Glass Observation Cab: Mall of America
One Oversized Glass Observation Cab
The system and structure of this glass cab, being enclosed in a glass hoistway, required special consideration to conceal unsightly but necessary mechanical parts and connections. G&R worked directly with various sub-contracting teams to ensure that the operating system coincided with the cab structure.
The floor includes two 7-ft. (l) x 4-in. (w) LED accent lights that are covered with diffusors and non-skid glass. Along the sidewalls and rearwall, double rows of continuous (flat) stainless steel bumper rails and round stainless steel handrails are affixed at the mullions with custom handrail brackets.
