Laminated Glass Railings – Exterior

Glass railings are a great selection for creating a clean, airy ambiance to any residential or commercial space. When designing glass railings for exterior balconies, whether it be for residential or commercial spaces, the type of materials chosen should be designed to withstand the outdoor elements.

When implementing glass into your design, it is imperative to select the correct type of glass for your project. If you are looking to install glass railings onto an exterior space, laminated glass is highly recommended. In the event where the glass is shattered, laminated glass holds in place by an inter-layer between two layers of glass. This type of glass allows the shattered glass panel to stay intact, which is especially ideal for exterior spaces. When installing laminated glass to your exterior railings, a stainless steel cap rail is often top mounted to the glass panels for added rigidity. To anchor the laminated glass panels, we utilize a top mounted aluminum base shoe, which is then covered with a 316 grade brushed stainless steel cladding.

Stainless steel in 316 Grade is preferred for outdoor use due to its greater resistance to corrosion than other grades of steel. Stainless steel elements can also be chosen in many different finishes; from polished, brushed, to custom painted to match the surrounding fixtures. No matter what type of design you are trying to create, it can be achieved by choosing the appropriate elements.

In the event where laminated glass is broken, the broken glass panel stays intact due to an inter-layer between the glass. Stainless steel in 316 Grade is preferred for outdoor use due to its greater resistance to corrosion than other grades of steel. The glass was anchored by utilizing an aluminum base shoe, which is then covered with stainless steel cladding.
