There are complete sets online that not only deliver inferior metal for less than 200 euros for a three-meter-long balcony parapet. On closer inspection, the alleged glass is also just a plastic sheet, which soon turns yellow and becomes brittle. Therefore, a little research is required if a really cheap and high-quality balcony railing is to be purchased.

Recognize clues

Stainless steel coatings and thin glass are indications of inferior quality. You should also pay attention to the weight of the stainless steel elements. The glass should of course be laminated safety glass, something else is actually not allowed with real glass. The thickness of the VS glass should be at least eight millimeters.

Due to the glass and some high-quality stainless steel pillars, the balcony railing can be significantly heavier than your old railing. In this case, plastic filling is perhaps better than VS glass.
