Creating private outdoor living spaces can be problematic in an urban setting. Do you live in the city, and desperately need some privacy for your back yard oasis? Or maybe it’s more about wind protection if you are in the country?
I get it if you don’t get along with your neighbor…actually even if you do get along, maybe they just don’t need to see what you’re up to in the hot tub, or you don’t have the time to make small talk about the weather every time you walk outside to start the barbecue No judgement here!
Windeck is the neighborhood smalltalk eraser, creating private glass railing back yard spaces like this one to enhance your time at home. We used 12 mm tempered Matelux privacy glass to create privacy from neighbors and oncoming traffic, with matching art in the glass to complement the deck inlay. This makes the privacy area an attractive visual focus, rather than looking like a ship crashed into your house. All glass was supported by beautiful 4×4 powder-coated aluminum pillars, supplying the strength needed to go almost eight feet high, complemented with a double four-inch arbor to support the enormous system against high wind loads.
Another benefit to constructing any privacy panel or railing in powder-coated aluminum and glass is that aluminum will never rot, rust, or decay. Aluminum is three times stronger than most local wood species, making high privacy screens much safer and more secure, to stand up to winds (not to mention rambunctious kids). Tempered glass offers the same benefits: strength and low maintenance. Glass will never rot or decay; just a yearly cleaning will usually suffice.
