Frameless glass railing faq
What type of glass is best for railings?
The best type of glass for railings is tempered glass. Tempered glass is heat-treated, which makes it stronger and more durable than regular glass. It also has a higher resistance to scratches and other damage. Additionally, tempered glass is much less likely to shatter if it’s broken, making it a safer option for railings.
How thick should frameless glass railings be?
The thickness of frameless glass railings will depend on the application. Generally, the thicker the glass is, the more durable and secure it will be. For most residential applications, 3/8” to 1/2” thick glass is recommended. For commercial applications, thicker glass may be necessary.

How strong is a frameless glass balustrade?
Frameless glass balustrades are extremely strong and durable. They are designed to withstand heavy loads, making them an ideal choice for outdoor applications. Depending on the type of glass used, it can also be highly resistant to impact, temperature changes, and other external factors.
What is the difference between frameless and semi frameless?
The main difference between frameless and semi-frameless glass balustrades is the amount of framework used. Frameless balustrades use minimal framework, while semi-frameless balustrades use more framework to support the glass panels. Semi-frameless balustrades are generally less expensive than frameless ones, but they may not provide as much of a view or be as strong as frameless systems.
How do you install frameless glass railings?
Frameless glass railings are typically installed with a series of posts and base plates. The posts are placed into the foundation and secured in place, then the base plates are attached to the posts. The glass panels are then fitted into the base plates and secured with bolts or screws. Finally, the railing is finished off with caps or handrails.
