Category: Universities
Location: Philidelphia, PA
General Contractor: Pencoyd Iron Works, Inc.
Architect: KSS Architects


Our CUBE™ Stainless Steel Railing System has a robust contemporary look. The system is made of 2” x 2” square posts, with monolithic pyramid top caps creating continuous clean lines throughout the components. The railing in-fill between the posts is mounted via fixed point holders and can accommodate any in-fill of your choice.

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.
