What are semi-framed balustrades?

Semi-framed balustrades are a type of railing system used in building design and construction to provide safety and support on elevated structures such as balconies, terraces, and staircases. We supply and fit semi-framed balustrades in Cornwall for homeowners hoping to complement those dreamy Cornish views.

Semi-framed balustrades typically consist of a combination of framed and frameless glass panels held in place by a metal or aluminum frame. The metal or aluminum frame usually surrounds the edges of the glass panel, providing stability and durability. The term “semi-framed” refers to the fact that only some parts of the balustrade are framed, while other parts remain frameless. This design allows for a greater sense of openness and visibility than fully framed balustrades, while still providing the necessary support and protection.

Semi-framed balustrades are popular in modern architecture and can be found in both residential and commercial settings. They are often used to create a sleek and contemporary look, while still maintaining a high level of safety and security.

What are the benefits of semi-framed balustrades in Cornwall?

Semi-framed balustrades offer a number of benefits to homes in Cornwall, including:

Enhanced Safety

Semi-framed balustrades are designed to provide safety and prevent falls. The combination of glass and metal provides a sturdy and strong support structure, which can withstand the pressure of people leaning against it.

Improved Aesthetics

Semi-framed balustrades are aesthetically pleasing and can add an elegant touch to any building or home. They offer a modern and contemporary look, while still maintaining a classic and timeless appearance.

Increased Durability

Semi-framed balustrades are highly durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions. They are also resistant to rust and corrosion, making them a long-lasting investment.

Easy Maintenance

Semi-framed balustrades are easy to maintain and clean. The glass panels can be easily wiped down with a damp cloth, while the metal frame can be cleaned with a mild detergent and water.

Improved Light and View

The glass panels used in semi-framed balustrades allow for an unobstructed view of the surrounding area, while also allowing natural light to filter through. This can help create a brighter and more inviting atmosphere in a space.


Here in Cornwall, many of us are lucky enough to have wonderful views of the coast or countryside. Our semi-framed glass balustrades give an amazing uninterrupted view of the scenery beyond. If a fully framed or frameless balustrade is your preference, we can supply and fit large panes of glass for a cleaner design with fewer posts to obstruct your view.
