C.R. Laurence Introduces TAPER-LOC® XAL Adjustable Glass Railing System

C.R. Laurence's new TAPER-LOC® XAL Adjustable Glass Railing System helps glaziers achieve precise railing installations and improved aesthetics. It allows up to 3/4” of glass angle adjustment at a 42" height to compensate for uneven substrates or angular variations between glass lites. This produces glass spans that are perfectly plumb and aligned at the top glass edge, even if the base shoe sections are not even. The system is designed for use with 11/16" and 27/32" laminated tempered glass.
