  • The 2” hard maple handrails are attached to both the glass and the wall, and complement the warm architectural features of the building. Aluminum through-glass standoffs with a bronze anodized finish are used to secure the railing to the glass, while the rail is secured to the wall via aluminum wall-mounted standoffs.
  • The Center’s overlooks were created with TCP’s Track Rail system, which is attached to concrete via epoxy anchors. This railing features 1/2” clear tempered glass with exposed edges on both the overlook and the stairs, polished for a smooth finish.
