This CRL B5S Series Standard Square Aluminum Base Shoe is used as the base channel for glass railing systems. It can be clad in several choices of architectural finishes. The most critical component in a railing system is the proper attachment of the Aluminum Base Shoe to the substrate. CRL has engineered and tested a variety of attachment methods, and has developed an acceptable combination of drilling patterns and fasteners. A printed brochure with Instructions, Installation Hints, Cleaning, and Refinishing techniques is available.

NOTE: 240 inch (6.10 meter) Extrusion Only (without holes) cannot be used for the GlassWedge® Dry Glaze System unless the Aluminum Base Shoe is fabricated to the above tested and approved hole and counter bore pattern. The GlassWedge® Dry Glaze System requires that the attachment holes be counter bored so that no part of the fastener protrudes above the base of the channel opening.
