LOCATION: Indianapolis, Indiana
ARCHITECT: Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf
RAILING: Hollaender Interna-Rail VUE Clear Anodized Finish
INFILL: Clear Tempered Glass 3/8” thick & Perforated Steel


Architectural firm Browning Day, tasked with the design for the YMCA at CityWay in Indianapolis,
was looking for a railing design that was diversified enough to handle both glass infill panels
and metal infill panels. A common railing design with different infill panels for both stairs and
mezzanines would offer a wider range of aesthetics than one uniform infill panel system.

Hollaender was able to adapt the Interna-Rail VUE railing system, typically was exclusively with glass or resin infill panels, to accept the perforated metal infill that was desired for the stairs. The result is an attractive, varied railing system, that met the architect’s preference and YMCA’s cost, aesthetic and operational criteria.

Nick Davis of Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf said, “The Hollaender rail system provided
a great combination of attractive design, visual transparency, price point and ease of installation. We will certainly consider Hollaender for our future projects.”
