Summer 2019 trends: Popular balustrade systems for gardens and pools

3 months ago 0 category Inspiration & Design

Balustrades are versatile to any landscape design. They can be used to highlight natural features, extend views, provide important health and safety features and so much more. Now is the perfect time to get your garden or pool summer ready by installing a bespoke designed balustrade or handrail system.

From the sleek modern look of a frameless glass balustrade to the more traditional style of aluminium railings, the sky is the limit when it comes to selecting a balustrade or handrail system for your garden or pool. Here are a few notable trends from SHS Products, the UK’s leader in balustrades and glass.


Go frameless for the perfect view

Frameless glass balustrades are popping up on balconies and in gardens across the UK. Installing glass systems, such as the frameless or clarionsystem, provide uninterrupted views that can increase property value, make your garden look bigger and help to section off parts of your garden without taking away from its natural beauty.


Decking balustrades with colourful options

A high quality balustrade or handrail system is the perfect complement to real wood or composite decking areas. Decking balustrade designs range from frameless glass systems to stainless steel frames to aluminium balustrades and handrails. If a bit of privacy is preferred, coloured glass options such as frosted, bronze and grey are top options.


Perfect glass balustrades for pools

Glass balustrades are a safe and stylish solution for private pools as well as pools on commercial properties. Adding a protective glass barrier helps to keep small children and pets safe from the water while making it easy to keep a safe eye on swimmers. Glass is also easy to maintain and resistant to pool chemicals.

Popular pool balustrade systems such as the sleek infinity, clarion and spigot systems compliment modern or traditional spaces and enclose your pool or private area in a non-obtrusive manner.
