Railing System: Ferric™
Location: Washington, DC
Architect: Alliance Architecture
Contractor:  Hitt Contracting

For 1333 New Hampshire Avenue’s Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute offices, HDI supplied a Ferric™ railing system solution. In addition to providing unobstructed views, this system needed to be durable and low maintenance.

Alliance Architecture set out to create an experience that would wow their clients, as a building should be more than just a place to work. Using Ferric™ railings, HDI created a railing system that would be both practical and elegant to achieve Alliance Architecture’s vision. Alliance Architecture and HITT Contracting worked closely with HDI Railing Systems to ensure a seamless installation.

Ferric™ railing systems define your space in a truly dynamic way. For this particular project the modern railing aesthetic complements the natural vegetation beautifully. In addition it allows plenty of light to flood through the glass infill panels.

HDI offers prefabricated and custom stair railing systems that help you achieve eco-friendly design objectives. HDI’s sales and technical teams have installed thousands of custom railing systems around the world and are ready to help you choose the right material and finish for your next railing system.
