Project Overview

Category: Public
Location: Tulsa, OK
General Contractor: Crossland Construction
Architect: Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects

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.

Our Free Standing Rails (FSR) and posts are both available in 1.5” diameter stainless steel in SS304 and SS316 alloys. FSR posts can be core mounted, top flange mounted, welded to steel or welded to concrete embed. FSRs are excellent for stadium seating rails, building entrance rails, ramps, landscaping rails, stair centerline rails as well as numerous other applications. FSRs are also available with our iRail System (LED lighted rail).


Over 100 acres of outdoor activities, parks, lodges, trails and playground areas surround the new Gathering Place in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Daily events, an overnight lodge, and a soon to be constructed children’s museum are just some of the amenities that make the Gathering Place such a unique place to visit. VIVA Railings was proud to be a part of this massive landmark at the Boathouse Restaurant and Williams Lodge.
