Dickies Arena is Fort Worth’s new crown jewel and go-to destination for sports, concerts and major events, such as the annual Stock & Rodeo Show.

At 750,000 square feet, the multipurpose venue features 14,000 linear feet of custom architectural railing from Trex Commercial Products. Railing types include picket, cable, guardrail, LED handrail and glass railing, designed to enhance the accessibility, safety and overall fan experience inside and outside the arena.

The railings complement the building’s stunning art deco architecture, most prominent on the stairs, balconies and pedestrian bridge. Iconic prairie motifs are incorporated in the metalwork and railings, as well.

A highlight of this project are the octagonal and helical spiral staircases, where the Trex Commercial Products engineering team utilized 3D laser scanning technology to design and fabricate the unique dimensions of the guardrail system.
