Project Overview

Category: Universities
Location: Detroit, TX
General Contractor: Turner Construction
Architect: Neumann/Smith Architecture

THE BLADE™ GLASS RAILING SYSTEM

Our BLADE™ Stainless Steel Railing System has an ultra-contemporary design with minimum obstruction to the line of sight. The system consists of two 2” wide vertical bars, with a cube cap at the top and barrel bolts at the bottom. This expertly-crafted system makes it appear as though the in-fill panels are suspended in air! This modern handrail design is available in powder-coated colors and with an option for LED illuminated rail.

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.
