Glass Railings, Balustrades and Partitions

When used in glass railings, balustrades and partitions, DuPont™ SentryGlas® helps keep people in safe places, while adding daylight, maintaining open views, and preventing injuries related to sudden glass failure.

Open edges, novel fixturing, and outstanding structural performance are among the advantages of railings made with SentryGlas®.

The following area features examples of SentryGlas® use in balustrades, rails and partitions.  For more glass railing design examples, see the complete Design Gallery.
