Doing it with Glass and Style

Posted On 6th July 2016

Whether you have a stunning estate or a modest garden, isn't it lovely to be able to enjoy it even if you are only having a cup of tea on the balcony? The problem is that there are so many designs that just aren't conducive to letting you enjoy your outdoor space in that way.

Of course, there are some designs that are created to combat precisely that problem. After all, who wants to lose half of their scenic view just because they decided to sit down? Poor Fido here can't see a darn thing and has to be content with a little sliver of sunlight. His owner, on the other hand, has to stand up if he wants to see anything more interesting than the tops of light posts.

It all comes down to your imagination. We ship our railing systems anywhere in the world, and the big advantage of glass is that you can buy the required tempered glass locally and save on the shipping costs. Whether you are going to tackle it as a DIY project or have a contractor to manage the installation for you, Lido Designs® Company can give you the best possible system. Lido is the #1 Seller of decorative railings in the USA. As a North American manufacturer and distributor, we offer an immense variety from architectural components to closet hardware.

Classy Glass

Would you not love to have a view that is 98% unobstructed? Safe, solid, secure, and clearly no impediment to enjoying your fabulous view! So much better than an unattractive, opaque steel barrier, and unlike an open latticework or wrought iron, it provides significant protection from the wind. A glass railing system is an ultimate solution!


There is another reason to consider glass aside from pure aesthetics—safety. By law, you are required to have a protective barrier surrounding your pool to keep people and pets safe. Traditionally people have felt obliged to use a chain-link fence, because no matter how ugly it is, we can still see through it. Some use wooden fencing, sacrificing visibility for aesthetics.

The Better Way

But let's be honest: being able to see that your children (or guests) are safe is an immense relief to all concerned. Do away with squinting or peering around obstructions and hoping you're not missing something vitally important with a frameless fence solution. Glass is a great solution and we can safely conclude that glass is clearly better.

Sometimes it's simply the enjoyment factor. While frameless does give you a sense of openness, despite its strength and durability, some people are simply better reassured psychologically if they have a top-rail; we can do whatever is necessary to make you feel comfortable—and there is definitely something to be said for the clean aesthetic lines of polished stainless steel. The fact that it is so easy to install is just an added bonus.

It's up to You!

There are innumerable choices such as Polished Brass, Clear Coat Brass, Polished Chrome and Polished Stainless Steel, Satin Stainless Steel, and Galvanized Steel. And, of course, you're not confined to glass because railing systems come in dozens of other designs including webnet infill panels that provide great visibility or even ball railings in gleaming brass.

A cable-frame system can easily support your open-design sightlines while providing a secure and safe system for family or visitors.

The Takeaway

You will find our products installed just about everywhere you look. We have both indoor and outdoor systems, and they are installed in homes, residential buildings, commercial buildings, governmental offices, hospitals, hotels, marinas, and throughout industries all over the country and internationally.

Our systems are incredibly versatile. Despite being of fixed design, you can make them do virtually anything you desire.

As we said at the beginning, it's all up to your imagination! What will you create?
