Handrails For Terraces

Handrails for Terrace Balustrades

At SMART we offer a wide range of handrails in different sizes and profiles. Frameless balustrades without a handrail are also an excellent option for glass terraces, to ensure virtually unbroken views out onto the surrounding area and create an ‘infinity balcony’ experience.

Glass Options for Terraces

Regardless of where or how you would like to use your glass terrace, at SMART we offer a variety of styles to choose from. Depending on the application, we will advise you on the most suitable options when it comes to glass – we can provide toughened, structural or plain glass balustrades in a selection of finishes. Our most popular option is clear glass, but we also offer “ultra-clear glass”, which offers pristine clarity thanks to its low-iron content. We also offer frosted glass for added privacy, as well as grey tinted, bronze tinted, blue and green glass.

    Terrace FAQs

    Terraces are more of a flat area that can be on the side of a building or a roof, while balconies are usually elevated platforms that are always attached to a room. Balconies tend to be smaller, and are used to just expand a room, whereas terraces are able to span large areas, but both allow more access to the outside world and offer various uses. Balconies  tend to be a much more private space too, whereas terraces are able to be a public space, especially if located at the top of a building.

    The short answer is – it depends. If you’re planning to create a roof terrace for an existing property, you almost certainly will require planning permission before getting started. This is because adding a roof terrace requires careful consideration when it comes to the structural integrity of an existing property, and you will also need to be mindful if the terrace will be overlooking neighbouring properties. For new-build residential and commercial properties, these considerations can of course be taken into account at the design stage. For ground floor terraces or patios, planning permission will not be required in most cases as they are classed as a Permitted Development. Please double check before attempting to have the project started if you require planning permission, as it can vary depending on certain variables of your property and area.

    Living spaces are now worth their weight in gold, making more and more people want to install them. We recommend using a professional installation company such as ourselves, to make sure the job is done correctly, safely and abides by building regulations. However, if you are able to do such a job yourself, please keep in mind the following:

    • Make sure to check all planning permissions and regulations are being abided by before starting, making sure you comply with the maximum and minimum requirements and rules.
    • Always have help, it is necessary to have a second person keeping eyes on the project and being there to help you, especially if a ladder is required and handling tools.
    • Ensure you have all necessary safety equipment and tools.
    • Measure the area you’re going to be working on multiple times, this will help avoid mistakes that could result in a loss of money and time.
