Ascend Glass Talon Spigots
When you want the look of Surface Mount Talons for your staircase, choose Ascend Talons. Each talon is a taller, stronger version of our high-quality talons, specially built to hold glass panels in place as they angle up a staircase.
Manufactured in-house, Ascend Talons are made from aluminum and can be powder coated any color you want. Install the talons in the same way you would install a standoff pin: by putting a hole in the glass, then securing the talon. However, you only need two talons per glass panel, making this a visually sleeker alternative to standoff pins.
Affordable, strong, and versatile, Ascend Talons are the perfect budget-friendly choice for the modern home.
Glass talon spigots are an easy-to-install, versatile glass railing system. Talons are offered in two different configurations: side mount and surface mount. Whether you choose side mount or surface mount talon spigots, you will need to use at least two talons for every 4’ glass panel. Each one weighs about 6 pounds and is 7” high.
The surface mount talon spigot is a clamp that has four holes in its base plate that is simple to screw into the surface of your project. The surface mount clamps the glass from both sides—there is no need for pre-drilled holes, which also makes the surface mount talon spigot a cost-effective option. Both spigots are made of marine-grade 2205 duplex stainless steel and utilize tilt lock technology to keep the glass clamped safely in place. Tilt lock is an innovative technology that greatly helps with the installation of your glass panels. Usually, when you install glass panels, you not only have to align the glass horizontally with each other, but vertically as well. Tilt lock takes the human error out of this process.
