Common Questions

Glass Railing Inquiries

DO YOU HAVE GLASS IN STOCK?

No, each piece is custom cut to fit your project. What this means for you is that you'll have an even 1 1/2" spacing between the glass and the post. Which creates a consistent even look for you.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THE GLASS, ONCE WE HAVE PLACED AN ORDER?

The average length of time is 2-3 weeks, but we will confirm the timelines upon you putting the order in.

HAS THE GLASS EVER BROKEN AND IF SO WHAT HAPPENS?

Once the glass is set in the railing system it won't break, but if it does it would shatter into a million tiny pieces. As an example, if this would happen while moving a piece, you'd hear a large bang and the glass would shatter and your hands would be fine.

WHAT'S THE LARGEST SPAN OF GLASS YOU CAN USE?

The National building code states that you can use 21 sq ft of glass in between posts, which works out to be on average 5ft. in a 42" tall railing system.

HOW DO YOU CLEAN THE GLASS?

The easiest way to clean tempered glass is to use Windex, an alternative to cleaning glass railing is to use vinegar and water. A squeegee is very helpful as well.
