Hollaender Manufacturing Company produces a wide array of architectural railing systems. These hand and guard railing systems can be designed to fit individual projects by engineers at Hollaender.
VISION railing is a stainless steel railing system with “in-line” panel clips to support the infill panel. Glass or other infill panels are retained by 4 rounded panel clips. Glass panels will have holes for the bottom 2 clips. Glass infill is available in 3/8” monolithic or 7/16” laminated glass. Assist rails in stainless are available for stairs or for level railing as an option.

The standard infill is glass, however, metal infills in stainless steel are available in wire mesh and perforated designs, with 304 SS as standard or 316 as an option. Acrylic and other custom infill materials are also available.
- Tempered glass, either monolithic or laminated
- Resin panels in both PETG and acrylic
- Mesh metal panels, perforated or a more exotic pattern in a choice of materials from aluminum to e-coated steel to stainless steel.
Finishes come in a range of patterns, colors, and textures. Aluminum systems can be anodized with clear and bronze options, or powder-coated in almost any color; Steel infill panels are produced in the same wide array of colors but are first e-coated to protect against corrosion. Panels can also be supplied in a bright dip.
