Entrance Flooring Systems
The Barnes Foundation
Tod Williams/Billie Tsien Architects required an entrance flooring system that would preserve the beautiful interior surfaces they had chosen but wanted it to have a high-end style to match the feel of the building. Ballinger chose stainless steel CS Gridline to complement the entryway finishes. Not only is dirt effectively trapped at the door, cutting down on maintenance costs and improving indoor air quality, but the stainless steel properties also offer a beautiful yet sustainable solution.
The use of CS GridLine with its satin finished, type-304 stainless steel rails provides the look and performance desired by the architects. GridLine has a bold appearance and great scraping ability while the 29mm (1-1/8”) depth allows a generous pit in which to collect the snow, water and debris from the shoes of incoming visitors.See full case study
