  • Metal ornamental railing systems can provide an elegant and functional finishing touch to a building project. However, it is important for architects to understand the difference between the types of materials available, as well as where and how the railing system is manufactured, and how it will be installed. By understanding these aspects of the railing feature, architects can better manage this part of the building project. This course discusses the overall advantages of choosing a custom-fabricated railing system built 100% off-site (prefabricated) compared to off-the-shelf products or locally fabricated railings. In addition to looking at the practical considerations of how different fabrication choices affect project time and budget, this course also identifies some ways to address health, safety, and building occupant welfare.
