All-glass railings & box-type stringer stairs | BOA VISTA Hamburg

The BOA VISTA is an impressive and prestigious office and apartment complex which is situated in the Portuguese quarter in Hamburg. In Portuguese this expression means something like "beautiful view" - indeed an appropriate name for a building offering a fantastic look to the harbour, the church of St. Michael's and the river Elbe.

All-glass railings realised in MetallArt technique with glass pocket

To underline BOA VISTA's exclusive character MetallArt manufactured numerous all-glass railings as well as a steel staircase with box-type stringers and another all-glass railing.

All-glass railings are absolutely in line with the trend and ensure the maximum possible transparency as this practical example shows. Due to own licences with general test certificates issued by the building authorities (AbP) it was possible for MetallArt to exceed the dimensions of the individual glass panes for the all-glass railings (defined in DIN 18008-4 category B).
