SHOE™ ALUMINUM GLASS RAILINGS

SHOE™ Aluminum Glass Railings is a structural glass balustrade system with a patented compression set aluminum base shoe system.  SHOE™ Glass Railing is a great choice for commercial interior or exterior, balcony railing or stair railing applications.

SHOE™ Aluminum Glass Railing System can be either top or fascia mounted. It is available with a glass bracket mounted handrail, round top cap or a U-channel top cap. Base shoe is available in stainless steel or an anodized aluminum cladding.

VIVA Railings dry set system reduces the installation time by almost 50%, hence a reduced final cost to the customer.

LED illumination is available on the handrail, top cap or even in the SHOE™ base. Lighting the SHOE™ base or top cap provides a glow to a glass panel. This glow becomes even more dramatic with an etched pattern or logo which catches the emitted light.
