Our Free Standing Rails (FSR) and posts are both available in 1.5” diameter stainless steel in SS304 and SS316 alloys. FSR posts can be core mounted, top flange mounted, welded to steel or welded to concrete embed. FSRs are excellent for stadium seating rails, building entrance rails, ramps, landscaping rails, stair centerline rails as well as numerous other applications. FSRs are also available with our iRail System (LED lighted rail).


VIEW point-supported glass railing system is one of the best sellers, adorning guardrail and stair railing applications for various prestigious projects around the country. VIEW™ point-supported glass 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.


Crossland Construction begins the construction process even before a single hammer gets picked up. Combined with engineers, design firms, and architects, Crossland begins by doing several steps beginning with analysis, scheduling, recommendations, and meetings with everyone involved.
