The balustrade is mounted on the edge of the element it secures, and the safety of those using it depends upon its durability. It also fulfills a decorative, even ornamental function, and often provides a highly interesting and unique impression of the interior in which it's installed. Currently the balustrade most commonly applied is one made up of posts, which comprise its construction, fulfilling elements between the posts, and a banister (handrail). The fulfilling elements can be solid, such as glass, or openwork – newels, for example. Exceptionally fashionable at present is a full-glass balustrade, comprised of just a glass panel of suitable technical parameters, with discreet fastenings on its lower part. It provides safety and ambiance, as well as imbuing the space in which it's mounted with a super-modern look, brightening it and adding style and elegance.
