Sports Business Journal recently wrote a piece entitled “Dear 2016 – What a Year it Was” highlighting major stories, who made headlines, the loss of some legends, how facilities got creative and some of the largest facility project completions of the year. SC Railing was fortunate to provide custom decorative railing to several of those large facilities mentioned including U. S. Bank Stadium, Golden 1 Center, Hard Rock Stadium, Rogers Place, The Star and T-Mobile Arena. A total of 107,599 linear feet of custom decorative railing can be found among these facilities. That’s enough decorative railing to span the length of 298 NFL football fields, 1,144 NBA courts, or 537 NHL hockey rinks.

T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV
Undoubtedly, Las Vegas knows how to put on a show, and now it has a 650,000 square-foot, 20,000 seat venue to match its reputation. Part of the arena’s beauty and majesty can be credited to an oft-overlooked (quite literally) attribute that spans the entire venue – over 12,400 linear feet of railing structures. From the outside-in, the railings play a crucial role not only in the arena’s safety and security features, but also in its aesthetic appeal.
The Star in Frisco, CA

SC Railing provided nearly 1,000 feet of custom steel post supported railing which was fascia mounted via a steel plate welded to a structural steel beam. The glass infill consisted of ½” laminated tempered clear glass infill with polished edges. In sections of this project the glass infill was up to 9 feet tall used as the glass railing infill extending down to create a smoke baffle for the underlying floors.
