Glass Railings for Decks, Staircases and Balconies across Calgary



Thinking of renovating? Building a new house? Are you tired of the stub wall or outdated spindles lining your hallway or stairs? Economy Glass can create a custom glass railing system that will add privacy, windscreen protection, and beauty to your property. From staircases and decks to attractive balconies, our Calgary crews are ready when you are.

What about the outside? Aluminum pickets looking tired and old-fashioned? Sick of wood railing maintenance? New glass railing makes an incredible transformation to any home. Glass adds a modern touch while opening up your living space. Outside, it removes the hard visual barrier between you and the outdoor environment.

Interior and exterior glass railings change the merely functional to the visually appealing. Traditional railing often looks heavy and basic, but with the use of glass, you can dramatically and simply increase the visual appeal and aesthetic qualities of your home.

At Economy Glass, we offer a wide array of residential glass railing options that provide the full safety of traditional railing or stub walls. Our products also create an elegant and open feel at a remarkably affordable cost.

Our railings are custom fabricated so you can:

  • Pick your rail style and colour from a large selection of samples
  • Order the height and length needed for your project
  • Choose a style of glass, even etched glass or tinted glass can be chosen


Come visit our showroom to learn of your many options – which vary dramatically based on budget, location and desired materials.


Whatever the need, we have the design capability, the manufacturing options, and the trained technicians to make your home stand out – both inside and out!

Mirrors

A mirror is an object that reflects light in such a way that, the reflected light preserves many or most of the detailed physical characteristics of the original light, called specular reflection. This is different from other light-reflecting objects that do not preserve much of the original wave signal other than color and diffuse reflected light, such as flat-white paint.

There are many types of glass mirrors, each representing a different manufacturing process and reflection type.

An aluminium glass mirror is made of a float glass manufactured using vacuum coating, i.e. aluminium powder is evaporated (or "sputtered") onto the exposed surface of the glass in a vacuum chamber and then coated with two or more layers of waterproof protective paint.

A low aluminium glass mirror is manufactured by coating silver and two layers of protective paint on the back surface of glass. A low aluminium glass mirror is very clear, light transmissive, smooth, and reflects accurate natural colors. This type of glass is widely used for framing presentations and exhibitions in which a precise color representation of the artwork is truly essential or when the background color of the frame is predominantly white.

A safety glass mirror is made by adhering a special protective film to the back surface of a silver glass mirror, which prevents injuries in case the mirror is broken. This kind of mirror is used for furniture, doors, glass walls, commercial shelves, or public areas.

A silkscreen printed glass mirror is produced using inorganic color ink that prints patterns through a special screen onto glass. Various colors, patterns, and glass shapes are available. Such a glass mirror is durable and more moisture resistant than ordinary printed glass and can serve for over 20 years. This type of glass is widely used for decorative purposes (e.g., on mirrors, table tops, doors, windows, kitchen chop boards, etc.).

A silver glass mirror is an ordinary mirror, coated on its back surface with silver, which produces images by reflection. This kind of glass mirror is produced by coating a silver, copper film and two or more layers of waterproof paint on the back surface of float glass, which perfectly resists acid and moisture. A silver glass mirror provides clear and actual images, is quite durable, and is widely used for furniture, bathroom and other decorative purposes.

Increased SAFETY WITH SECURITY FILM

Splintered, flying glass is one of the dangerous consequences of, both natural and man-made, disasters. Our films are specifically designed to hold broken glass in place, lessening the chance of injury and property damage. It also makes forced entry more difficult for would-be vandals and burglars, which is especially important for retail establishments.

Has your vehicle’s glass been damaged? We can help.
