Do you live somewhere with particularly nice views that you would like to show off? If you are building a new commercial property or renovating or remodeling an existing property, you may want to consider glass railing or glass fencing systems as an alternative to traditional barriers such as chainlink, wood, and metal.
Glass pool fencing can be a unique alternative to standard pool fencing systems
Glass pool fencing can be a particularly attractive alternative to traditional pool safety fencing that is required by law at commercial properties. Unlike traditional forms of pool fencing, glass fencing is transparent and does not obstruct the view. In design terms, glass pool fencing systems are extremely versatile and can work in a variety of settings, complementing the existing styles and themes of the pool area. Because they are not made of metal, glass fences are not susceptible to corrosion, e.g., by chlorine, a chemical commonly found in pools.
Glass fencing and railing systems are very durable
Make sure that you choose glass fencing that has been tempered and is shatter-resistant for your commercial property. Typical glass railing or fencing systems are constructed from a number of glass panels which have been fortified by tempering, which is a process of heating glass to a very high temperature then cooled rapidly. The tempering process results in glass that is up to five times stronger than regular glass. If the glass fencing or railing does break, it shatters into very small rather than large pieces, which reduces the chance of being injured by the glass.
Glass railings are also a great option for commercial properties because they meet building code, provide a modernized look for a hotel or multifamily complex, are versatile and can seamlessly blend in with existing designs and architecture.
