One of the most popular trends for outdoor landscaping projects is the installation of beautiful and high quality glass deck railings.
At M.E. Contracting, we have more than a decade of experience designing, shaping, and installing glass deck railings of all shapes and sizes, each one complementing any deck or architecture and adding a level of security unmatched by wood or other “open” deck railings.
Visually, glass deck railings allow for more natural light, comfort, and an expansive field of view for people on and off the deck that contributes to a sense of relaxation and well-being. Because they’re transparent, glass railings feature more security, as they form a protective barrier that keep people and pets away from hazards like drop offs, utility or electrical equipment, or even automotive traffic. If you’ve ever been sitting at home and experienced a bird or squirrel wander or fly into a window or glass door, glass deck railings address that because they’re available frosted, tinted, or even in different colors that blend seamlessly with your existing landscaping or architecture features.
Unlike other types of railings, glass deck railings are solid, meaning small hands and feet can’t slip through them, nor can pets, toys, or other objects that may result in injury. While other railings have gaps, these types of railings are entirely closed, meaning nothing can pass through them without causing breakage. Depending on preference or security needs, our glass railings are available in different thicknesses so you can choose the perfect version for your deck.
M.E. Contracting offers glass deck railings in a wide array of design options, making it simple to customize them to suit your personal tastes and needs. Each of our glass railings for decks is available in laminated or tempered glass that can increase or decrease tint or opacity, presenting different levels of protection from potentially harmful UV rays.
Glass deck railings are also easy to maintain. When they become dirty, simply clean them with any good quality glass cleaner, rinse them with clean water, them dry them with a lint-free cloth or allow them to air dry.
