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 Ascent® post-supported glass windscreen, Ocula offers optimal versatility with its innovative post-free, clamp-supported design.
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, the system can withstand winds loads up to 86psf, which is 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 43” guardrail, 48” pool surround, or 60” balcony divider. Custom heights are also available, along with multiple top cap and handrail options.
