Types of Glass Railing
At Landmark Construction & Development Group, we can install several types of glass railing. While glass has a signature look, it’s more versatile than most realize. There are a few core designs to choose from for your commercial property.
Standoff Glass Railings
Standoff glass railings are a great choice when your top priorities include chic aesthetics and unobstructed views. This type of glass railing installation has no frames or distracting hardware. Large tempered glass panels sit vertically on stairs and floors. The only visible hardware is small cylindrical standoffs.
The standoffs are available in many finishes and sizes. As the name implies, they hold the glass away from the installation surface while securing them into place. The result is a frameless look that provides high visibility and uninterrupted views of the surrounding area.
Clamped Glass Railings
Clamped glass railings offer more design choices than standoff glass railings because they use more hardware. Instead of using standoff spacers, this commercial glass railing utilizes vertical posts. The glass sits securely between the posts with clips.
This type of glass railing in Los Angeles is popular because there’s more room to experiment with design. Posts can be of varying thicknesses and materials, and the posts’ style will impact the railing’s final look.
Dadoed Glass Railing
This glass railing installation combines traditional style with a modern flare. Large glass panels make up most of the railing’s design. But a glass railing contractor like Landmark can also spend time building visually pleasing top rails, post caps, and more.
These railings have glass panels secured between a top rail and a bottom shoe. The rails have a trench dado, creating a frame for the glass to sit. While this type of commercial glass railing is more complex, they’re a good choice for crafting distinct interior styles.
