Boone County Cooperative Extension Services in Burlington, KY working in conjunction with Ft. Mitchell Kentucky’s Robert Ehmet Hayes & Associates Architects, were in search of a railing system for the stairway and mezzanine at the Boone County Enrichment Center.
The new handrail needed to be visually appealing, low maintenance, and cost efficient. After an extensive review process, the decision was made to install Hollaender’s Interna-Rail® VUE aluminum railing system with glass infill panels designed and built by Hollaender® Manufacturing Company out of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Boone County Cooperative Extension Services provides community outreach services to local residents. They recently added a seven-million-dollar expansion to their now 20,000 square foot Enrichment Center.
The expansion called for a railing system for their open stairwell and mezzanine. While initially considering resin/acrylic infill panels, the design team ultimately felt that a glass infill system better met their needs for aesthetics, transparency and cost.
The Hollaender Interna-Rail® VUE railing system that was installed consists of a bronze anodized aluminum frame with clear tempered 3/8” thick glass infill panels.
The solution from Hollaender provided the desired aesthetics and functionality at an affordable price. The versatility of Hollaender’s component/non-welded design was an added benefit to everyone involved in the project.
After completion of the project Joe Hayes, principal and architect for Robert Ehmet Hayes & Associates Architects stated ""
Hollaender’s® Interna-Rail® VUE handrail system is an offset, post mounted fitting based railing system for glass and resin infill panels, designed to combine the clean look of welded rail with all the benefits of a mechanical system.
Interna-Rail® systems can be designed to meet any building code and are being used throughout the world in architectural, public works, and stadium applications.
