Handrails, glass handrails today accompany various types of stairs and fences, giving them a unique charm and elegance. Fences from glass are installed on balconies, terraces, balustrades and even spiral staircases. Handrails, glass handrails can be both straight and curved (mollirovannymi). As a rule, these are glass plates, which are strengthened between the metal pillars of stairs and fences. But glass fences can be self-supporting. In such constructions, the racks are completely missing, and the handrail is installed directly on the upper edge of the glass (if, of course, the handrail is generally provided with a design solution). In the latter case, glass with a thickness of 12 to 20 mm is used. Most often, glass is used in combination with stainless steel. Handrails, handrails in this case require a smaller number of racks, which visually greatly facilitates the construction. Fences from glass become elegant and transparent, not cluttering up space. For designers, glass fencing is just a godsend. But at the same time, such handrails, handrails retain their reliability, as a construction structure.
Glass railings, fences and balustrades look flawless in modern interiors. The main criteria for their design, as a rule, are reliability and safety. However, today these designs do not necessarily have to be a barrier to review and light. The use of glass not only solves a similar problem, but also gives the interior a modern refined look.
Compared with similar aluminum and plastic panels similar in terms of smoothness, as well as stainless steel panels, tempered glass has an important advantage: the glass sheet does not have curvatures even at significant dimensions (1.2 meters more). This is noticeable in the case where the structures are arranged in a row, forming a certain surface.
