What is a balustrade, and why do you need it?

A balustrade is a safety or fall prevention barrier for stairways, ramps or any corridor, hallway, balcony, or mezzanine that isn’t protected by a wall. Alright, so now you know what they are and what they do, but why do you need one?

1. Safety

The obvious reason, is that it’s required by building codes that you have one. The unobvious reason, is that it’s safer than traditional handrails/railings. This is because of its frameless and solid design, which provides no gaps or spaces that children can possibly slip through or get stuck between. A balustrade provides a safe, durable and beautiful barrier that you can feel satisfied with.

2. Beauty

It’s better looking, simple as that. With frameless and semi-frameless, glass or stainless-steel balustrade options available to make your stairs or balcony look sleek and modern. It also provides a much better view should you choose a glass balustrade, either for your balcony or to showcase those beautiful new stairs.

3. Durability

Your new balustrade will last a long time without wear or tear, and with a clean simple design it will never look dated. Thus, adding value, safety and beauty to your home. The durability will make it an addition to your home that will be worth the expense.
