Trex Commercial Debuts Ocula™ Frameless Glass Windscreen

Versatile System Offers Industry-Exceeding Wind Protection and Design Flexibility for Commercial Applications

MINNEAPOLIS, April 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trex Commercial, a national leader in engineering and manufacturing architectural railing systems for commercial building applications, is taking outdoor design projects to new heights with the introduction of Ocula, its newest glass windscreen system. Inspired by the success of the company’s award-winning Ascent® post-supported glass windscreen, Ocula offers optimal versatility with its innovative post-free, clamp-supported design.

“Our new Ocula system not only provides protection from the elements, but also enhances views and sophistication with its sleek, unobstructed styling,” said Laura Rygielski Preston, president of Trex Commercial. “The innovative clamp support system delivers a virtually invisible barrier and is highly customizable to accommodate any outdoor setting.”

Ideal for pool surroundings, balcony dividers and elevated overlooks, or to mitigate wind tunneling in courtyards and other open areas, Ocula is an ultra-streamlined windscreen system designed to divert wind while elevating architectural aesthetics. At guardrail height (43”), the system can withstand winds loads up to 86psf – 8x the amount of a standard windscreen. As height is increased, it can withstand wind loads up to 54psf, still far exceeding industry standards.

Ocula features stainless steel clamps suitable for interior or exterior applications and can be paired with view-optimizing clear glass for a barely-there look, or frosted or fritted glass for enhanced privacy. The system is offered in three standard heights for guardrail (43”), pool surround (48”) or balcony divider (60”). Custom heights are also available, along with multiple top cap and handrail options.

“A glass windscreen offers the perfect marriage of form, function and freedom,” noted Rygielski Preston. “Architects no longer have to rely on visually obstructive and confining walls to protect patrons and property from unpleasant dust and gusty winds. With systems like Ascent and Ocula, they can create open, airy environments that celebrate surrounding views while keeping patrons comfortable and sheltered from wind and debris.”
