Glass Railing Standoff Pins

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, but don’t underestimate them. Each weighs about 4 pounds and is made from 2205 duplex stainless steel, the same material used in high-traffic metal structures and oil rigs around the world. One of the best things about this system? There are no bulky metal pieces to get in the way of your view.

Product Information

Only about ¾ 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.

The 2” pins weigh about 4 pounds each and are made of 2205 duplex stainless steel. This is the same material that is used in high-traffic metal structures and oil rigs around the world. 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 Talon Spigot. However, where the Talon spigot clamps a piece of glass through tilt lock technology, the glass standoff pin compresses glass using a solid threaded bolt.

About 3/4 of the standoff pin is used to hold up the weight of the glass panels it is supporting; this part of the pin is bolted into the surface the glass railing is being applied to (the standoff pin can also be recessed into a mounting surface). Once the glass is in place, the rest of the pin is attached on the outer side of the glass panel, and is twisted into place until the glass is compressed. This second piece is the circle you see when looking at standoff pin glass railing.

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. Finally, install the glass panels one at a time, and finish by adding the caps.
