The advantage of glass railings
The combination of the aesthetic advantages of creation with strict technical safety standards should always prevail to ensure the success of the development. And this has been done by an increasingly demanding market for some time.
Combining transparency and brightness, security and a sense of freedom, the glass railing meets the current demand for greater interaction with outdoor environments, and may be used on balconies of residential, office and mixed-use buildings, including indoors.
The glass railing is an architectural component that requires engineering and structural calculations, just like any building element. The choice of the glass panels that will make up this system should be based on important information such as glass geometry, thickness, supports, linear load and load duration in order to validate the strength requirements appropriate to the technical standard.
After the requirements have been set, you can be more daring by using oversized glass. Check out the topics below to make your specification easier.
