PanelGrip for Glass Railing Saves Time

Over five years ago, Iron Images of Tallahassee, Florida did one of their first PanelGrip Dry Glaze installations.

Here’s a video of the install to show how easy it was for them to install a glass railing using PanelGrip instead of anchor cement. They saved time in their installation.

We have continued to improve the product and now offer PanelGrip2 which utilizes a lighter base and smaller mechanism. Learn more about PanelGrip.

  • Innovative, intuitively-designed, non-weld, modular rail system allows for faster, simpler installation without any special tools or training needed
  • Can be installed by one person, on one side of the glass, and the single base shoe accommodates the broadest grip range of any dry glaze system (1/2 – 3/4” or 15-19mm) – ideal for balcony railing applications
  • Exceeds market level performance for the quick assembly of structural glass railing – no messy fillers or other glass preparation required – code compliant when properly assembled.

Great Look, Superior Quality

  • Perfect for any application with easy installation for guard, stair and ramp usage.
  • Safe and sound performance provided by the USA-made locking mechanism from Wagner’s excellent ISO-certified manufacturing facility – accommodates tempered, laminated glass as required by the 2015 International Building Code (IBC).
  • Let the light in with a no-post design and glass infill system that offers great sight lines to maximize light flow for a brighter, more appealing environment.

Lighter Weight Aluminum Base Shoe Moulding

  • Critical to the success of any glass railing installation, the lightweight extruded aluminum base shoe will significantly reduce labor, maintenance, freight and inventory costs
  • May be painted or clad to match the top rail or area décor, and is available in counterbored and fascia configurations
  • Aluminum base shoe is a Green product that qualifies for LEED credits with its sustainable design.
