StyleGuard believe in offering the highest quality to all our clients in strength and design. Duplex 2205 is the next generation of hardware and we are extremely excited to be the first to use it as our standard equipment. 2205 is 4-5 times stronger than 316 and even more impressive is its non-corrosive characteristics which are miles in front of any other marine grade steel being used today. StyleGuard has always prided itself on offering the widest variety of hardware to its customers, which is why we continue to carry styles that are still currently being made in 316.
There are 2 main methods we employ for installing our glass fencing. The first is surface mounting which uses bolts or other types of anchoring hardware to secure the glass clamps to the surface of your deck, patio, etc. The second method is referred to as core drill. For this type of installation a hole, typically 3" in diameter is drilled between 4" - 8" below surface. A core drill- style glass clamp is then placed in the hole, which is then filled in around the edges with quick setting concrete making the clamp a permanent fixture in the concrete. Both methods offer great results. You should consult with a licensed building professional prior to install to see which method is going to be best for you.

Possibly. Both surface mounts and core drilling require a solid foundation to install. Surface mounting offers a wider variety of options - wood, composite decking, concrete, while core drilling is limited to concrete. Neither can be installed directly into grass or any other soft surface. Each glass panel can weight anywhere between 100 & 120 pounds. If you do not currently have a base surface capable of supporting this weight you will need to have some a footer or other structure build prior to installation.

Our glass fence and railing systems are very easy to take care of and require little to no regular maintenance. Washing every few weeks with a hose is plenty. We strongly suggest not leaving running water directly on the panels for extended periods of time to avoid mineral deposits and when you do clean you should do you best to give a quick wipe down with a dry microfiber cloth to eliminate annoying water spots. Beyond that, just sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. No really. we insist.
