SHOE™ Aluminum Glass Railing System

SHOE™ Structural Glass Railing System (U.S. Patent #9127474) is an aluminum glass railing 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.

This architectural railing solution provides fall protection barrier without obstruction to view or an unsightly barrier.

SHOE™ Aluminum Glass Railing 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 in the handrail, top cap or even in the SHOE™ base.  Lighting the SHOE™ base or top cap provides a glow to the glass panel.
This glow becomes even more dramatic with an etched pattern or logo which catches the emitted light.  VIVA’s iRAIL Product Line is ETL Certified; the ETL Mark is proof of product compliance to North American safety standards.


VIVA Railings has partnered with SIKA Corporation for their Waterproof SHOE System applications for embedding glass panels into the base shoe for structural glass railing system. Sika’s 2-Component self-leveling polymer grout (SikaForce®-735 GG) and weather sealant (Sikasil®WS products) are the ideal combinations of products to provide a watertight joint between VIVA’s Shoe System and the laminated glass panes.




We use and recommend SikaForce®-735 GG Self-leveling 2-Component PU-Grout for embedding of glass panels.

*This waterproofing solution is not standard and is available upon special request only.
