If you require protection from the wind in your outdoor area, we have a wind wall solution to accommodate the challenge. Heights up 6 feet with clear tempered glass is normally used; however, we also provide multiple options if privacy is also a requirement.
If you have full sun exposure, having a glass rail system tends to block any cool breeze so it restricts airflow, so a picket style may be more suitable, or a combination of both picket and glass.
Where glass may not be ideal is budget
Glass railing costs more than wood or even picket style rails. Although glass costs more initially, the long - term investment pays off as you have yearly maintenance on wood applications.
