Regulations have changed and it is now necessary to have a railing on both sides of the multi level staircase in the Crafts III Visitors Center tower.
Here is Courtney Muller grinding the edges of the railing in place.
We can see the different length pieces cut and welded on an angle, as well as the custom made pieces that fasten the railing to the wall.
Here is Paolo Van Erp welding two of the railing pieces together.
