Balustrading Options - Elise from Pearcedale
We are renovating our House and are adding a decking area on the second level. We are not sure what options there are available for Balustrading, would you be able to give us an idea of what is out there?
Elise there are alot of options with Balustrading, the main two types being with either a wire infill or glass. Wire Balustrading looks quite modern and smart, and is available in vertical and horizontal wiring. There are alot of different profiles that the posts and railing are available in, including square, oval, round, rectangular and more. Tube railing is also available, which means that instead of wire infills, you would have thin stainless steel tubes. Glass Balustrading is a great option if you have a view that you do not want to obstruct. This is a very stylish balustrading option, and like wire balsutrading there are many different variations of styles. Some of these include, Semi framed, fully framed, framless, and pinned. You can even get obscure glass if you want privacy.
