Transparent material used in balustrade construction

1. Glass enforced by warmth- not chosen that often!

Transparent material used in balustrade construction
When we first hear the words “Glass Staircase”, we imagine it will be extremely fancy, and the second point we might imagine is that it would be a dangerous feature to have in one’s home.
It’s comforting, therefore, to know that the material used in glass stair railings is extra secure. Some popular transparent materials used to make these balustrades are:
Glass enforced by warmth
Modulated glass
Structurally designed glass

2. Glass enforced by warmth, not chosen that often

This glass is fortified by warming it up to a very intense degree. The next step is that the material is forced to cool down which results in considerable steadiness and soundness. It will now be twice as sturdy as glass that has not been manipulated this way. If hit, it cracks into sharp-edged fragments. Choosing this type of material for your balustrade is not that common. However, some customers do prefer it.

3. Modulated Glass, the common and recommended choice!

The transparent material is put through a similar system to the above material. The main difference to mention is the way it is cooled. In this case, the process of bringing the material down to a lesser temperature is speeded up so that a greater impact is needed before the material breaks. This means it won’t be broken as easily.  Modulated glass is sturdier than glass strengthened by heat.

Modulated materials shatter in a non-risky manner. They shatter into little slices that don’t cause injury. Another way to refer to it is as “safety” material. The above-mentioned qualities make it an excellent option to use as a fence.

4. Structurally designed glass, the best-loved by customers!

For steps made of transparent material, an exceptionally sturdy material is required. It must not shatter. Structurally designed material is best for a glass barricade structure because of its incredible robustness.
