Wagner introduces PanelGrip® for installation of glass panel railings

The Wagner Companies has developed PanelGrip®, a dry-mount glazing system for the installation of tempered glass panel railings. PanelGripTM enables the installer to fabricate a structural Glass Railing System with cost reductions up to 80% in labor and 30% in freight.

The Wagner PanelGrip® System is a patent-pending locking assembly of high-strength aluminum, two PVC isolators, and a specially designed aluminum shoe moulding. PanelGrip® requires no special tools and provides an easy, clean and cost effective alternative for the installation of tempered glass panels. PanelGrip® is for use with nominal ½" (12mm) tempered glass or other ½" thick panel material and allows for a .450" to .515" range in glass thickness. The PanelGrip® System was tested per ASTM E935, Standard Test Methods for Performance of Permanent Railing Systems and Rails for Buildings.

PanelGrip® Shoe Moulding is almost 30% lighter than standard shoe. This new shoe design reduces freight costs yet meets structural load requirements for railings.

For more information on the PanelGrip® System and other components and tools for the assembly of structural glass railing including shoe moulding, railing and mounting brackets, visit or call (888) 243-6914. To receive Wagner’s 280-page Master Catalog of over 7,800 items, please e-mail
