Over the years balcony balustrade design choices have changed significantly.
Ten years ago, framed balustrade systems were the dominant selection. As the cost of frameless structural glass has reduced significantly, coupled with a surge of simplistic and sleek design, frameless structural glass for balcony balustrades has become the prevailing choice.
Whether your chosen building style is designed to continue a heritage of the locations ‘industrial theme’ or a modern façade, a complementing or contrasting detail can be selected.
