Have you ever experienced the discomfort of being outdoors, only to be forced indoors because of unexpected wind? With New Zealand’s unique geography, the prevailing wind direction is generally westerly; however, many areas are exposed to cold southerly and at certain times of year annoying easterlies.  So rather than blocking your views and boxing the area in, glass can be a perfect solution for your windswept outdoor spaces. Glass windbreaks help you to make better use of your outdoor area, often allowing you to stay outdoors well into the evening.  Glass windbreaks can also form part of a balustrade installation. E.g. a 1.8m high at the end of deck or pool fence area to limit the effects of the prevailing winds for any home, versus the standard 1.0m and 1.2m standard installations.
