Glass railings can be a beautiful and functional addition to your home, office building, shopping mall, or other place of business. They can make a staircase or balcony safe without blocking the view. Glass railings are made with tempered glass that’s much stronger than standard glass and difficult to break. 

What Are Surface-Mounted Railings?

Railings can be mounted in numerous ways. Surface-mounted railings are one option. When they’re installed, clamps and posts are screwed or bolted to an existing surface, such as a balcony or staircase. 

Tempered glass panels are then inserted into the clamps and posts. Additional clamps on the sides of the railing hold the glass panels securely in place.

How Can Surface-Mounted Railings Be Customized?

Other features can be combined with surface-mounted railings to suit your specific needs and to create the style that you want. For example, in some locations, you might want to install a cap rail or a handrail. A handrail can be placed on the top or on the side. You can choose brushed stainless steel parts, or you can have them powder-coated in the color of your choice.

Why Should You Install Surface-Mounted Railings at Your Property?

Surface-mounted railings are versatile enough to be used in a wide range of locations, and they can be installed on any substrate. With a combination of clamps, posts, and strong tempered glass panels, surface-mounted railings can prevent falls and injuries and protect you or your business from liability for an accident.

If you’re a homeowner with children, surface-mounted railings can give you peace of mind. You won’t have to worry about a child falling from a staircase and getting hurt. In addition, since glass railings have clear panels, you’ll be able to see where your kids are, even if you’re in another part of the house.

Homeowners and businesspeople also choose surface-mounted railings for aesthetic reasons. People who are sitting on a balcony can enjoy an unobstructed view of a city skyline or natural landscape. When surface-mounted railings are used indoors, people can see a building’s architectural design without a solid barrier getting in the way.
