New VIP drink rail from Sightline Commercial Solutions


Sightline Commercial Solutions, a fabricator and global supplier of architectural railing, metal, glazing and portable platform systems, has launched a new VIP Drink Rail system for hands-free viewing at venues.

Made from high-quality, lightweight aluminium, the VIP Drink Rail provides accommodation for concessions, beverages and personal belongings. The Sightline team designed its newest offering to be optimally versatile, for utilisation across multiple applications to enhance the seating capacity and comfort of a venue.

“Our VIP Drink Rail is a smart and sleek solution that can be incorporated into almost any area of a sports or entertainment facility, from loge boxes and field suites to VIP lounges, club decks and ADA-compliant sections,” said Ray Byrnes, Western sales manager for Sightline Commercial Solutions. “It’s also ideal for use in concourse areas to cater to spectators who prefer to stand and socialise during a game or event.”

Sightline said its VIP Drink Rail is not only sturdy and durable, but also resistant to corrosion, ensuring it will withstand the test of time, even in harsh weather conditions, without rusting or deteriorating.

The railing system delivers a contemporary aesthetic. Its streamlined design features drink top surfaces with leg supports that blend with the natural surroundings to optimise sightlines in key areas around a venue.

Components are available in heights for seated (30in), counter (36in) and bar/standing (42in) configurations with the option to select a variety of surface lengths. Customers can choose from six anodised or powder-coated finishes, including Glossy Black, Flat Black, Blue, Green, Grey and Anodized Silver.

Additionally, Sightline offers a range of optional accessories for added convenience, including hooks to hang purses, coats or other items; modesty panels, available in full-height or shortened panels that can be tailored with custom laser-cut designs; and integrated power/USB outlets.

“A big part of creating a positive experience for fans is making them feel special and important,” noted Courtney Schmitz, Eastern sales manager for Sightline Commercial Solutions. “Seemingly small touches like hooks and USB ports can make a big impact and leave a lasting impression that drives buzz and keeps them coming back.”

The new VIP Drink Rail

Using Sightline’s in-house tube laser and automated sheet metal laser, the VIP Drink Rail can be fabricated in custom shapes and sizes and customised to feature team or company logos, seat numbers, custom names or virtually any unique design.

The VIP Drink Rail is designed to be simple to install. The company said the lightweight nature of the aluminium makes components easy to manoeuvre and attach to concrete, steel and wood substrates/surfaces without sacrificing structural integrity. Drink tops, legs and mounting baseplates are packaged separately and simply bolt together during installation. Sightline Commercial Solutions offers design-to-delivery support services.
