Middletown High School, NY

This project was completed towards the end of 2020 at Middletown High School, Middletown NY. The job involved attaching a glass and stainless steel railing to a 12″ high knee wall using Q-Railing face mounted posts. There were also several stainless steel stair balustrades and a continuous handrail along the sides of the access ramps.

The coronavirus caused several delays to the construction elements of the project which meant that our installation had to be completed in a timely fashion.

Q-Railing side mount posts were installed to tiled surface on the knee wall. This required strengthening the tile surface by adding anchoring cement and epoxy filler. A single 5/8″ bolt was epoxied into the wall using a Hilti Epoxy Cement. This supported the 1.9″ post and the glass 1/2″ tempered glass panels.

On the top of the glass a continuous stainless steel cap rail was installed. Mystic Stainless provided the welding and polishing services from their workshop and on site.

The stair handrails were fabricated by the Wagner Company and then modified by Mystic Stainless.

The continuous stainless steel handrail was fabricated on site using Q-Railing components.

Project File – Frameless Glass Guardrail – Bedford, NY

This installation involved the installation of 1/2″ ‘Starfire’ tempered glass onto the side of an Ipe deck. The glass was attached using Q-Railing stand-off mounts every 24″ or so. Additional holes were provided so that the carpenters could attach a wood facia to the deck structure to conceal the fasteners. 

This project was completed in collaboration with The Glen Gate Company of Wilton, CT.

In order to provide both pool code compliance and satisfy the building code for guardrails several of the glass panels were fabricated oversize and braced to each other using stainless steel clamps. Gates were installed using stainless steel posts as support.
