Design of the week: A garden balustrade solution
This week we have been creative in designing a garden balustrade solution for an extension project utilising our newly introduced edge mounted mini post balustrade system.
The customer is in the process of extending their small timber decking area further into the large back garden and incorporating a swimming pool within the area. They were looking for a glass railing system to use as a garden balustrade running along the sides of the decking.
When thinking of purchasing a glass balustrade and decking from different suppliers it is good practice to plan in advance the systems you are going to use prior to installing the decking; this ensures the system can work seamlessly together and you don’t meet any difficulties once the decking is installed.
Working with the client on the shape and material for the decking, we were able to offer a bespoke design solution for a garden balustrade utilising our mini post frameless glass balustrade system. The edge mounted stainless steel brackets are perfect for fixing the glass panels in place by utilising the height of the decking. Manufactured from duplex stainless steel, they offer greater corrosion resistance when utilised for an outdoor glass balustrade or as in this instance, a pool fencing solution.
Finishing off the design with a minimal handrail running over the top of the glass panels, the end result will be a modern and stylish garden balustrade creating a safe outdoor living environment to be enjoyed by the whole family and for entertaining friends. With such stunning views ahead a frameless glass balustrade is a perfect fit for the project. Carrying out a site visit prior to preparing a quotation and bespoke visualisation we were able to envisage the balustrade whilst there at the property utilising the pictures taken during the visit to create stunning graphics for the customer, including the decking area yet to be installed. This allowed the client to truly understand what they project will look like once installed and making sure they were 100% happy with the solution chosen.
