Types of glass railings

We offer several types of railings that differ in the organization of the system, design, type of fasteners and purpose.


  1. Post system. Metal supports are attached to the base at the same distance from each other. Glass sheets are installed between them, fixing them on the support plates. The railing posts are complemented by metal handrails.
  2. Base Shoe. Frameless deck railings made of solid glass look original on the functional roof of the house, they are installed on flights of stairs, balconies. Sheet glass of high strength is mounted on special fixtures in the floor. The design, at the request of the client, is supplemented with handrails, which are fixed on the upper edge of the glass or carried out beyond the plane of the fence from the inside.
  3. Spigot System. These frameless systems are attached to stairs or flat bases with round holders, clamping profiles or brackets. Such railings are often used as fences or low curbs, dividing the territory into specific zones. From above, the glass sheet is left open or a metal or wooden coating is made in the form of a handrail.
  4. Stanoff System. Stair railings on pins are characterized by high structural strength. Several glass sheets are mounted from above to the railing, and from below – to the base of the floor or stairs, using a point mount. For reliability, holes are made in the glass according to the size of the fastener and fixed on both sides.
