Each glass deck railing installation is unique and specific to the location where it is to be installed. This project features 1/2″ Clear Tempered Glass, a Fasica Mounted Base Shoe to support the glass, custom steel fabrication to attach the glass shoe to the deck, and a top cap to meet Tiburon’s glass guardrail codes.
This project located in Marin County overlooks the San Francisco Bay and incorporated multiple trades for the installation. It features a custom steel mounting bracket to mount the glass railing base shoe to. Both the steel and base shoe were then fastened to the deck structure. The glass was then installed into the base shoe using CRL’s dry glaze, Wedge Lock System, which is engineered to exceed building code requirements.
The photos below show the progress of the deck railing during steel and base shoe installation and after glass installation.
The top cap made of #316 Stainless Steel has not been installed and is not shown in the photos. The finished railing design will feature CRL Brushed Stainless Crisp Corner 11 Gauge Cap Railing which qualifies as a guardrail when used in conjunction with the base shoe system in a properly engineered system.
