Recently built a house with a good sized alfresco area. We intentionally left part of the alfresco uncovered as a bbq area/outdoor kitchen but wanted to put a glass balustrade around the whole alfresco as it is elevated. This would mean the balustrade would run right behind the outdoor kitchen.
Any issues with running a glass balustrade right behind the outdoor kitchen? Some glass balustrades have exploded in heat (the 40+ Degrees days) so was curious if anyone has a similar setup and has any issues.

I would pick a BBQ on wheels that could be moved away from potentially troublesome Building Materials
Such as Glass, SIP and PE filled materials. Apart from shattering you don't want to burn your house or apartment down

Not sure one on wheels is an option as my wife has her sights set on a particular outdoor kitchen. That being the case, maybe we should just stop the glass at each side of the countertop rather than go behind it. There would be at least a foot clearance between the bbq and then the glass if we did that.

you could always put screens either side of the kitchen as a feature instead of the panels saving having to put the panels behind the kitchen.. all depends on how you are making the kitchen? ie do you ever want to be able to get behind it etc

Thank you. We are now thinking to include the roof in the balcony, and yes will make it look better. Also even if we don't use it often, I think it will prevent to…
