Q-railing has provided its Easy Glass Pro Y-shaped fascia mount solution for the Museum Vlaardingen in the Netherlands. Once the home of a ship owner, now a national monument, the Museum Vlaardingen has a collection that gives visitors an insight into the last 5,000 years of life in the delta of the rivers Rhine and Maas in the Netherlands.
The museum's brief included integration of an adjacent building and a detached warehouse to its rear. Where old meets new, glazed apertures have been created in the existing exterior masonry walls. The resulting sightlines reveal the museum's spatial complexity, with loft-like heights and dynamic views, tempting and drawing visitors into the spaces that lie beyond.
The architects collaborated with Q-railing, ultimately narrowing in on the Easy Glass Pro Y-shaped fascia mount solution. In addition to providing a completely transparent balustrade solution, the railing system offered the ability to make fine adjustments to the positioning of each glass panel from the inner (installation) side. This proved invaluable when it was installed on the various sections of finished concrete flooring levels.
