A glass railing system is a way to create a protective barrier while allowing continuous views to the space beyond. Gone are the days where you were limited to painted wall surfaces that create closure. Modern design elements should always consider how to effectively open up an existing space and a glass railing system is a cost- effective way to achieve that.  Whether you choose to create a custom rail system or out-of-the-box solution, either will require fastening rails to the existing structure and attaching glass panels.
