Build an Ultralox Glass Strip Railing Package

Ultralox Glass Strip Panels

Glass panel packs are sold with top and bottom rails, glass strips, and "shoes" to secure the strips where they meet the rails.

Channel kits come in several lengths up to 6', and no longer lengths are allowed because of weight and strength requirements

It's recommended that you lay out where your posts are going (3" wide posts) so that you can measure how long your strip rail sections will be.

This determines what pack size you will order: pack sizes are configured to help you know what finished distance they will span. For example, if you have a 71" span between where two posts will be, you would order a 9-strip pack (spans 70-3/8" to 75-1/2")

Use Ultralox picket stair rails on stairs when using glass strip rails on horizontal sections

Stair version of glass strips and mounts are rail not available, so picket railings are recommended for use on decks with Ultralox glass panel railing

Railing posts

3"x36" posts are used with horizontal sections, and at the top of any stair run

3"x42" posts are used at the bottom of a stair run, or in the middle of a stair section when a graspable handrail is being added.

2" crossover posts (or "mid-span" posts) are used on straight stair runs longer than 96", when you want the top handrail of the railing to be continuous. They are installed halfway down the stair run, between two panels of equal length.

For example, a stair with 11 steps would need two 6' stair panels on either side, with a 2" crossover post about 6 feet down the stair. 


Standard post kits will include 5" lag screws for mounting into treated deck framing, as well as plugs to cover the screws.

If you'd like to add skirts to cover the base entirely, you can buy them individually here

Posts include standard caps, but can be upgraded to a decorative top cap
