Although glass looks fragile, it’s very strong and safe

For example, because of its transparency, a glass staircase seems to float and also allows light to filter through. It’s very similar for glass walls as well. Glass staircase walls make excellent additions to old and historic structures which often include dark and gloomy spaces. The glass even allows architecture and design to come through and doesn’t block the views. These staircase walls are the perfect way to illuminate dark interiors and they’re excellent for homes with skylights.
