Glass Railing Post System - Minimalistic Framed Solution

Our Glass Post System combines the undeniable views offered by glass railing with Viewrail’s trademark square posts. It is part of our Signature Railing series, defining the industry standards of premium glass railing as the minimalistic framed solution of choice. The glass post railing system is made up of metal posts and glass clips. Each clip is made from 2205 duplex stainless steel, the same material used for deep sea oil rigs. It grips the glass panels from both sides using rubber pads in between steel plates. 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.

Glass Post System Product Information

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 for stair or deck railing. It is part of our Signature Railing series, defining the industry standards of premium glass railing on decks. As the minimalistic framed solution of choice, the strength of glass panels reinforces safety and security. Much like our Cable and Rod Signature Systems, the posts are able to be fabricated from either aluminum or stainless steel, giving high levels of customization in color and finish capabilities. Every post comes pre-drilled to your specifications, complete with a handrail bracket at the top where wooden or metal handrail can be attached. Additionally, choose between surface or fascia mount styles, with the possibility of an even slimmer profile with our slim side mount posts.
