Laurence has introduced another innovation in its line of award winning glass railing systems. The new B5G Series Square Base Shoe, designed for use with CRL’s patented TAPER-LOC® Dry Glazed Railing System, offers the same features and performance of our popular B5S Series, but it's formed using less metal, making it 20% lighter.  The B5G's design make it less expensive than the B5S Series, and because of it’s lighter weight it also saves on shipping costs.

  • Environmentally Friendly New Design Uses 20% Less Aluminum
  • Meets or Exceeds All Railing Code Requirements
  • Less Expensive Than the Popular B5S Series Base Shoe
  • Lighter Weight Makes it Easier to Handle Plus it Costs Less To Ship

It's available undrilled or pre-drilled for surface mount (Hole Pattern "D") or fascia mount (Hole Pattern "F").
