Glass or Wire Balustrades for Your Balcony?

The other major facet, particularly in Melbourne that you need to consider is the fluctuations in weather. With four seasons in one day a regular occurrence in Melbourne, choosing the right fit isn’t as straightforward as it would be in most other cities. Changing wind and light conditions also means that both options will have advantages and disadvantages.

Glass Balustrades

Glass balustrades offer a sleek and modern design for balconies that are sophisticated yet practical. In particular the transparency and unobstructed views through glass balustrading is hard to match. Glass has the added advantage of also being an excellent windbreaker shielding those sitting on the balcony.

In reality though the average person who wants a balcony are going to be sitting on it when it’s warm. Therefore you may desire a cool breeze when you are out enjoying the sunshine. Unfortunately this is an aspect that is lacking somewhat with glass balustrading. If this is one of the primary requirements of those sitting on the balcony then this may prove to be a deal breaker.

Finally from a perspective of safety, Kebles Trading supply the strongest and most durable glass available in the market ensuring that you can sit back and relax on your new balcony.

Wire Balustrades

Wire balustrades are generally constructed from stainless steel and have proven a very popular option for homeowners. Not only do they provide a minimal aesthetic for your balcony area but are exceptionally cost effective. Two main options are generally available when considering wire balustrades being horizontal and vertical. The determinant of which type you use will depend on the balcony structure and setup.
