Wahoo Rail Glass Panel Deck Railing made its debut at The 2014 International Builder Show.

One of the frequently asked questions Wahoo Decks received about the glass deck railing was, “Will it break easily?

The glass panels of this glass panel deck railing will NOT break easily. Furthermore, they’re also a safer option than other glass railing choices.

The panels of Wahoo’s glass panel railing are made with tempered glass. 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 normal glass.

Tempered glass will not break easily. However, in the unlikely case it does break, it 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 available for 36″ & 42″ height railing
  • Tempered glass panels with beveled edges
  • Brackets engineered from an infused glass polypropylene. This ensures strength and longevity.
  • Stair brackets used with pre-mitered stair panels. Therefore, they comply with stair rakes from 36 – 38 degrees.
  • Brackets easily attach to top and bottom rails.
  • Fasteners hidden with the bracket
  • Brackets engineered 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
