CINCINNATI, OH – When Josh Held, president of Josh Held Design, was asked by the Las Vegas based The Light Group, in collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, to design a new 38,000 foot nightclub at Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, he knew he would need to build a stunning new space capable of standing up to the abuse and heavy foot traffic that's common at popular Las Vegas nightclubs.
Mr. Held's concept was to build a room that had a warehouse feel with industrial influences. A key part of that concept involved the handrail system, and Mr. Held and his team chose Hollaender's Speed-Rail® based aluminum handrail system. Although the Hollaender handrail system was built using stock components, it has a distinct and custom feel. Hollaender was able to engineer the handrail system and Speed-Rail components to incorporate Carl Stahl Décor Cable™ infill panels. This feature maximized transparency, while meeting all code requirements for lateral forces. In order to achieve a matte black finish for the total railing system, a combination of black anodizing and black powder coat finishes were applied to all components.
Speed-Rail is a line of structural slip-on pipe fittings that are used with aluminum, galvanized steel, stainless steel and black iron pipe to construct handrail, safety rail and guardrail, as well as a wide variety of unique modular pipe and fitting based structures.
