CrystaLite railings are structurally designed and stamped by an independent structural engineer. CrystaLite railing systems have been rated to accommodate high wind loads and exposure ratings set forth by local building codes. CrystaLite will select the appropriate post size and spacing to meet code requirements, exposure criteria, with wind speeds up to 120 mph.
Enjoy an uninterrupted view with CrystaLite's new Infinity Railing system. Glass guardrails are available utilizing our 2-1/2" (9006) or our solid 1/2" x 3" post with either 3/8"tempered glass (standard) or 7/16" fully tempered laminate (required for commercial).
Infinity glass guardrail systems have been tested by a certified independent test laboratory to meet and exceed IRC and IBC code requirements. Railing system performance has been certified by an independent structural engineer. Test reports and engineering analysis is available upon request.
Some states, including Washington, now require laminated glass for guard railing systems that do NOT have a top rail, thus 7/16" FTL is required to meet the safety and loading criteria both.
All final decisions of code compliance are at the discretion of the local building authority. Always ensure approval by the local authority prior to installation.
Infinity glass railing is largely composed of tempered or fully tempered laminated (FTL) glass. Both tempering and laminating glass requires additional processing which can create some variation in the end product; not unlike buying lumber. All our glass manufacturing vendors adhere to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications (C1048, C1172, C1036). However, since Infinity railing relies greatly on the aesthetics of tempered (or FTL) glass, its important to be aware that some allowable manufacturing tolerances are permitted.Infinity FTL Glass Statement
