Hollaender® Manufacturing Brings Transparency to Italpollina Manufacturing Plant
CINCINNATI, OH (September 14, 2018) – Hollaender Manufacturing, manufacturer of Interna-Rail® KLEAR aluminum railing systems, was chosen by architect Kevin Montgomery of krM Architecture to a provide a high impact, but nearly transparent railing system at the new Italpollina manufacturing plant in Anderson, Indiana.
Italpollina is a world leader in the production of organic fertilizers, beneficial microbials, and natural biostimulants. The new plant is one of the world’s largest biostimulant production facilities for use in agriculture, and also serves as Italpollina’s North American headquarters. It was commissioned in June 2018, and its official grand opening will take place this fall.
To adorn the entrance lobby and mezzanine of the new facility, Mr. Montgomery was in search of a railing system that maximized transparency. With glass steps part of the design, Hollaender’s Interna-Rail KLEAR railing was chosen to allow the transparent views. Glass panels affixed to the Interna-Rail system eliminate the need for a top rail and fulfill dimensional requirements of 42 inches in height. Top rails would have obstructed sight lines. A glass wall feature, also constructed of Interna-Rail components, added depth and height to the design, creating a striking architectural feature.
Hollaender’s Interna-Rail railing systems are sleek, strong and durable. In-line fittings make this aluminum railing system easy-to-install and produce a unique architectural appearance. An offset panel attachment provides an uninterrupted infill panel railing system that allows architects to make their chosen panel design the focal point of the installation. Interna-Rail systems can be designed to meet any building code and are being used throughout the world in architectural, public works, and stadium applications.
