Perforated Metal Highlights Spokane Stairwell

Perforated Metal adds security and contemporary aesthetics to staircase railings at Spokane Community College.

 |  1 min read

The Science and Mathematics Building at Spokane Community College was built at the campus entrance and introduced a contemporary building into the campus master plan. The building interior was three stories with an atrium lobby, office tower, and classroom lab area. The winding staircase that dominated the lobby required a Designer, quality infill guardrail material that would secure the stair case, complement the open quality of the three stories, and take advantage of night light from the exterior glass wall. The material had to be low maintenance, light-diffusing, and durable enough to withstand heavy student traffic. More importantly, it had to be flexible to allow fabrication in angled-cut sheets to match the slant and turns of the staircase.
