Project Overview

Category: Corporate
Location: Dallas, TX
General Contractor: Austin Commercial
Architect: BOKA Powell


Our SHOE™ Structural Glass Railing System is an aluminum glass railing system with a patented compression set aluminum base shoe system. SHOE™ Glass Railing is perfect for commercial interior or exterior, balcony railing or stair railing applications. In addition, this architectural railing solution provides a fall protection system without the use of an unsightly barrier. SHOE™ Aluminum Glass Railing can be either top or fascia mounted. It is available with a glass bracket mounted handrail, round top cap or a U-channel top cap. Base shoe is available in stainless steel or an anodized aluminum cladding.

VIVA’s tempered glass infills provide optimal line of sight as well as an understated elegance. Our glass infills range from a minimum of 3/8″ PVB or SGP laminated glass. Colored, patterned and frosted glass are additional options based on design intent and need.


One of the newest office buildings in Preston Center, Bandera Preston Tower is leased to both Energy Transfer Partners and Chief Oil & Gas. Featuring over 200,000 square feet of mesquite wood trim, three-story ceiling glass walls in the lobby and wool carpets makes this one of the most elegant office buildings in the area. The building was constructed by Austin Commercial with the architectural conceptions of BOKA Powell. VIVA Railings was chosen to engineer the SHOE™ aluminum glass railing system on the 6th-floor balcony featuring a beautiful outdoor lounge and eating area. With the simplistic clear view of the SHOE™ system, employees can enjoy the Dallas skyline as they relax and grab a bite to eat.
