Safety Comes First with Wahoo Rail Glass Panel Deck Railing

Wahoo Rail Glass Panel Deck Railing made its debut at the 2014 International Builder Show. We had one frequently asked question.  That question was, “Will it break easily?“.

The panels of this glass panel deck railing will NOT break easily. Furthermore, they’re also a safer option than other glass railing choices. So, Wahoo uses tempered glass for the panels of its glass panel railing.

Tempered glass, or toughened glass, is a type of safety glass. The process involves using controlled thermal or chemical treatments to increase its strength compared to ordinary glass.

Tempered glass will not break easily. However, in the unlikely case, it does, the tempered glass breaks into tiny pieces. As a result, tempered glass is perfect for car windows, shower windows, and architectural glass doors and tables.

Hence, tempered glass was the perfect solution for Wahoo Glass Rail – a glass panel deck railing option.

More features and benefits to Wahoo Glass Rail include:

  • First, 4″ wide panels are available for 36″ & 42″ height railing.
  • Tempered glass panels have beveled edges.
  • We use infused glass polypropylene to engineer the brackets.  These brackets ensure strength and longevity.
  • We use pre-mitered stair panels. Therefore, they comply with stair rakes from 36 – 38 degrees.
  • Brackets easily attach to top and bottom rails.
  • We hide the fasteners with the bracket.
  • We use brackets with wicking channels. They fit into the bottoms of the brackets, allowing water to drain.
  • Wicking channels protect the brackets from water damage caused by freezing or thawing.
  • Finally, it’s available in two tints: Pure or Twilight.

Wahoo Glass Panel Railing Selected by NGBL Marine Construction Co. for its unique appearance, safety, and durability.

North Georgia Boat Lift & Marine Construction Co. is one of the first to install Wahoo Glass Panel Railing on a dock at Lake Blue Ridge in Georgia.

Gainesville, GA September, 30 2014 – Award winning NGBL North Georgia Boat Lift & Marine Construction Co. has been installing Wahoo products for over a decade. Once the glass railing became available NGBL shared the concept with dock owners.

It did not take long for a customer to make the switch from picket dock railing to glass railing because of the unique appearance that glass railing added to the dock.

“The all-new glass rail system has been very well received by our customers,” said Jon Pack, owner of NGBL Marine Construction Co.., “another example of Wahoo’s continuous launch of new products and improvements.”

Wahoo Glass Panel Railing is built to last for many years to come.   The glass rail panels are made with approved tempered (or safety) glass.  Manufacturers of tempered glass use heat treatments during the manufacturing process that increase the durability, strength and safety of the glass.  If tempered glass is broken, the glass is engineered to break into small pebbles that are less likely to cause injury.

Available in 4′, 5′, and 6′ kits, for both straight rail and stair rail runs, Wahoo Glass Panel Railing relies on the same time tested,  low-maintenance solution as our standard picket Wahoo Rail offering; Marine-Grade Aluminum that won’t rust, warp or twist over time.  The aluminum rail sections are quick and easy to install; having 36″ & 42″ heights available, Wahoo Glass Railing is well suited for both commercial and residential rail applications.

Whether refurbishing existing docks or decks, or building new, this dock railing choice will preserve that perfect view while maintaining the fundamentals of safety and durability that are requirements of any handrail system.
