Glass Panel Balcony Railing - Simple, Elegant, and Safe
Give your home a distinctly European look with the addition of a glass panel balcony railing. Glass panels maximize visibility and safety. Yes, you'll be doing some additional window washing, but you don't need to sacrifice your view of the sake of safety and security.
Building an elegant glass paneled railing isn't as complicated as you might think. Kee Klamp fittings make it easy for you to build pipe railing and attach the glass panels.
Start by designing the basic railing structure. You want to have support rails at the top and bottom to attach to the glass. Our projects team can help you decide what fittings you want to use in building a pipe rail. If you're the DIY type, then check out our pipe railing page and the general fittings page.
Once you've got the basic layout of the railing done, decide how many panels you're going to have. You'll want them to be equal in size whenever possible. This will make ordering the panels easier, create more visual symmetry and give you less headaches during installation.
The panels will be attached in the four corners using the P50 Offset Tab. This will keep the glass away from the railing and give you some flexibility in your connection point. You'll want the glass supplier to predrill the holes for you. Be sure to have an accurate idea of where the top and bottom rails will be.
