The Hollaender Manufacturing Company produces a wide array of architectural hand railing systems, from non-welded aluminum rails to stainless steel structural glass.
Popular Railings for Schools
Some of Hollaender's best-known railing designs include Speed-Rail® and Newman by Hollaender™ (formerly known as Newman Brothers Railing). Interna-Rail® aluminum railing system, with metal infill panels in either wire mesh or perforated metal, is extremely popular in all types of schools.
Infills are available in a wide variety of materials, all of which have been tested to meet the IBC code. Hollaender offers both monolithic and laminated tempered glass, along with resin panels in both PETG and acrylic. Metal panels can be supplied in mesh, perforated or a more exotic pattern. Material for these metal panels ranges from aluminum to e-coated steel to stainless steel.
- Anodized Aluminum
Maintenance departments report that a clear anodized finish on the aluminum is significantly easier to maintain than typical welded, painted steel often chosen for budget reasons.
- Acrylic Resin
When schools want to be more aesthetically interesting, they often select a railing system with acrylic resin panels. Acrylic panels offer more interest, a solid surface and some degree of translucency. They are unbreakable and less fragile than glass, which is important when it comes to providing railings for children.
- Tempered Glass
If glass if required, Hollaender offers laminated, tempered glass railings that are much safer than the typical single sheet, monolithic glass.
- Metal Handrails
In handrail applications, which can carry a lot of traffic and have a lot of skin contact, Hollaender offers both anodized aluminum and stainless steel handrail. Stainless steel is even more durable than anodized aluminum in very heavy traffic applications.
Handrail finishes are available in a wide range of different patterns, colors, and textures. Aluminum systems can be anodized with clear and bronze options, or powder-coated in almost any color imaginable. Hollaender steel infill panels are produced in the same wide array of colors but are first e-coated to protect against corrosion. The stainless steel rail systems look great with a direction or circular brush, and panels can also be supplied in a bright dip.
