What is a glass windscreen?

A glass windscreen for exterior spaces is a protective barrier made entirely or primarily of glass, designed to shield outdoor areas from wind, debris, and other environmental elements. It serves as a transparent or semi-transparent enclosure that allows for an unobstructed view of the surroundings while providing a barrier against the elements.

Glass windscreens are commonly used in outdoor spaces such as balconies, terraces, patios, and rooftop areas. They offer a modern and aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional barriers like walls or fences, as they maintain a sense of openness and preserve the visual connection with the outdoors.

These windscreens are engineered to be durable and weather-resistant, ensuring they can withstand various climatic conditions. They are available in different styles and configurations, allowing for customization to suit specific design preferences and functional requirements.

Metropolis overview

With an ultra-slim 3/4” face trim, the CRL Metropolis™ Post Windscreen System produces expansive glass spans that deliver seamless transparency and contemporary elegance while meeting code requirements. Its purposeful, low-profile aesthetic lets the view take center stage while providing needed wind protection and safety. An 8-foot maximum system height offers the option to create a striking glass wall.
