Frameless Structural Glass Railing, Creates a Transparent Pool Fence

Frameless Structural Glass Railing, Creates a Transparent Pool Fence

Glass can be used in many unique applications.  This week, we are finishing up the installation of a structural glass railing featuring CRL’s L21 and L25 Base Shoe. It provides a transparent yet secure barrier between a hotel pool and spa, while providing an uninterrupted view of the Bodega Bay.  The glass is Structural Tempered Laminated Glass using Dupont’s .060 Sentry Interlayer.  Here are a couple photos of the Old Town Glass crew installing the glass in Bodega Bay as part of a pool and spa deck remodel project.  The base shoe for the railing is embedded in the concrete pool and spa deck giving the appearance of the glass floating out of the structure.   Custom fabricated stainless steel clamps will be added between the glass panels to help keep the panels aligned.
