Mirrors play a significant role in everyone’s life. From the small bathroom vanity mirrors to the large mirror walls used in office design and fitness gyms, they are found in virtually any space designed for modern living, working or entertainment. One of the main qualities that ensures their diverse use is the variety of sizes and shapes in which they are available. Economy Glass Co. West Inc. is a leader in producing high clarity mirrors for residential use as well as large-size mirrors for corporate use.
Mirrors can be found in nearly every type of construction project – from high school stairwells to sophisticated rooftop lounges, luxury homes to hospitals. Just as diverse as their sites of installation, glass handrail and guardrail systems can be installed in a wide range of sizes, designs, and materials to best suit the function they provide. In this article, we detail the various elements architects, designers, and glaziers take into account when selecting the right handrail and guardrail systems for the job. In the industry, the terms handrail and guardrail are often paired together, but they actually refer to two separate types of installations. “Handrail” describes the support installed in staircases, ramps, and walkways, while “guardrail” is built as a structural barrier on balconies, terraces, bridges, and other open edges where individuals could fall and injure themselves. While support and safety are their primary functions, both handrail and guardrail are often designed to add aesthetic value to a space.
Mirrors are used in a variety of homes and businesses as a decorative element or purely for function. Custom mirrors can be made to fit any space, whether mounted flush to the wall, hung in a frame or on a vanity.
