VIEW™ is an Interior Stair 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.

VIEW interior stair glass railing system is one of the best sellers, adorning guardrail and stair railing applications for various prestigious projects around the country. VIEW decorative railing provides a refreshing modern look to any project. The railing design is such that it’s more of a complement to the building design rather than an eyesore barrier.

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 systemsystem to meet ADA code. The VIVA iRAIL illuminated LED rail is a great add-on application for a sleek, modern look.
