Architect: JDavis Architects
Glazier: Emmitsburg Glass Company
JDavis Architects specified the guardrail for the main stairway defining the entrance of the Woodbury Apartments in Baltimore Maryland, and glazier Emmitsburg Glass Company in Emmitsburg, Maryland, selected Glass+Metal Craft to deliver the glass and hardware.
Upon review of the specified mounting system, G+MC drew on its family of proprietary OBEX™ Engineered Glass & Metal Guardrail Architectural Systems to suggest an alternative proven mounting approach that would ease installation and facilitate long-term maintenance.
G+MC fabricated the guardrail from ¼-on-¼ inch laminated low-iron glass, including CNC machined holes for mounting to demanding tolerances. G+MC then helped design the brushed bronze handrails, and managed the delivery to flow installation.
The availability of the pre-engineered OBEX system kept the installation on-time and within budget, despite the transition within the project schedule to the more user-friendly mounting system.
