CertificationMeets all IBC and OSHA Codes for Railings
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).
Landscape and Park architects and operators tend to specify railing systems that will be durable in outdoor accessibility/guidance but will also have low maintenance cost in high traffic situations where a lot of people are involved. Corrosion resistance is key in these applications and Hollaender offers anodized aluminum and stainless steel (both 304 and 316) railing systems that are far more corrosion resistant than galvanized steel or any type of coated steel.
Hollaender has supplied major railing systems to parks such as the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard Park, Hammonasset State Park in CT and other state and national parks around the US.

LED pod lighting systems are popular in parks and landscapes and can be specified. Laminated glass or acrylic resin panels are also available.
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.
Wire mesh infill is usually requested due to a good combination of clear sightlines and durability. While Hollaender’s Dual Coat system of ecoating and powder coating over steel mesh is the norm, they also provide aluminum mesh panels in coastal areas where proximity to saltwater can cause problems.
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.
