If you have a staircase or balcony in your home or business, safety must be a top priority, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. You can have both with a stand-off post railing.
What Is a Stand-Off Post Railing?
A stand-off post railing consists of a sheet of tempered glass that stands off from the wall or staircase it’s attached to. That design creates a stunning visual effect.
Stainless steel or aluminum posts are attached to the side of the supporting structure. The posts can be seen from the front, but when a person is standing on the other side, the posts aren’t visible.
Why Should You Choose a Stand-Off Post Railing?
Stand-off post railings are versatile. They can be used in homes, office buildings, shopping malls, restaurants, hotels, and other kinds of businesses.
Unlike a solid barrier made of wood or metal, a tempered glass railing won’t block the view. If your building has an impressive architecture that you want to show off, or if you want your home or business to have an open and spacious appearance, a stand-off post railing can be the ideal choice.
A stand-off post railing can be customized to suit your building’s design, the image you want your business to convey, or your style. The posts can be powder-coated in the color of your choice. You can combine stand-off posts with cap rails or handrails made of wood or stainless steel, and you can have handrails installed along the top of the railing or on the side.
Stand-off post railings are safe. Tempered glass undergoes a manufacturing process that makes it much stronger than standard glass and unlikely to shatter. If tempered glass does break, it forms small, round pieces that won’t cut people.
Why Should You Have US Glass Fence Install a Stand-Off Post Railing?
If you decide to have a stand-off post railing installed in your home or place of business, it’s essential to work with a qualified and experienced company. First, contractors will have to inspect the wall or staircase and make sure that it’s strong enough to support a glass railing. If so, the posts and glass panels must be installed correctly to prevent an accident and serious injuries.
