Project Overview

Category: Hospitality
Location: Chicago, IL
General Contractor: Proarc
Architect: Oomo

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 iRAIL™ System is a LED illuminated version of our 1.5” diameter rails. iRAIL uses an ADA compliant roll-formed (monolithic) slotted rail, that houses a high-performance LED assembly. VIVA iRAIL™ uses a specially designed LED that can provide full-length coverage of illumination for whatever your rail run may be, compared to the traditional LED railing assemblies that were only available in preset section lengths. Lighting is available in warm or bright white with either a clear or diffused lens.
