The University of North Texas in Denton features the free standing posts. (FSR) Rails and posts both are available in 1.5” diameter stainless steel railing in SS304 and SS316 alloys. iRail (LED illuminated rail) option is also available for FSR. Free Standing Rails can be core mount, top flange mount, welded to steel or weld to concrete embed. Typical applications include stadium railing, stair railing, ramps, handrails and building entrance ramps. Housing not only our aluminum SHOE™ glass, the FSR railing system is featured throughout the new student union.
The University of North Texas is one of the largest Texas Universities with over 100 Bachelor’s programs alone. The student union is where hard working students come together to study, relax, eat and take part in student affairs. The new bookstore and restaurants like Chick-Fil-A, Burger King, and even a Starbucks make the student union a popular hangout. Surrounding the facility are unique hanging sculptures, the classic “mean green” color, inspirational quotes hanging on the ceiling and on the floors and even the eagle mascot logo is etched right into our SHOE™ aluminum glass railing.
