Glass Railing Standoff Pins - Sleek and Strong
Polished, powerful, and discreet — the standoff bracket pin system consists of glass panels held up by 2” round metal pins. The pins may be small and unobtrusive, but don’t underestimate them. Each pin is lightweight and is made from 6061 Aluminum, the same material used for both aircraft and marine fittings. The beauty of standoff bracket pins is that they can run on level or angle runs with seamless consistency. One of the best things about this system? There are no bulky metal pieces to get in the way of your view.
Product InformationOnly about 3/4 of the glass standoff bracket is used to hold up the weight of the glass panels it is supporting. This part is bolted into the mounting surface. Then, once the glass is in place, the rest of the pin is attached to the outer side of the glass panel and twisted into place until the glass is compressed. Each pin is lightweight and is made from 6061 Aluminum, the same material used for both aircraft and marine fittings. Standoff Pins are also able to be powder coated in four different finish options: standard powder coat black, fluoropolymer black, standard powder coat speedboat silver, or fluoropolymer speedboat silver. These pins may be small in size, but you shouldn’t underestimate them. These sturdy pins are side-mounted, much in the same style as the Side Mount Post.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do you install the pin?
Viewrail Standoff brackets can easily be installed by two people, using only a handful of tools. Simply pre-drill the holes in the mounting surface, secure the base of the pin with a lag screw, and thread the pin core and sleeve onto the base. When all base/sleeve units have been installed, thread the cap bolts into the caps, and add a flat washer. This makes standoffs great for staircases. Finally, install the glass panels one at a time, and finish by adding the caps. For more detailed instructions and installation tips, check out our Install Guide.
