Glass balustrades for decking – the must-have feature for your garden this summer

With summer just around the corner, many of us are starting to look forward to those warm summer evenings in the garden – enjoying a much-longed-for get-together with friends around the barbecue, maybe a beer or chilled glass of wine in hand.

But is your garden summer ready? Raised decking is one of the most popular additions to British gardens, but in order to make it safe, you may find a balustrade of some kind is required.

Glass balustrades are the perfect option for decking and raised patios. They allow uninterrupted views without any compromise of safety.

Benefits of toughened glass balustrades for decking

Toughened glass balustrades from reputable suppliers like Glass & Mirror Solutions are a low-maintenance and weather-proof solution that will keep your decking looking good for years to come.

Toughened glass doesn’t scratch or chip and is super strong – up to five times stronger than standard annealed glass. The tempering process that gives toughened glass its strength ensures that in the unlikely event you do manage to break a toughened glass panel, the pane will crumble to harmless pebbles. So no razor sharp shards of glass posing a risk to anyone who happens to be nearby.

And as these client installations show, the visual impact of glass balustrades for decking can be stunning.

Fixing glass balustrades to decking

When it comes to fixings for your glass balustrade, there is a wide range of options. For a frameless style you can go for a simple spigot system, clamps, or a base channel system for complete minimalism.

If you prefer the look of a hand rail finishing off your glass balustrade, you might choose a modern and sleek brushed stainless steel rail, or a more traditional wooden hand rail to complement the wood of the decking.

You'll find more design inspiration in our online gallery.

Whichever style you go for, make sure you choose a trusted and reputable supplier. At Glass & Mirror Solutions, we can design, measure up, supply and fit your garden glass balustrade, ensuring your decking is looking its best and ready for you to enjoy all summer long.
