Product Spotlight
GRS TAPER-LOC® Glass Railing Systems with New Safety-Seal Technology Reduce Installation Time and Increase Safety
C.R. Laurence has introduced new patent-pending Safety-Seal Technology for its full line of award-winning GRS TAPER-LOC® Glass Railing Systems. The Safety-Seal is installed in the base shoe before the glass. This bypasses the need for glaziers to reach over the glass railing to roll in the drop-side rubber seal. The result is an innovative railing system that can be installed faster and with less risk of injury. The new Safety-Seal will premiere at GlassBuild in Las Vegas.
