Overview

Credit: 3 PDH

Length: 64 pages

In every major city, premier addresses flaunt high-end, high-rise residential towers. On these towers, row upon row of sleek railings march towards the heights, declaring at least small pieces of outdoor space as being for private use only.

In conjunction with the design of the whole structure, these railings form a large part of the aesthetic of these projects. They are one of the most visible components of the structure. All the while, the rails do the job for which they were designed. That is keeping those behind them alive.

This course examines the materials and methods used to construct barriers against fatal falls. Codes governing the performance of railings are examined, because safety is the primary justification for such regulations. Various ways to meet those guidelines are discussed. Different looks made possible by technology are covered in detail. Finally, the challenges faced by busy design firms in choosing, detailing, and specifying these integral building components are examined.

Many new tools for railing design are becoming available to architects, engineers, and builders. 3-D imaging, 3-D modeling, BIM and CAD-CAM programs are changing the perception of what once was possible, especially in the area of renovation projects. New business models are beginning to emerge whereby the development of standard details and standard specifications for railing systems will become practical for busy firms providing services in multiple locales.
