingly popular choice both in public buildings, such as office buildings, offices or shopping centers, as well as in private homes. Made of glass with increased impact strength, they are attractive in appearance and functional.

Among the available glass balustrade options, there are self-supporting, rail and steel frame railings. Self-supporting railings, mounted directly to the ceiling, are characterized by the lack of visible fasteners, which makes them a more expensive and technically demanding solution. Railings on the rail, in turn, are popular due to the ease of installation and the possibility of finishing with various materials, such as wood or steel. The last option, railings in a steel frame, is characterized by increased resistance to external factors and a wide selection of designs.
