JW Marriott (Mall of America) features ArchitectuRAIL™

The luxurious JW Marriott hotel was a recent addition to a wing of the Mall of America located in Bloomington, MN.

SC Railing contributed stainless steel ArchitectuRAIL Point Series and Base Shoe railing systems to the grand lobby and balcony overlooks. The Point Series railing system is a side mounted system utilizing 2 ½” stainless steel nodes.

For the JW Marriott, a drilled and tapped steel plate was field welded to the steel embed. The Point Series nodes were then mechanically fastened to the plate.

The Base Shoe railing system includes a top mounted ½” glass shoe anchored to the structural slab. A stainless steel handrail at 36” helps minimize glass deflection while maintaining clear sightlines between floors.

The ½” low iron tempered glass utilized throughout this project was fabricated by Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope, and installed by W. L. Hall Company.
