Important Points to Know About Glass Railings
You should consider several important points when you want to add a glass railing to your home. Among them:
Choose the Right Glass Railing System for the Space
There are several different ways to install a glass railing, each one offering a different look and feel. These are:
Dadoed Glass Railing
This system implies a glass railing in which each panel is secured to the top and bottom railings, basically lying within a wooden frame. Since it calls for no hardware or clips, the result is a railing with a clean and open visual appeal.
Standoff Glass Railing
Here the glass panels are secured to stainless steel cylinders. To do this, holes must be drilled into the glass. The glass panels are then leveled in place, and the cylinders secure each panel to the vertical face of the floor or the stair system. You can select a frameless system that will call for a minimal amount of hardware. Remember that this rail system’s fastening method requires sufficient backing to be installed during the framing stage of construction to support the glass stairs.
Clamped Glass Railing
This system of glass railings Miami calls for glass panels that are secured with glass clips that are mounted to posts and the railing. With this system, you can use steel or wooden posts to enhance your glass stairs. Also, the hardware can be highlighted by using either black or steel hardware. The result is very modern and attractive.
At CM Glass, We Know the Building Codes
Local building code requirements may specify whether you need to install glass railings and glass stairs made from tempered or laminated safety glass.
At CM Glass, we are familiar with South Florida’s current building codes and will provide you with a high-end glass railing or glass stairs within building code requirements.
Our glass railings are made from the highest quality tempered glass. This glass has been heat-treated to increase its surface strength and change the way it breaks for safety reasons.
When installing a laminated glass railing, we use glass made from two pieces fused together with an inner layer that provides extra safety and strength. If it breaks, one side will shatter, allowing the other side to remain in place.
