Glass Railing Post System
The glass post railing system is made up of metal posts and glass clips. Each clip is made from 2205 duplex stainless steel. It grips the glass panels from both sides using rubber. Use the clips with normal glass, or secure them to pre-drilled glass with a bolt for extra strength. Almost every post comes with a handrail bracket at the top where wooden or metal handrail can be attached. Choose between a flat top or universal top handrail bracket to decide whether your handrail sits flush against the top of the post, or whether it is elevated above it.
The metal glass railing posts are similar to Viewrail’s other rod railing and cable railing posts, but are simply created to work with glass clips rather than rod and cable infill. You should use two glass railing posts for every 4’ panel of glass. Each post is pre-drilled to accommodate glass clips, but the clips are shipped unattached to their posts. Glass clips (as well as the posts) are made of 2205 duplex stainless steel, a marine-grade steel used on deep sea oil rigs. The glass clips grip the glass panels from both sides and hold them in place by using rubber inside the clip.
