Balustrades

ssb1-1080x800

Balustrades are fences or railings, consisting of a set of identical vertical posts (balusters) supporting a horizontal railing. They are common in many architectural designs, being incorporated into everything from staircases and balconies to pool fences. They can be as aesthetically pleasing as they are functional.

 

While it may be necessary to install the balustrade as a safety barrier they can often be best thought of as a way of defining space. Think of them as walls between different rooms. We rarely have houses that are all one room, so we need not have gardens or other areas as one large space.

 

Else, we might install a glass fence, which provides a protective barrier without seeming to intrude on the space.
