About This Project

THE iRAIL™ ILLUMINATED RAILING SYSTEM

The iRAIL™ LED illuminated rail is a lighted version of our 1.5” dia. rail.  IRAIL ™ uses an ADA compliant roll formed (monolithic) slotted rail, that houses a high-performance LED assembly. VIVA iRAIL™ uses a specially designed LED that can provide full-length coverage of illumination for whatever your rail run may be.  The LED rails are controlled by a box hidden near the railing system and can be modified to best suit your needs.  From low dim light to a bright white, VIVA’s LED Illuminated Railing System is a great way to add safety along the entirety of a walkway or stairwell rather than one bright spot.

ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS – AUSTIN

Over 50,000 students call the University of Texas-Austin home.  One of the largest schools in Texas, UT devices into several smaller schools that reside within the campus.  One of them is the Moody College of Communication.  Majors in advertising, communication sciences, radio, television & film are just a few of the degrees prospective students can strive for.  UT Austin recently added a 300-foot bridge that connects the recently renovated Belo Center and the Moody College of Communication.  The Belo Center is home to 120,000 square feet of high-tech classrooms and meeting spaces. Both of these buildings go hand in hand with advertising connected by the new Moody Pedestrian Skybridge.  VIVA was chosen by Flintco Construction & Lawrence Group to bring this bridge to life with our iRAIL™ rail systems.
