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!

If there's one thing that's guaranteed to put smiles on faces here at TimberTech HQ, it's a stunning set of photos from a job well done. Simon Kiff of Pembrokeshire recently added our cable rail system to his garden deck, and the pictures we took of the completed project really are outstanding.

Mr Kiff already had a deck in place, but he decided that our steel cable rail would make the perfect finishing touch. We're inclined to agree - sleek stainless steel makes the perfect companion for those modern grey deck boards. Particularly impressive is the fact that Simon installed the cable rail himself, which is testament to both his own aptitude as a handyman and the easy-to-use design of our cable rail system. Install it without wasting money on workmen!

Our cable rail system is superbly sturdy. It's made from corrosion-resistant, marine grade stainless steel, so you can rest assured that your handrail will never rust or give way. It's also worth noting that the posts come with base plate covers to give a flawless finish and hide those unsightly fixings that might otherwise compromise your deck's appearance. The rail offers both safety and style; if, like Simon, you have a deck that is raised above ground, the cable rail system will minimise the likelihood of an accident, and the barrier will still look magnificent even if you're not worried about nasty falls.

We think that Mr Kiff's new and improved garden deck looks absolutely amazing, complementing his house perfectly and giving him a great view of the lawn beyond (that's another great thing about the cable rail - it doesn't obstruct the view too much!) We wish him many enjoyable days out on the deck, and hope that his beautiful photos have inspired some of you to follow suit!

Whether you'd like to add a deck to your home or just a cable rail system to your existing garden deck, we at TimberTech would love to hear from you. Give us a call on 029 2037 1584, or email info@timbertechuk.co.uk to discuss your project with a member of our team.

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.

There is nothing quite like some elegant decking balustrades to complete the look of your garden. Our broad range of garden decking has something to please all tastes, and all come with exceptional levels of quality and craftsmanship. All you need to do is think about what material or style will best suit the décor of your outdoor living space, and we’ll take care of the rest!

Our first offering of decking balustrades are the Glass Balustrade, these provide an ultra-modern addition to any decked area. Not only do you get an extremely contemporary looking handrail, but as they’re glass your view is not going to be spoiled in any way!

The next type of decking balustrades we can offer you is the Ornamental Handrail! This handrail is an ideal partner to your Timbertech decking as they both enjoy all the benefits of our composite material. This means you can still have that clean and striking natural wood look, but you won’t have to waste your valuable time maintaining it every year! As it’s available in three different shades you can choose whether you want to complement or contrast your decking for effect.

RadianceRail is our other form of decking balustrades that would go exquisitely well with all our flooring. You can choose from either a classic black or coastal white colour that is going to match any shade of decking. The finish on these rails is absolutely flawless – it will look like you have spent hours maintaining and embellishing them! Because they’re made using our famous composite, however, all you need to worry about it sitting back and enjoying the view.

We really think we have something to offer all tastes and preferences. If you are opting for ourTimbertech flooring, then why not go all out and do them justice with our decking balustrades? Go on, do it properly, with Timbertech.


Our cable railings are perhaps the most modern way in which you can add handrails to your decking. Cable railings provide a superbly sleek and subtle framework to your handrails that of course comes with Timbertech’s exceptional level of quality. If you’re looking for an effortlessly stylish way to complement your decking, we suggest these railings are the best way to go.

Sometimes, when a product of such style and chic is presented to us, we cannot help but think the quality has been compromised in some way. This is not the case with our cable railings as we use only the most superior materials available to us. Take the steel posts we use for an example, we use marine-grade 316 stainless steel – not only is this extremely strong and corrosion-resistant, but it is going to fair very well with all the British weather can throw at it!

The brackets used to attach the cable railings are made from a single cast which ensures a high level of stability. Our attention to detail and pursuit for quality even led us to make the baseplates (which cover the fixings) using a superior steel material.

The cables themselves use a far thicker material than inferior systems which can dent easily. We also use threaded holes in our posts, as well flow-drilling our steel handrails – this may sound technical, but what it basically means is you’re left with a far stronger fixing than if taps were used as they can wear loose over time.

Your finished result is a cable railing system that is built as well as it looks. This is going to be of great comfort to you as you’re not going to want to get rid of them anytime soon. What our railings give you is an incredibly simple, unobtrusive concept that packs a real stylish and contemporary punch. Plus, you’re certainly not going to hinder any stunning views through these, are you?
