Let's Talk About Safety, Shall We?

OK, so you’re thinking about getting the glass railing cost now, but you want to make sure this is the right choice? Glass railings aren’t just going to add elegance to your home, but they are also extremely safe.

Tempered Glass is Required, Right?

Yes, absolutely. In fact, it is required.

First, tempered glass is tougher than regular glass. The difference between tempered glass and ordinary glass starts by the way it is made. The process of creating tempered glass involves heating glass, followed by cooling it very quickly. This applies compression on the outer surface. This method modifies the glass’ composition which makes the material much stronger and more durable.

But more importantly, regular glass will break into random, uneven, and dangerous shards. On the other hand, tempered glass shatters into soft pieces of glass that are harmless, which is the whole point in making your glass railing part of a secure environment.

What About Glass Size?

The algorithm calculates the optimal panel length and gaps between panels. In other words, just measure your deck openings, enter your dimensions and we will cut the glass accordingly.

For your frameless glass deck railing system height, dimensions are predetermined depending on your situation. North American buildings codes require a minimal 36 inches glass height for residential decks but it’s not that simple.

What About the Glass Thickness?

For thickness, sturdy ½” (12 mm) tempered glass with 1/8” rounded corners for safety is mandatory and up to Canadian and American building codes.

To save you the details, we prepared a glass height chart (in inches) for your fence according to every situation.
