When you’re looking to install an important safety feature like handrails, you shouldn’t have to compromise the spacial aesthetics of your home. Glass is often thought of as a weaker material, so it’s usually overlooked when it comes to safety features.
Today’s modern, tempered glass is incredibly durable and low-maintenance, making it ideal for use in glass handrail systems. We’ve outlined four ways that glass handrail systems can elevate your home’s safety and design.
1. Glass Handrail Systems Are Surprisingly Low Maintenance
If you’ve ever lived in a home with wooden handrails, you’ll know they’ll start to chip or fade with regular use. They’ll require repairs, staining or painting fairly regularly.
High-quality tempered glass materials are durable and easy to maintain. A quick once-over with soap and water is all you need to keep your glass handrail system sparkling.
2. They’re the Best Way to Keep Your Family Safe
We’ve all had a sibling (or maybe it was you) get their head stuck in between railings on a stairwell or playground. Installing wooden handrails puts your family at the same risk.
Skip the call to the fire department and install glass handrail systems – made with no gaps to eliminate the worry of children or pets getting caught or falling through.
Glass handrails are also far stronger than wooden materials, making it nearly impossible for children to break them and suffer a fall. Because glass doesn’t corrode in the same way as wood, this makes it a superior material for installing handrails in your outdoor areas as well.
3. They’re Incredibly Customizable
Our glazing contractors are proud to fabricate each piece in-house so we can customize a glass handrail system to your home’s unique needs and style. Regardless of the thickness, shape or design you envision for your space, we have the expertise to bring it to life.
Whether you’d like to let more light into your home with clear materials or add a bit of privacy with frosted glass, we’ll create and install the perfect glass handrail system for your home.
4. They Won’t Stick Out
You’ve spent time and money creating a sophisticated space that reflects your personal style. Why should a safety feature interfere with your home’s interior design?
Unlike traditional handrail materials like metal or chrome, glass handrail systems fit seamlessly into elegant home designs. They contribute beautifully to the spacial aesthetics of your home by allowing light to flow right through them.
