YOU WANT OPTIONS—WE GIVE YOU OPTIONS

This particular railing system is an extremely popular option for clients who desire something modern, sleek, and affordable. Originally, it was designed for the great outdoors, with excellent durability, strength, and low maintenance. So, how did we customize it to suit this homeowner’s need for an interior cottage railing that suits their space?

First off, the homeowner built his cottage without planning for the interior railing. No problem—we can build to suit most applications. We took the necessary measurements and angles of his interior wall and fabricated custom angled baseplates that fit the stub wall and stair angles. We manufactured 2 ¾” x 2 ¾” square profiled posts to fit his space, bolting them on (evenly spaced), with four 3/8” x 4” stainless steel lag bolts. Each post comes pre-set with a rubber gasket that accepts 10mm tempered and polished glass. Finally, we measured and made templates for the angled stair glazing. Two weeks later, we came back with the glass.

At that point, we needed only slide glass panes down into the posts—something that usually only takes an hour or two. With those precise measurements, we custom-fit a powder-coated top railing. We apply a generous bead of structural silicone to the inside of the handrailing top channel, and then apply pressure to push it down onto the glass. This adhesive cures in just 24 hours.

And there you have it: an affordable, beautiful, interior glass railing. You even have the option of sleek (and lower-cost) topless glass panel—though stair sections always need the top railing for safety.

Enjoy!
