Glass Banister

As you visit around your Cambridge neighbourhood you may have noticed that many home now have glass banisters and have been wondering why anyone would choose glass for a banister – isn’t it fragile and liable to break, possibly sending someone plunging down? Glass banisters are becoming quite popular and they add a great finish to any home. Unlike traditional wooden banisters, glass brings out the overall design of a home beautifully and comes with several important benefits.
You can incorporate glass banisters of any design in your home. Whether you have a simple, straight staircase of a winding one of intricate design a glass banister will help bring it out beautifully. As for it breaking and causing accidents in the home, glass banisters are made out of a special kind of glass that is hardened to prevent easy breakage. This kind of glass will only break under extreme pressure and when it does it does shatter into shards that can cause injury but rather into pebbles.
Another benefit of glass banisters is that they are easy to clean and maintain. If you have a wooden banister in your home you know that every few years you have to sand it and re-polish it as it begins to lose its lustre. Not glass – it will look as good as new for years to come and it doesn’t require much cleaning. All you need to do is wipe it down with a wet, soapy cloth and then buff with a soft cloth. Glass banisters also last a long time – with proper care they can last for a decade and more.
