Track Rail with stainless steel cap offers sleek styling and support while blending with the museum’s minimalist look.

Housing one of the largest collections of art and design in the Southeast, Charlotte’s Mint Museum boasts a modern, minimalist aesthetic. Featured throughout the interior, Trex Commercial Products’ glass railings add to the ambiance while helping visitors safely explore the oldest museum in South Carolina. We also provided free-standing, lighted stainless handrail on the building’s exterior.
