Wagner Introduces PanelGrip®2
Milwaukee, WI – April 7, 2015 – Wagner, previously first-to-market with the industry’s pioneering dry glaze structural railing solution, is building upon the legacy of its already highly-efficient PanelGrip® system with the new streamlined design of PanelGrip 2.
By offering enhanced durability and a lighter weight single aluminum base shoe molding, the PanelGrip 2 design effectively reduces shipping, labor, and inventory costs without sacrificing quality. This, along with its unique, durable and American-made locking mechanism, simplifies installation while still providing code compliance and safety when properly specified and installed. Likewise, it accommodates tempered, laminated glass as required by the 2015 International Building Code (IBC).
Exceeding market level performance for the quick assembly of structural glass railing, PanelGrip 2 does not require any messy fillers or other glass preparation and provides the broadest glass grip range of any dry glaze system. The intuitive, non-weld installation can be performed on one side of the glass by a single person using a standard Allen wrench. This makes it an ideal solution for balcony applications.
Perfect for guard, stair and ramp applications, the full line of fittings and accessories comes in a range of options to customize your look and is available for prompt shipping. Exacting specs also make it easy to ensure contractors get the right system for their specific project needs. The ability to paint or clad the base shoe to match area décor, along with its no-post, glass infill design, gives PanelGrip 2 aesthetic appeal with outstanding sight lines. Finally, the extruded aluminum shoe qualifies for LEED credits as a Green building material.
With PanelGrip 2, Wagner introduces the market to an attractive and cost-effective next generation dry glaze glass railing solution.
