VIEW™ is a Button Structural Curved Glass Railing giving you the clearest view on the other side. This system is comprised of 1/2” (minimum) SGP laminated glass or 5/8″ PVB laminated glass and fascia mounted fixed point holders in stainless steel.

VIVA uses adjustable stand-off sometimes also referred to as buttons, this comes in very handy when the steel or concrete structure is not level or plumb. From a structural standpoint, glass is acting as a balustrade or a load bearing member. This system meets all IBC code requirements and can be used with a single line free standing railing (see VIVA FSR railing system) system to meet ADA code. The VIVA iRAIL illuminated LED rail is a great add-on application for a sleek, modern look. 

This curved glass button railing system is popularly used in exterior and interior area, stadiums, universities, office buildings, and high-end residential railing applications.

Not only is our VIEW™ system featured, but we also installed a smoke baffle system throughout the different stairwell areas.
