Glass Lock 3000
In addition to its modern, polished look, Glass Lock 3000 has floating corners, no visible fasteners, and requires no onsite welding or fabrication. It has been engineered to meet California’s strict building code, which means it will meet code just about anywhere in the US. In some states, a cap rail will be required. This glass railing system is offered with either powder coated aluminum posts and cap rail or brushed stainless steel posts. It can have either 3/8″ or 1/2″ glass, polycarbonate sheets, or other infill. This railing system is very easy to install and can be installed on existing or new decks.
A combination of Glass Lock and base shoe glass railings were used in this home. The Glass Lock allowed for floating stairs, while the base shoe is set into the floor for guardrails on the bridge and top of the stairwell. The assembly was tied together by aluminum cap rails that flow seamlessly from one railing to the next.

Black powder coated posts complement the wood cap rail which matches the decking. The same railing is used inside the house as a guardrail for the loft. For the open stairwell, the homeowners chose the base shoe to complement the Glass Lock railings elsewhere.
Integrated Railing Bench
This glass railing incorporated a built-in wooden bench that acted as part of the railing. Glass wound around the edge of the deck and up two steps, with a wood caprail that matched the bench and decking. The Glass Lock posts and bench supports were powder coated in a black finish.
