The self-supporting glazed railing systems become permanent architectural features that maximize the perception of a building by admitting natural light and allowing visual contact with the surroundings. glass railings mean freedom to design.
The self-supporting glazed railing systems improve the comfort of living and add value to buildings.
Full-glass railings are deployed as bands of glass without interfering partitions; they also serve as structural components by their capacity to support high loads. This solution keeps the glazing mounts nearly invisible when finished.
Self-supporting glass railings can be applied in a wide variety of architectural design solutions that are fully tailored to the individual styling preferences of building project owners and designers.
The full-glass railing system by Copal is a traditional self-supporting railing system comprising a linear base mount of the railing glazing pane, made of a structural aluminium profile, the glazing pane, which serves as a structural support member that provides a uniform distribution of the wind loads, and a linear loading rail along the top of the glazing pane.
