Project Description

Alpha Iron Works’ imprint on RIT’s Institute Hall begins outside with the weathering Corten steel panels we manufactured for the site’s landscape walls. The curvings entrance ramp handrails are single-line stainless steel pipe with machined brackets at the top of the intermediate posts.


Inside, the main stair features an almost invisible laminated glass guardrail system supported by buttons mounted to minimalist stainless steel posts. The attached stainless steel handrails are supported by machined brackets mounted to the glass panels. The railing system is clean, modern and minimalist.
