The same but different

With striking design and flawless functionality, elevate your garden space with beautiful balustrades from Kestrel.


Glass balustrades have, in recent years, become a popular means of enhancing our outdoor spaces. Not least because they bring a striking and contemporary design to our homes, nor that they offer both safety and strength that you can rely upon, especially handy for those with little ones running around!

Kestrel Specialist Handrail Systems specialise in these, installing balustrades, Juliet balconies and privacy screens using 316-grade mirror-polished steel posts, which are particularly suited to the marine climate here in Cornwall. Combining these with toughened glass in-fills, the results are always spectacular.

They can also be fitted to different substrates, can be installed at different heights, and the balustrades can either be top or side-mounted, depending on your design preference. The glass itself comes in a range of options, including clear, satin or tinted, but what they all have in common is that they are 10mm thick and toughened, again providing you with the peace of mind that your new outdoor area is secure.

Other benefits of using balustrades include providing shelter in windy spots, as well as privacy, especially when using satin or tinted glass. You get the illusion of space in your garden, with light cascading through the glass, whilst retaining that all important privacy. It’s a win-win!

An excellent choice for hot tubs and barbeque areas, with the additional option of back-lighting helping to take you stylishly from day to night, if you’re looking to take your outdoor space to
the next level with a feature that’s as beautiful as it is functional, then the expert Kestrel team is on hand to help you achieve your vision.
