Balustrades, handrails, bannisters and parapets - are they all the same? The simple answer is no and they’re often used interchangeably. In essence, balustrades are balusters topped by a rail that serve as an open parapet; as opposed to a handrail or bannister that is meant to be held.
In today’s blog, we’d like to take a look at our range of glass balustrades and how these can act as a cost effective way to transform the look of balconies and other features.
What’s the Fuss?
Glass balustrades act as barriers between a feature, like a staircase or balcony, and an open drop. This offers both safety and style. By implementing glass into the design, balustrades add a very dynamic and modern feel to the feature and look great against a variety of materials.
Glass balustrades are incredibly versatile, able to be designed around almost any shape and Bradfab’s expert glass workers can custom panels to fit your requirements. They’re mostly low maintenance while instantly adding a very chic and contemporary feel to your property. A similar effect can be achieved with Bradfab's signature infinity glass channel system which offers an effortless expansion of space without the need for any steel work at all.
