Glass Magazine Awards 2015: Redefining What's Possible

SC Railing Co. recently launched the ArchitectuRail Configurator, a new online tool created for architects to simplify the process of designing custom railing solutions.
In as few as four steps, architects can “personalize” railing components and create a railing system tailored to a specific project, such as professional sports stadiums and arenas, higher education, corporate, aviation, medical and hospitality facilities among others, according to company officials.
The ArchitectuRail Configurator allows architects to view their actual design virtually and make changes on the fly. Because the new online design tool operates in real time, architects and designers not only get to see their actual design online, they are specifying their railing solution with each option they select, according to SC Railing officials.
To drive additional efficiencies, the online tool immediately emails the design specification selected by the architect or designer. Architects and designers may also choose to request more information specific to their design and engage SC Railing to provide additional product information, photos and CAD drawings, according to officials.
“This tool allows architects and designers to customize railing systems on their schedule, leveraging the experience and broad set of skills our company has developed in working on large-scale projects including: Madison Square Garden, Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco, Target Field in Minneapolis, Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, and AT&T Stadium in Dallas,” says Dan Stachel, SC Railing vice president.
