Coastal California Glass Rail Installations with Dupont SentryGlas

Coastal California Glass Rail Installations with Dupont SentryGlas

The following three glass railing installations feature amazing views of the San Francisco Bay and Pacific Ocean in Marin and Sonoma Counties. By using Dupont’s  SentryGlas  laminated glass interlayer the coastal views are captured and provide a transparent barrier between the outdoor living spaces and nature.

We frequently use the Dupont’s .060 Sentry Glass Interlayer in deck rail applications where the deck railing must meet code requirements for human impact load or wind speed / wind load applications and client wants to maximize the view.  Code requirements dictate the strength a glass railing system must meet and almost all cases a top cap is required in the local area where we do our installation work.  When we need to meet code requirements but there is a desire to not have a top cap, we utilize’s Dupont’s SentryGlas.

The photos below highlight  recent Old Town Glass projects that used the Dupont .060 Sentry Interlayer in glass guard rail applications.

Tiburon Project: Interior and Exterior Railings

General Contractor: Rempe Construction

Project Team: Old Town Glass Division 7 OnSpot Welding  Danmeier Architects

This residential project in Marin County used 9/16″ Tempered Laminated Glass with the Dupont SentryGlas for both the interior and exterior railings.  The exterior railing was set in a base shoe system and a CRL stainless steel cap was used to capture the edge of the glass.   The interior railing was also 9/16″ thick, consisting of two pieces of 1/4″ tempered glass and an .060 interlayer.  A handrail was added to the glass using handrail brackets and tubular stainless steel.
