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).
Multi-Family Residential Facilities usually involve a combination of exterior balconies and interior stairs and mezzanines etc. As such, corrosion resistance is key, and most architects and owners specify aluminum or stainless steel for corrosion resistance reasons. Since most multi-family residential buildings involve high volumes of railing, cost is an important factor, a good reason why aluminum is very popular.
Railing types for Residential Applications
Hollaender’s non-welded Interna-Rail®, Speed-Rail® and VUE® systems, with a variety of infill material choices such as glass and metal mesh and perforated metal are popular options at a reasonable price.
Where shoe mounted glass railing is wanted for visibility reasons, Newman by Hollaender Structural Glass Railing offers a variety of cladding for the shoe, a variety of shapes and materials for top cap and assist rail:
- Stainless Steel
- Round/channel shapes
VUE railing with glass or acrylic infill is ideal for situations where a post mounted system is preferred to a shoe-mounted system.
In areas where there is concern about durability and visibility, Interna-Rail® aluminum railing with wire mesh infill is a popular choice. Perforated metal infills offer more privacy when required.
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.
Multiple finish options are available, from anodized aluminum in clear, black and dark bronze finish, to powder coat that meets AAMA 2604 standards for UL resistance. Hollaender steel infill panels are produced in a wide array of colors and 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.
