StairSupplies™ is excited to announce the arrival of our glass railing system. Glass Railing is a top choice for both view preservation and safety. In exterior applications, glass is highly effective as a windbreaker, making it extremely popular on waterfront properties. While it helps to block harsher winds, the small gaps between the glass and the posts and handrail allow you to enjoy mild breezes. The clear panels give the illusion of invisible railing as the natural views shine through. Treated glass requires very little maintenance other than occasional washing with soap and water or another glass cleaner.
About Glass Railing
Glass Railing is smooth and the panels are fewer than 2” from the posts, making the system safe for young children and pets.
Best of all, our stainless steel posts and glass clips for Glass Railing are designed to make installation simple. After the post foot cover is placed over the base plate, the clips can simply be screwed onto the pre-drilled posts. Each clip is individually packaged with the screws needed to mount them to the posts. Our glass clips attach to any of our stainless steel post styles, and can be powder coated to match the rest of your system. Glass clips are sold independent of the posts, but it is easy to calculate how many clips you will need for your project. For each end post, you will need 2 glass clips, while corner posts and center posts will each use 4. Posts for glass can be spaced up to 4’ apart.
Manufactured out of 316 stainless steel, our glass clips are strong, and will hold up against the elements. They are 2” tall by 2 ½” wide and can accommodate ½” and ⅜” glass. We recommend using ⅜” glass for most residential projects and ½” glass for commercial projects and applications where added strength and durability is desired.
While we manufacture posts and clips for Glass Railing, we are not a glass manufacturer or supplier. There are many excellent, local glass suppliers across the country who can provide you with beautiful glass and quality service. We strongly suggest finding a local supplier who can easily measure and supply the glass for your system. It is best to bring the glass supplier on site after the posts have been installed so the measurements for the glass panels will be exact.
Glass is a safe and stunning infill that can greatly enhance the look and feel of your deck or home.
