The Hollaender Manufacturing Company produces a wide array of architectural hand railing systems, from non-welded aluminum rails to stainless steel structural glass. Some of their best-known railing designs include Interna-Rail®, Speed-Rail®, and Newman by Hollaender™ (formerly known as Newman Brothers Railing).
Hollaender has supplied major railing systems to outdoor commercial and retail areas such as Norfolk Premium Outlets in Norfolk, VA ( a Simon property) and Liberty Town Center in Liberty Township, OH.
Retail and commercial applications require a railing system that will be durable in outdoor applications but will also have low maintenance cost in high traffic situations. Hollaender offers both aluminum and stainless steel railings that fit these needs.
Choosing Railing for Retail
Glass infill is often desired due to good visibility and sightlines. Where shoe mounted glass railing is required, Newman by Hollaender Structural Glass Railing offers a variety of cladding for the shoe, a variety of shapes and materials for the top cap and assist rail:
- Stainless Steel
- Round\channel shapes
VUE railing with glass or acrylic infill is ideal for situations a post mounted system as opposed to a shoe-mounted system is best. In areas where there is concern about durability and cost, Interna-Rail® aluminum railing with wire mesh, picket, or perforated metal infill is a popular choice.
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.
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.
