Key Considerations for Choosing the Perfect Railings

1. Project Requirements

Before exploring railing options, it is essential to understand your project’s specific requirements. Consider commercial building codes, safety regulations, architectural style, and intended use. By outlining project requirements upfront, your project management team can help you narrow down the railing choices that align with the project’s objectives.

2. Flexibility of Railings

One key aspect to consider when choosing railings is their flexibility in design and installation. Opting for flexible aluminum railings ensures they can adapt to various project scenarios and site conditions. Whether you are dealing with high-rise construction, curved surfaces, or unique architectural features, flexible architectural aluminum railing systems can accommodate these challenges seamlessly.

3. Custom Built to Fit Site Variations

Considering the requirements of each multifamily project, custom-built railings are tailored to precise measurements and design specifications, making them ideal for projects with unique requirements or architectural designs. Your railing manufacturer and project management team will utilize their expertise to help you custom design the ideal railing systems for your specific project requirements.

4. Mock-Up Railings

When required by the stakeholders, after all the CAD drawings have been approved, project specific mock-ups can be created to ensure that the chosen railings properly align with the project’s design vision and requirements. Mock-ups allow stakeholders to visualize how the railings will look and function in real-world settings, allowing stakeholders to easily adjust or modify the railings as needed by providing a tangible representation of the proposed railing system. This proactive approach helps prevent costly rework or design changes during later stages of the project.
