Can I attach Glass Railing to wood?

Glass Railing shoe moulding is designed to be used with structural, tempered glass. A load placed on the top of a glass railing system is transfered to the base and places very large stresses on the surface and connection. Structural load tests are available which show that when attached to concrete or to a steel plate, Wagner’s glass railing shoe mouldings will withstand the required guardrail loads. Wood surfaces are not consistent in strength and are not recommended for use in a structural glass railing. If you need to attach to a wood surface, you should contact an engineer to determine what additional structure needs to be added under the wood to provide a structural attachment.
