Railing System Products
The Hollaender Manufacturing Company produces a wide array of architectural hand railing systems, from non-welded aluminum rails to stainless steel structural glass. Our recognized railing designs include Interna-Rail®, Speed-Rail® and Newman by Hollaender™ (formerly known as Newman Brothers Railing).
These hand and guard railing systems meet the IBC and ADA codes. The Hollaender engineering staff can provide delegated design services to demonstrate our compliance, if needed.
are available in a wide variety of materials, all of which have been tested to meet the IBC code. We offer tempered glass in both monolithic and laminated, along with resin panels in both PETG and acrylic. Metal panels can be supplied in mesh, perforated or a more exotic pattern. Material for these metal panels range from aluminum to e-coated steel to stainless steel.
Finishes are available for our hand rails in a wide range of different patterns, colors and textures. Aluminum systems can be anodized with clear and bronze options, or powder coated in almost any color imaginable for your job requirement. Our steel infill panels are produced in the same wide array of colors, but are first e-coated to protect against corrosion. Our stainless steel rail systems look great with a direction or circular brush, and panels can also be supplied in a bright dip.
Newman by Hollaender™ (formerly Newman Brothers Railing) Structural Glass railing is an all stainless steel system. The structural glass railing has an extruded aluminum shoe that is encased with cladding that can be either stainless steel or aluminum. Top caps or rails are available in round and U-channel forms in materials and finishes that match the cladding as well as the assist rail. Wood is a popular option.
Newman by Hollaender™ Button Glass Railing is an engineered railing system designed for side mounting to adequate structural mounting surface giving the impression of a “glass wall".
The glass railing, typically 42 inches high above the walking surface, is point or button mounted to stringer on level or stairs. Since the actual height of the glass above the button mounts is in the order of 48 to 52 inches, the glass must be structurally sound enough to meet code and be “comfortably safe". Due to the height, glass is either 3/4" thick in monolithic or 13/16" thick in either PVB or SGP laminated.
Smoke baffles can be mounted directly to the ceiling or may be concealed behind the ceiling. In either case, installation is easy and cladding can be selected to match the surrounding aesthetic.
Our smoke baffles are engineered to meet the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) standard for installation of sprinkler systems (Chapter 13) as well as IBC 2012/7188.8.131.52 Fire and Smoke Protection Features.
Features and Benefits
This system uses the glass infill up to 42 inch height requirement and does not have a top cap on the glass. - the glass is captured at the post, not top and bottom - minimizes the amount of horizontal rails in the system, thus maximizing visibility.
Posts are attached with a grabrail or handrail at 36 inches above the walking surface on level, ramp, and stair railings.
The result - while maintaining structural integrity, this glass railing with no top cap provides more visibility than competitive railing systems.
Hollaender's new Interna-Light™ aluminum railing system uses LED fixtures (LEDpod™) to produce point source lighting that meets decorative or IBC egress lighting codes, as required in all states. PE stamped calcs and/or drawings available at an additional charge.
Hollaender® post and wall mounted handrail is available in an anodized aluminum non-welded mechanical tee connection system.
Hollaender's Interna-Rail® VUE railing in stainless steel for glass and acrylic infill panels offers what architects and owners the two most desirable features:
The VUE stainless steel handrail system is a post mounted glass system where the glass panels are held at the posts, not the top and bottom rails. This minimizes the number of horizontal rails in the system which maximizes visibility.
VISION railing is a stainless steel railing system with “in-line" panel clips that support the infill panel available in 304 SS (standard) or 316 SS (optional).
Although the standard infill is glass, metal infills in stainless steel are available in wire mesh and perforated designs, with 304 SS as standard or 316 as an option. Acrylic and other custom infill materials are also available.
Our stainless steel ADA compliant handrail systems are fabricated from either 304 SS (standard) or 316 SS which is ideal for highly corrosive environments such as natatoriums, coastal areas, etc. With all connections and transitions ground and polished to show a smooth, seamless surface, this railing is at the height of architectural design.
Post and wall mounted handrail is available in either 304 or 316 stainless steel. Stainless steel is available as either a non-welded mechanical tee connection system or a welded system. No. 4 polish is standard with other polishes available.
Hollaender's new Interna-Light™ illuminated stainless steel railing system uses LED fixtures (LEDpod™) to produce point source lighting that meets decorative or IBC egress lighting codes, as required in all states. PE stamped calcs and/or drawings available at an additional charge.
Powdercoat colors are available in a wide variety of colors with the standard being TGIC Polyester, a highly weather resistant and durable coating. Depending on the color requirement, TGIC Polyester products that are compliant with either AAMA 2603 or 2604 may also be available.
Hollaender's Speed-Rail® fittings are ideal for this application because the aluminum-magnesium 535 alloy used to manufacture them is:
