Decking balustrade options

Adding a balustrade to your garden deck is a great way to finish the look and make your outdoor space stand out. Balustrades can also improve the safety of your deck, particularly if it is raised above the rest of your garden.

We offer a number of attractive decking balustrade options here at TimberTech - which one will you choose?

Glass balustrade without handrail

Glass Balustrade (No Handrail)

Made of toughened glass and marine-grade stainless steel, this stylish decking balustrade is a very popular option amongst TimberTech customers. It looks absolutely fantastic, particularly alongside our more contemporary decking colours such as Silver Maple.

Our steel and glass balustrade is also available with a top handrail that rounds off the design rather wonderfully. The posts and handrail are made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel, so your balustrade will require just as little maintenance as your TimberTech deck itself!

 

Frameless glass balustrade

If your tastes lean towards the more minimalist end of the design spectrum, our frameless glass balustrade system will suit you right down to the ground. Those toughened glass panels are unfettered by steel posts and rails, allowing them to provide the perfect finishing touch without obstructing your view whatsoever. We also supply privacy glass if you'd rather people couldn't see through your decking balustrade.

 

Cable rail system

Cable Railing System

Finally, if glass isn't your thing, we'd like to introduce you to our best-selling cable rail system. This is a very sturdy option with a slightly more unusual look; the whole construction is made from 316 stainless steel, and the threaded holes are flow drilled for the strongest possible results.

We've often trumpeted the merits of our glass balustrade system. The clean lines and spotless steel posts are perfect for a contemporary, cutting-edge garden design, and the pristine glass panels do nothing to compromise your view. With outstanding sturdiness and sublime style, a balustrade really is the ultimate decking accessory.

Only one question remains: do you want a handrail with your balustrade? The handrail certainly has its uses, and it does cap the balustrade off quite nicely, but if we're going on looks alone, we'd opt for the balustrade without a handrail every time. Without that shiny steel rail on top, the gleaming glass is able to take centre stage, and it's amazing how beautiful those panels are. They'll bring an extra helping of beauty to your back garden, and since they're transparent, you don't have to worry about blocking the light our your own view.

The glass we use in our balustrades is ultra-tough, and since it's 10mm thick, very few things are capable of shattering it. No need to worry about stray footballs, foul weather conditions, or general wear and tear - the gorgeous glass (and sturdy stainless steel) will overcome them all!

Glass balustrade with handrail

Generally speaking, composite decking is designed to look like nice, natural wood. Our deck boards mimic the grain of hardwood timber very closely indeed, and this is great news for people who want a traditional look in their outdoor living space.

But what about the people who want a slightly sleeker, more contemporary style? Do we have anything to offer them? Well, yes, we do: our stainless steel glass balustrade system. Not only does this option give you a sturdy barrier around the perimeter of your garden deck, it will also bring its appearance right into the 21st century. The balustrade is made from marine-grade stainless steel and pristine toughened glass; these materials come together to create a fantastically smooth and modern look.

The real beauty of our balustrade lies with the glass panels; they don't block the light, so you'll still have a great view of your garden. The steel posts and handrail add a sleek, stylish edge, ensuring that everyone's eyes are on your great new deck.

Glass balustrades are a stunning alternative to other types of handrails and balconies. We think glass balustrades provide a modern and chic solution to cordoning off areas of your decking. There is something very adaptable about using glass panels for your balustrade as they do not overpower the look of your home in anyway – the subtle way in which they provide barriers means these would look just as good on an ageing house in the countryside, as they would on an ultra-modern apartment.

As well as offering you limitless style and chic, glass balustrades look particularly good against decking. Here at Timbertech we are the decking specialists after all, so it only makes sense we would turn our attention to products that enhance and complement composite decking. The combination of the quality wood decking against the backdrop of glass and stainless steel makes you feel like you’re on a luxury yacht, or on the terrace of an exclusive establishment.

Glass balustrades then are visually impeccable, not to mention the fact they provide you with all the unspoilt views your garden has to offer, or the gift of light and space in more modest accommodations.

What these balustrades also boast is some serious quality to match their aesthetics. All the posts involved are made from satin polished marine grade stainless steel; the glass used is 10mm ultra strong toughened glass; the brackets used to attach the glass to the posts are cast from a single piece of metal ensuring maximum stability. These glass balustrades also come in a modular system which makes easy to design to your specifications, and fairly simple to install.

It seems these glass balustrades really do have it all! They let you enjoy the beauty of your space without inhibiting the view in anyway – or in smaller areas they give you the illusions of far-stretching space, as well as letting plenty of light in. As they also look very good, and are made using the highest quality materials, these glass balustrades really are the clear choice. 

Frameless balustrades offer a completely unhinged handrail system that produces sumptuous results. With our frameless balustrades you can safely cordon off your decking or balcony without compromising the view of the rest of your garden. We sell a range of stunning balustrades that can transform any outdoor space, take away the frames though and you’re left with an even more impressive spectacle!

For those of you who don’t know, we here at Timbertech specialise in composite decking, as well as frameless balustrades and more. What we also like to offer our expertise in is framed balustrades, cable rail systems, and deck lights; from this list we hope you can begin to see the emerging theme and focus behind our products. It is not just enough for us to provide you with an extensive range of the finest composite decking, we also want to help you transform your decking area as a whole to get the most out of it!

If balustrades complement your balcony or area of decking beautifully, then frameless balustrades help it shine! We have a lot of time for our handrail systems, but we also believe that certain spaces demand the far-reaching visual effect created when you take the frame away. Notice the picture we have chosen for this article, here you can see how the frameless balustrades provides a safe barrier for this area of decking. Where the frameless comes into its own is by not inhibiting that glorious vista in any way - you just wouldn’t get the same effect if your balustrade had handrails!

And don’t worry if you do not have a picture-postcard view to work with, this balustrade works just as well in smaller areas as it allows lights through, and maximises the appearance of space.

As well as giving the gift of an enhanced and unspoilt view, our frameless balustrades come with the same quality features you’d expect to find with all of our products. Our balustrades are made from marine-grade and corrosion-resistant stainless steel, as well as having superior strength 10mm toughened glass. All fittings are concealed with a quality stainless steel base plate to ensure your view remains untarnished!

 We hope we have made a case for what frameless balustrades can offer you and your outside space. These frameless balustrades do go beautifully with our high-quality decking, but where they really shine is in giving you an unspoilt view of your outdoor living space.
