Types of Glass Railings
Framed Glass Railings
The most typically used type of glass railing is the framed glass railing since they offer a combination of safety and luxury. Framed glass railings are often cheaper since it uses a standard glass panel compared to the frameless glass railing that needs a thicker and more expensive glass that are custom manufactured. The frames are commonly made of aluminum or wood. Aluminum frames are more popular for they need little to no maintenance. This type of glass railings is designed to be installed easily on any surface, preserve views, and ensures scenery and sightlines. They are often used around pools or for raised platforms. Framed glass railings are mostly recommended for those with pets and children since they maximize the view while minimizing the odds of accidents.
Frameless Glass Railings
If you want to maximize the stunning view or scenery from your deck, frameless glass railing is most suited for you. They are made from topless and bottomless glass panels which give unimpeded views. Frameless glass railings only use posts that are specifically designed to hold the glass in place. They are the most common choice for terraces, decks, and balconies.

- Versatile design. This is one of the only railing systems that can blend with varieties of design elements without looking hodgepodge or cluttered since after installation the glass will appear finished and neat.
- Durable. Glass railings are made from tempered glass with one-quarter thickness. This shows that it is very unlikely to crack or break under normal daily use and stressor. Moreover, this makes it a great choice for deck railings with low maintenance.
- Great visual appeal. Glass railing offer a contemporary, clean look that beats any other commonly used deck railing system. It offers the most visual appeal and is identified as the gold standard for deck handrails.
- Unimpeded views. If your veranda, deck, or patio looks out onto a stunning view, glass railings are an excellent choice to guarantee that the view is unobstructed and preserved. This is highly possible as long as the installed glass railings are completely transparent. You, your family, and your friends can still enjoy the view with the great stance that the glass railings provide.
- Solid barrier. Compared to other deck handrails, glass provides a solid barrier between the ground below and the deck posts or glass balusters. If you have a screened porch or an elevated deck, glass decking products can minimize the inconvenience of potentially breaking or losing small objects.
