CINCINNATI, OH (September 22, 2016) – When the architectural firm of Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf (Browning Day) was tasked with designing the new Irsay Family YMCA at CityWay in downtown Indianapolis, they turned to Hollaender® Manufacturing for the handrail system that runs throughout the new facility. The Indianapolis based firm’s design called for a cost effective and versatile railing system that was able to accommodate both glass and metal infill panels. Hollaender’s Interna-Rail® VUE railing system met both the engineering and aesthetic requirements of the project.
To achieve the desired visual impact, Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf’s design called for perforated metal infill panels on stairway railing, and glass infill panels in all other areas. While Hollaender’s Interna-Rail® VUE system is typically used for either glass or resin panels exclusively, Hollander adapted the system to accommodate the requirements for metal infill. The final installed system provided a combination of on-target aesthetics and visual transparency, ease of installation, and at the desired price point.
Hollaender’s Interna-Rail® VUE handrail system is an offset, post mounted fitting based railing system for glass, resin infill panels, and perforated metal, designed to combine the clean look of welded rail with all the benefits of a mechanical system. 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.
