A base shoe railing consists of an extruded aluminum channel that can be surface mounted, side mounted or concealed. The channel holds a panel of tempered glass using an adjustable wedge and shim system. The resulting railing is strong, minimalist and stylish,

The base shoe and glass are strong enough to serve as a safety railing but a simple caprail can be added for additional strength or for aesthetic appeal. This also provides additional stability and alignment for the panels. The base rail comes in lengths of up to 20 feet. The standard brushed aluminum finish can be clad in stainless steel or powder coated for a striking finish.

Base shoe railings can be combined with other elements such as handrails or cap rails in wood or stainless steel. Handrails can be mounted on the side or the top depending on your design requirements.

It is important that the underlying structure is strong enough to support the small posts. Be sure to call a professional glass railing installer. For more information call (888) 814-9346‬.
