Glass windscreen provides views

Trex Commercial Products’ Ascent Windscreen System is a post-supported glass windscreen with an 80-psf qualified wind load. It has an aluminum snap-fit system with concealed fasteners. With one side of a post in place, glass is positioned in front of the system and held by double-sided foam tape, which holds the first pane while a second pane is installed. A cover snaps in front to secure glass. To prevent corrosion, posts are secured with an embedment or welded base plate, avoiding contact with concrete. Four finishes are offered: powder-coating, paint, Kynar and anodized.
