Whether you’re building a staircase or raised alfresco area, ensuring that the people using the structure are kept safe at all times is essential.
If your decking is raised more than 1 metre above the ground, it is often necessary to have a balustrade installed to prevent someone from accidentally falling over the edge.
If you have decided that a wire balustrade will be the perfect complement for your new staircase, there are a number of regulations that it will have to meet to ensure safety.
Whether you’re planning on using glass balustrading inside or outside the home (such as that new staircase or amazing balcony), the panes should be toughened. This is made from annealed glass that has been treated with a thermal tempering to make it far stronger.
Whilst glass balustrades look fantastic, indoors and out, you will need to perform some regular maintenance to ensure that they remain looking as fantastic as they did when first installed.
