7 Advantages Of Glass Balustrading Vs Wire Balustrading

The option of adding a balustrade to your home will inevitably mean you having to make several choices, and one decision that is almost certain to crop up is whether to opt for glass balustrading or wire balustrading. Let us say from the outset that both are excellent options and whichever you choose will make give your home an improved appearance and functionality.

However, rather than simply tossing a coin to determine whether it is glass or wire balustrading, you should seriously consider how they compare to each other. In particular, you should compare them against seven extremely important criteria. To save you time, we have done so below.


Many homeowners have children and pets and therefore safety is a top priority for them when choosing balustrading. Here glass balustrading wins comfortably given that it can provide a greater impregnable barrier to children and pets accessing areas that might be dangerous for them, such as glass pool fencing. On the other hand,  wire balustrading has multiple gaps which small children and pets can easily get through.


Appearance is often in the eye of the beholder, but even a quick comparison of how glass panels and wires appear will tell you that glass invariably wins the comparison. In addition, most glass balustrading suppliers can offer you a choice of glass colours and some even have etched designs. As for wires, there are few if any options for styling or colours.
