Sample Glass Handrail Glass railing is a system of metal railing components for use with 1/2" or 3/4" tempered glass panels as structural balusters.  Railings are supplied in aluminum, bronze, stainless steel, nickel-silver, and oak acrylic/wood.  End caps, internal splice connectors, and corner bends are available for most sections 
as well as a vinyl protective insert to shield the edges of the glass panes from direct contact with the molding.

Aluminum shoe moldings are designed to support a design load of 300 lbs. applied at any point at the top of a railing up to 42" in height.  Test results are available upon request.  Mechanical properties of glass may be verified with supplier of glass panels.

Resilient setting block supports and cushions the lower edge of the glass while centering it in the channel of the shoe molding.  Glass panels are set in the shoe molding using a filler selected at the discretion of the architect or fabricator.
