Project Overview

Category: Universities
Location: Austin, TX
General Contractor: Flintco
Architect: Perkins+Will

Our FRAME is a structural metal panel system that is picture framed with your favorite perforated metal. Wide edges of FRAME create a bold statement with an art deco look. The supporting base is minimalistic, almost out of sight, giving you a floating metal panel. Wide frame also creates an integral top guard edge, eliminating the need for the added top cap. Handrails can be added for stair applications, select from a range of stainless or wood rails, and add lighting via VIVA iRail Linear or Pod LED.

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.
