Topless Glass Railing

No hand rail, no bottom rail, a frameless glass railing that lives up to your million dollar view.


Craft-Bilt Announces ‘Structural Glass Railing’

Craft-Bilt has created an attractive topless glass railing system for those customers who want the look of pure glass.

At Craft-Bilt, we’re big on testing and over-designing our products. Testing has shown that our ½” thick glass combined with our new structural glass channel greatly surpasses the load requirements of the building code. The building code does not only require horizontal loads, but it also requires vertical loads as well.  Other glass adapter systems use two small screw ports with a stamped metal support plate. Our system uses four #10 screw ports, especially plated screws and 1/4″ thick CNC aluminum caps to support the combined weight of the glass and the vertical loads of the building code.

   Topless Glass Railing

We’ve designed strong beefy side channels that utilize a roll-in glazing spline to contain the incredibly strong ½” thick tempered glass. There are other systems that use ⅜” thick glass, but at Craft-Bilt we know you’ve come to expect only the best and safest railing for your family.

A beautiful railing system for your home to be sure, but this system also has excellent commercial uses such as windbreaks for outdoor restaurant seating.
