Specs & Guides

All the information you need in one spot


The following shop drawings are provided as a general guideline only and are not project specific engineered stamped drawings. Each individual project needs to be reviewed by a professional engineer for site-specific requirements. Job specific shop drawings may be required to be produced and stamped by a professional engineer. These drawings may also prove useful to architects and building designers when choosing a railing system or designing the structure that the railing will be attached to.

How to Use

Glass railing installed within Canada may choose the 5-mm option, however, ALL glass rail installed within the United States MUST choose the 1/4″ option. The number of posts distributed along any single run of guardrail must meet the requirements of the products design manual. It is not possible for us to show details for all possible applications and situations. What we have tried to do is show typical applications of our product in common situations. As building practices change and new applications become common we will amend or add details as needed.
