6 Ways Glass Railings Can Enhance Your View of Vancouver

Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities in Canada. The magnificent mountain backdrop, the stunning ocean views, the city skyline. If you’re fortunate enough to have a great view of the beauty that Vancouver has to offer, why not make the most of it with glass railings?


1. The perfect end to a long day

Enjoying an unobstructed view of the city is the perfect way to end a long day. With nothing blocking your view you’ll be able to sit outside on your deck or balcony and enjoy a cold beverage while you relax and take in the scenery. Glass can make your outdoor living space more enjoyable whether you’re having a barbeque, entertaining guests or just soaking up the sun.


2. Focus on the little details
When it comes to designing the perfect deck, it’s the little details that can take even the most ordinary balcony railings to the next level. Choose a design that best suits your tastes and lifestyle and then select unique hardware pieces to hold your glass railings in place for a one-of-a-kind look you won’t see anywhere else.


3. Easy to maintain
Glass requires very little maintenance and will retain its beautiful appearance for many years. Unlike wood and some other materials, mildew growth is rarely an issue, and clean-up is as simple as a bucket of warm, soapy water.


4. Beautiful appearance
With a wide range of options to choose from, it’s easy to find glass railings to complement the look and style of your home. From tinted glass, to an array of colours and finishes for other components, glass can lend its beautiful appearance to any front porch, balcony or pool enclosure.


5. Sleek, sturdy and safe
Not only can a glass railing provide you and your guests with an unobstructed view of Vancouver’s beautiful skyline but you’ll also have peace of mind knowing that your railings are incredibly safe. At Riverside Ironworks Canada in Vancouver, our glass railings are constructed using high-quality tempered glass for strength and durability that you can count on.


6. Enjoy your privacy
Other materials, like wood or PVC, are great at providing privacy but they obstruct your view of the city’s scenery and can block out all the light. Glass privacy panels can be used to provide you with privacy for your outdoor space, without destroying your view.


If you want to make the most out of your outdoor space, upgrade to the seamless, stylish look that only glass railings can provide.
