If you own a seafood restaurant which is located right by the ocean, you will want to make sure that your customers can sit outside to enjoy the sunshine and the sea air. The best way to do this is to create an outdoor balcony or seating area. When constructing this area, you will need to decide on the type of balustrade you wish to use. Below are 3 reasons you should opt for a glass balustrade.
A glass balustrade will provide unrestricted sea views
When people come to dine at a seafront restaurant, they typically expect the chance to view the ocean. If you opt for a metal or stone balustrade, those customers sat close to the edge will have a great view of the water, but the opaque bricks or metal will restrict the view of any patrons who are seated further back on the balcony or terrace. Installing a glass balustrade will allow everyone a clear view of the ocean. If you can advertise that diners can see the ocean from every table, you are likely to attract many more customers.
A glass balustrade is resistant to corrosion
The balustrades you install on your seafront restaurant are going to be exposed to two things, moisture and salt. This combination can lead to wooden or metal balustrades being affected by corrosion. A wooden balustrade may begin to swell as it absorbs moisture and may collect spores of mould. Metal balustrades may begin to rust as the salt water strips down the paint and attacks the metal underneath. The only way to prevent this damage to frequently apply a protective resin to the wood or metal. Thankfully, a glass balustrade is completely resistant to corrosion so do not require regular maintenance.
A glass balustrade can be quickly cleaned
Sea breezes can carry sand and other debris up from the beach and water. This dust and debris can quickly cover the balustrades you install on the balcony or terrace of your restaurant. If enough of this sand and debris builds up on the surface it could quickly make your terrace or balcony space look messy. Thankfully, a glass balustrade can be easily cleaned using a soft cloth and a bucket of warm water and liquid detergent. When the water is applied to the glass using the cloth, it will quickly lift any dust and debris away from the surface of the glass, leaving it looking great.
