Designing Glass Railings

Glass railings and partitions are always a great choice for opening up any darkened spaces. There are many different options available to choose from when creating your very own glass railing design. Glass railings can be installed and anchored down in a variety of methods; here are a few of those options for glass railings.

Glass Inlay Railings

Glass inlay railings utilize stainless steel glass clamps to anchor the glass panels in place. They are anchored in place by installing two stainless steel glass clamps onto each side of every post. The post’s can be either top or side-mounted to the staircase. Glass clamps can also be installed directly onto the staircase without including stainless steel posts. For glass inlay designs, glass clamps are available in a variety of custom shapes, sizes, styles, and finishes. So, keep in mind the endless possibilities you can achieve by focusing on the design details.

Glass Standoff Railings

For this option, the glass railings are anchored down by utilizing a stainless steel standoff anchor system. From mirror polished to brushed finish, standoff anchors come in a variety of styles and sizes in diameter. Standoff’s are typically anchored directly to the side of the treads or hidden behind drywall. They can be chosen in many different finishes, such as mirror polished or brushed stainless steel.

Frameless Glass Railings

Frameless glass railings are an excellent choice if you are looking to achieve more of a clean and contemporary look. Choosing frameless glass railings is a great way to allow much more natural sunlight to flood any darkened spaces, creating a bright and airy ambiance. Whether your staircase has open riser treads or a second floor overlook, frameless glass railings can be installed on any type of staircase. When installed, the glass panels are anchored by utilizing a stainless steel standoff anchor system. They are later covered with drywall, to give the illusion of a glass railing emerging from the floor. If you are looking to renovate your residential or commercial space into modern times, consider a frameless glass railing design for your space. Whether you are remodeling an existing railing or designing a new second floor guardrail, consider a frameless glass railing design for your commercial or residential space.
