Project Overview

Category: K-12
Location: Bedford, TX
General Contractor: Lee Lewis Construction
Architect: Huckabee, Inc.


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 perforated metal infill panels feature a solid metal outer frame with rounded, slotted or square motifs. The pattern style of the perforated metal panels can help save on energy, block UV light and reduce noise while still offering a decorative option that is appealing to the eye. Due to our precision in-house engineering, our perforated metal infills have a repeated pattern that is punched into the sheet metal that is smooth on the inside of the railing system and can feature a wide variety of decorative patterns. VIVA has the unique capacity to custom design a pattern that best suits your project needs.
