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.


The UNT Business Leadership Building, or as the students know it, the BLB is housed to fit over 7500 students, over 50 faculty members and a staff of over 50 university workers. One of the top schools of business UT needed an upgrade for the growing number of students to read, study and teach with some of the top faculty in the state. and with HUNT Construction, VIVA, and Jacobs Architects, we brought the new facility into a reality.
