Standard ClearRail posts are 36 inches tall but may be ordered in other lengths. Tempered glass panels may be installed flush with the post tops or project above the posts. The posts are available in 10 standard colors or may be special ordered in custom colors. Standard tempered glass is clear but can also be tinted or etched for privacy. See post color gallery

What is the maximum post spacing?

Post may be installed up to 54 inches on center.

Should I order posts and glass before installation or measure spans and order glass after the posts are in place?

No. The posts are installed first and then the glass is measured for a precision fit.
