How Does Modern Glass Railing Improve Overall Design of a Building? Your building design offers a definitive description of your company's self image. What image does your business project when employees, clients, customers and competitors enter your offices? A company with a cutting edge product or service needs a forward thinking image to support its marketing efforts. Your offices are a major part of your company's image. If yours is a contemporary product or service, you need a contemporary design for your offices. Glass railings in multi-flight offices with stair cases are a striking accent that defines the modern look. This is especially effective when the glass railings are installed on open higher floors overlooking the lower levels. There's a sense of unity when employees stand on a level divided only by a clear glass railing. The railings offer an expansive view of the environment to everyone. With the glass allowing the rays of sunlight to pass throughout the space and reflecting the artificial light, the whole space is brightened. The modern office that utilizes the effect of glass to create rooms and outline areas, in effect creates a uniquely inviting ambience for all who enter the environment. Light permeates the entire office instead of being absorbed into the solid walls defining space. Glass railings only serve to continue this theme throughout the space. Office designers can choose glass with metal supports or frameless glass railings. The frameless railings have no interruptions for the eye. They need no other support than the posts on balconies or stairs. Tempered or laminated safety glass ranging in thicknesses of 3/8" to 2" is used to construct the railings. If it should ever break, the broken pieces would be small pieces, not sharp shards. Tempered glass is specifically designed for use in construction; therefore, its characteristics meet the standards of the local building codes. The look of the glass varies based on the finish of the glass. The glass can be clear, sandblasted or textured. The railings come with the option of being frameless or the glass can be secured with chrome, stainless steel, bronze, aluminum or brass metal frames, if preferred. The final look of your space will be determined by many other factors in addition to your use of glass railings, but that feature will definitely be an eye-catching detail. It will allow the free flow of light, both natural and artificial throughout the space. The addition of glass railings will provide a sense of oneness and create a tasteful modern theme to your overall office design.
