Durable yet dapper

During the construction of the Sun Suites in Charlotte, N.C., the Atlanta-based extended-stay hotel chain specified PVC railing instead of wood to reduce short- and long-term maintenance costs. The hotel's railing is designed to provide a hotel exterior that requires little upkeep to maintain its attractiveness. Constructed from 100 percent UV-stabilized high-impact extruded PVC, the railing is approved for guardrail applications.
