Detail : Handrail attachment to glass panelling on staircase.
Location : The GoMA (Gallery of Modern Art)
Royal Exchange Square,
G1 3AH

I have drawn a detailed sketch of how I believe this handrail is put together with the glass side panels. At the side, I have created the impression of cutting the side of
the handrail, and then in the middle of the sketch, I wanted to show how each layer sits on top of each other. The extruded tubular steel handrail sits on top of the glass panel, however, I believe there is a rubber grip channel which is glued on as it ensures sturdiness and it also prevents the glass from breaking.
