Case Study: Summit Orthopedics Eagan Clinic & Surgery Center

Beautiful Railings for an Innovative Surgical Care Setting

While the term “orthopedics” may have a cold, mechanical connotation, the designers of the Summit Orthopedics surgery center in Eagan, Minn., wanted to create an environment that was anything but technical.

For this project, TCP’s Line Series was installed to provide both beauty and stable support to patients, while the exterior of the building features TCP’s aluminum-framed Tensiline stainless cable railing.

The interior Line Series stair application includes 1.5” stainless steel wall and post-mounted handrails, skillfully bent to achieve a fluid aesthetic around corners and other radius designs. In addition, the installation’s laminated tempered glass has a .06” white opaque PVB interlayer between two 1/4” panels, creating an 80 percent transparent infill for a bright, airy atmosphere.

Outside, TCP’s Tensiline cable railing offers an ideal choice for the exterior. This guardrail boasts an anodized aluminum frame with 316 stainless steel cable infill.

With patients flying in to the renowned clinic from across the country, the goal was to create an inviting space that would enhance patient experience and perhaps even hasten their recovery by encouraging healing. Trex Commercial Products is proud to have worked with the teams at Pope Architects, Inc., Welsh Architecture, RJM Construction, Brin Contract Glazing and D & M Iron Works to make this vision a reality.
