In an ongoing effort to make railing installations safer for glaziers, C.R. Laurence has introduced its patent-pending Safety-Seal for its full line of GRS TAPER-LOC Glass Railing Systems.

Typically, glaziers need to reach over a glass railing to roll in the drop-side rubber seal. This action increases the risk of injury and prolongs the installation process. The Safety-Seal bypasses this step because it is installed in the base shoe before the glass is inserted. This is made possible by a patent-pending base shoe design for the Safety-Seal on all C.R. Laurence GRS TAPER-LOC Glass Railing Systems. In addition, a universal setting block enables placement of the Safety-Seal prior to setting the glass.

The GRS TAPER-LOC Glass Railing System is dry-glazed and can reduce installation time by more than 50 percent. The Safety-Seal will improve time-savings for glaziers. The system can be used with monolithic or laminated tempered glass, and requires one person to install. It is also the only ICC-ES approved glass railing system in the market. Other product features include base shoe push-in seals, integrated screw races for end cap fastening, and bottom block tape strips for glass adhesion.

GRS TAPER-LOC Glass Railing Systems with the Safety-Seal are ideal for balconies, stairways, and other guardrail applications. They are available with roll-formed stainless steel cladding that retains the benefits of a clad system at a lower cost. To learn more visit here.
