Usually if you are working with a raised deck, then the main reason to add a railing system is safety: the correct railing chosen can create a more pleasant feel to the outdoor living space, a more inviting and user friendly atmosphere. If the aim is also to create a private area in your garden then a tinted glass balustrade can act as both a railing and privacy screen, providing you with a great socialising area whilst keeping it separate from the rest of the outdoor space. On the other hand, a clear glass balustrade can open a space even further and allow you to enjoy your views from any corner of your decking space.
