At Unity Metal we provide a range of framed glass railing options to ensure the products are customized to meet the needs of the end user. The framed glass railing option is comprised of stainless-steel posts and glass panels. The materials that we use are 304, 316L, and 2205 duplex stainless steel to ensure that all railings meet high-quality standards. Round handrails can have a diameter of 38mm, 42.4mm or 50.8mm and square handrails can be 40x40mm or 50x50mm.
The posts can also be round or square will the same size options as the handrails. Posts are also customizable in height with a choice of 38” or 42”. These posts can be supplied in satin, mirror, or a matte black finish depending on the design of the surroundings.
The glass panels can be supplied in any thickness ranging from 6-12mm and can also be customized depending on taste. Tempered clear glass, laminated glass, frosted glass, super clear glass, ice cracked glass, and tinted glass is all available, and the clamping design of the railings ensures there is no need for drilling into the glass panels.
Frameless glass railings are perfect for environments where the railings don’t want to be a focal point or where the view shouldn’t be uninterrupted by frames or posts. The glass panels are fitted into aluminum base shoes with two types of rubber inlays for a snug fit. The transparent glass balustrades are used to ensure a clear view throughout and can be any thickness you desire from around 9.5mm to 17.5mm. This type of installation is convenient to fit and provides high protection with the use of tempered glass. The design means that no drilling into the glass is needed. Therefore, the glass maintains its strength and durability. The glass can also be customized to suit the surroundings, with a range of colors available to choose from.
Standoff glass railings are great for interiors as they are of a low height and do not require any extensive installation. The standoff glass railings are self-supporting with miniature posts and can be fixed on one side of the railing. The standoff can be round or square with a choice of 38mm, 42.4mm or 50.8mm diameter for round and 40x40mm or 50x50mm for square standoffs.
This type of railing requires drilling holes into the glass on one side of the railing and adding expansion screws that pass through the glass and into the standoff base. This is a simple installation that can be achieved with an electric drill, and once tightened, the railings will be secure. Whilst standoff glass railings are often used indoors, they can also be used outdoors for balconies or steps if the location allows for the required installation.
A dadoed glass railing inserts a panel of glass between the top and bottom of the railing. This gives an aesthetically pleasing look without creating an overly modern feel. The glass panels can be customized to suit the existing surroundings and can be supplied in a range of thicknesses. An aluminum base provides a secure foundation for the railings, and a stainless-steel top rail tube ensures the glass remains in place. Depending on individual preference, the top rail tube can be supplied as a rounded or square finish.
Clamped glass railings are a popular choice for swimming pools, but they are also utilized in a variety of other areas, such as garden sections, balconies, and stairs. These types of railings are available using 304, 316L, and 2205 stainless steel, making them durable, reliable, and corrosion resistant.
The upper part of the clamp block provides a U-shaped groove tube that the glass slots into. The TIG welded tube is available in a round design with a choice of 25.4mm, 42.4mm or 48.3mm in diameter, a rectangle design (25x21mm) or a 40x40mm square. The thickness is available from 1.2mm to 1.5mm and a choice of 5.8m or 6m in length. The tubes can be supplied in a satin, mirror or matte black finish.
A base clamp is also installed, and all clamps are tightened using screws to give maximum security.

There is no doubt that glass handrails look incredible when installed, but they may leave you wondering whether they are the safest option for your property. The good news is that they are probably far safer than you give them credit for! At Unity Metal, our glass handrails are made from tempered glass that is designed to offer strong support even when met with impact or force. The other great thing about tempered glass is that it also shatters safely, leaving no sharp pieces that can cause serious injury.
