Frameless Glass Panels
Frameless Glass Panels
Glass railing can feel intimidating. We are here to take care of you through every step of the process and deliver a stunning glass railing system straight to your home. We do that by controlling every step of the design, engineering, and fabrication process.
Not only do we provide sleek and modern hardware, we offer custom glass panel fabrication so that you can be sure you’ll get exactly what you need at an unbeatable lead time. We won’t compromise on any part of your system. That’s why we only fabricate low-iron glass to make sure we deliver glass panel railing that have the highest level of clarity, so you can focus on your view. Learn more about our glass fabrication process below.
But a slender metal railing cap can be added to the top of the panels, for a sleeker, finished look. The base rail comes in lengths of 4′, 8′, and 12′.
The base rail is available in lengths of 4′, 8′, and 12′ which gives the latitude to work with varying size constraints. The glass base rail system is one of two glass railing configurations (the other being talon spigots) that use the patented tilt lock technology. Tilt lock is an innovative technology that greatly helps with the installation of glass panels.
Normally, in order to install a base rail like this, the installer would have to grout both sides of the glass panels in-between the outer rubber channels in order to make the glass panels sit perpendicular to the ground. They would also have to use grout to align the glass panels with one another. Tilt lock takes the human error out of this process.
Frameless Glass Panels – Fabricated By Us
Traditional railing providers will outsource glass panel fabrication. We fabricate our own glass for railings and stairways. This slashes lead times, and it allows you, the customer, to get exactly what you need very quickly. We use lasers and state-of-the-art machinery to cut the glass to the right panel specifications.
We start with large, extra-clear, low iron pieces of glass. We can manufacture either ⅜” or ½” panels to your custom dimensions, and cut mounting holes where necessary. We’re regularly audited and tested on the safety of our glass fabrication process, so you can rest assured knowing that each piece of glass you order is completely safe.

Low Iron Glass – See the Difference
Each panel is fabricated from Starphire™ low-iron glass, so it does not have that green-blue tint that’s common in glass. It’s completely clear, keeping the emphasis on your view. And, because all of the materials are in-house, we can make sure the glass is engineered precisely according to your measurements.
Low-iron glass is actually not produced any differently from standard glass: the difference is in the raw materials used. We source glass that comes from a sand with a low-iron content. That’s right, the top ingredient in our low iron glass is sand. In fact, you can stack multiple panels on top of each other and still clearly see through it on the other side.
Precision Made Easy
Glass panel railing is an exact system that doesn’t allow for much adjustability on the job site. It requires a great deal of quality control and attention to detail. We know how important it is to stay in close communication throughout each stage of engineering. And, because we control the entire process of glass fabrication, we ensure that your glass will be cut exactly to the dimensions it needs to be.
Our designers and engineers collaborate directly with you and our manufacturing team, and you’ll see the direct results. We keep you updated every step along the way, ensuring every piece is cut correctly and every hole goes in the right location.
Keeping Lead Times Low
We run custom orders to your specifications in small batches every single day. Have you ever been frustrated by how long it takes to receive your order after placing it with a large company? That’s because many fabrication facilities run huge orders for a variety of applications. They have tons of different specifications that require them to run large batch sizes — for both architectural and non-architectural projects. When you place your order, they may not get to your specification for several weeks.
Here, we produce glass in just two simple thicknesses, and that allows us to keep changeover times limited. We’re not selling out our maximum demand. We leave space in our production environment to put you, as the customer, first.
