Frameless and Semi-Frameless Glass Balustrades – Differences?

Frameless Glass Balustrades

For fans of the minimalist trend, frameless glass is definitely the right choice for you. This configuration is one of the most popular, as it is the best way to show off your beautiful glass panels without the intrusion of a structural frame. With a frameless glass balustrade, the glass panels will be anchored to the substrate using spigots, standoffs or channel. The finished result is nothing short of spectacular.

Frameless design is by far the most popular, but it does cost more than semi-frameless balustrade systems. You should consider the aesthetic benefits and long-term value that a system such as this could provide you and your family when making a purchasing decision.

Benefits include:

  • Minimalist Design
  • Unimpeded Views – No Visiblestructural frame
  • High-End Appeal
  • Ease of Cleaning
  • Highly Sought After by Home Buyers
  • Thicker Glass for Structural Integrity and Long-Term Durability (Railsafe only use Australian, custom made glass panels. NOT imported inferior glass products)

Framed Glass Balustrades

Framed glass balustrades are more reasonably priced, however they require stainless steel or aluminium structural frames and the glass panels are designed to fit neatly within the aluminium frames. Current design trends tend towards matching semi-frameless balustrades with older styles of buildings (e.g red brick etc).

We can use safety glass if requested and powder coated aluminium can be used.

Benefits Include:

  • Cost Effective
  • May be more suitable for older homes
  • Smart and stylish upgrade from traditional balustrade systems
  • Durable
