Our VIEW™ is a Button Structural Glass Balustrade Railing System that provides the clearest view imaginable. This system consists of 1/2” (minimum) SGP laminated glass or 5/8″ PVB laminated glass and fascia mounted with fixed point holders in stainless steel.

VIVA’s tempered glass infills provide optimal line of sight as well as an understated elegance. Our glass infills range from a minimum of 3/8″ PVB or SGP laminated glass. Colored, patterned and frosted glass are additional options based on design intent and need.

Our Smoke Baffle System seamlessly balances safety and aesthetics. Today’s fire codes often require building smoke curtains in the event of a fire emergency. The Smoke Baffle system provides inconspicuous smoke barriers between slab openings, level changes or divisions of areas. The Smoke Baffle is available in the following finishes: Stainless Steel, Powder Coat Standard, Custom Colors or Anodized Aluminum.
