Shoe bases are very popular and an excellent choice when you want your place to be 100 percent translucent with no obstacles. Shoe bases are made of strong aluminum which are four inches high.
The base shoe is an engineering marvel. It takes the place of any and all vertical posts. With nothing but glass in your view, it provides a clean look for any exterior or interior application.
The railing system utilizes a heavy aluminum channel known as a base shoe. The base shoe can be exposed as a design, feature, or set in the floor or deck so the glass appears to come straight out of the floor. The glass comes in a variety of types and sizes. Our base shoe railing system is engineered to meet nationwide codes.
A post is a vertical structure that supports a railing, and it is one of the most critical parts of a railing system. Without posts, the railing would lack strength. A post cap is an object designed to cover the top of a post. It can be used for decorative purposes as well as utilitarian; for example, it can keep out rain, bugs, sand, and debris. Sometimes post caps are called finials.
Post railing system is made from stainless-steel durable and strong posts with clips on each side for the glass to be mounted. Stainless steel post railing system is used in exterior or interior applications and is an excellent choice for front door landing and stairs.
In addition, post railing systems are used for interior staircases or exterior handrails and guardrails in-home decks, hotel, or office balconies. They are also great for both commercial and residential applications.
Glass and wood combos are especially designed for interior railings to give the warmed look that wood provides. Glass and wood combos are made from wood posts, grooves, or clips for the glass. They are inserted in the grooves and mounted on the posts with the clips.
Glass and wood combo railings offer a contemporary look and trump any other railing system used today. For many people, the glass and wood combo handrails are considered the “gold standard” when it comes to visual appeal.
Some pros of using a glass and wood combo are design versatility, creation of a solid barrier, and durability. When the installation is complete, the glass used will appear neat and finished. This is one of the only railing systems that incorporates several design elements without appearing cluttered. As a result, you have more versatility and options when designing your space.
Windscreen systems are a beautiful choice for guard rails like pools, lawns, or rooftops. When using the windscreen system, special strong brackets are screwed to the ground and the glass is then positioned on top.
Windscreen systems are increasingly being incorporated in outdoor areas. These post-supported glass railings have been growing in popularity due to their ability to provide unobstructed views and wind protection. They are completely customizable, easy to install, and purposefully designed to make commercial exterior spaces more useful and also enjoyable.
Windscreen systems can be customized and adapted to the specific needs of virtually any project or setting, taking into account terrain, building level, wind loads, line of sight, safety, and other environmental and performance factors.
If you want your railing to take a backseat to the vista, avoid traditional pickets. Instead, you might want to explore cable railings. In place of spindles, pickets, glass, or mesh, these safety rails use cables to fill in the spaces between the posts.
The design of cable railings places a heavy load on the posts, so it is crucial that they are properly designed and installed. When force is applied to the cables, they stretch, so the frames must be very rigid to support the weight placed on the cables. Cable railing frames can be constructed from a variety of different materials, including aluminum, steel, and wood.
There are also many benefits to implementing a cable railing system. They include unobstructed views, modern style, perception of space, ventilation, safer for birds, easier snow removal, low maintenance, and are very versatile.
