DRS Rails Lay Foundation for Stunning Designer Glass Wall

Award-Winning Restaurant Design Features DORMA Product

July 14, 2016, Reamstown, Pa. – dorma+kaba Group, one of the top three companies in the global market for access and security solutions, contributed to the award-winning design of Donatos Pizza restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee.


The project has been recognized internationally as the “2016 Design Is...Award Market Winner” in the Retail category. From a field of approximately 450 entries from around the world, Donatos Pizza’s design won the nod from a panel of 17 judges, consisting of experts from within the architectural design community.


A collaborative design team worked with Donatos Pizza to re-define their brand and create an open and inviting space where guests and the restaurant’s associates can better connect with each other.


Shawn McCord, Director of Sales for dorma+kaba’s interior division, worked with the architects on the design of the wall systems. “We worked alongside McGrory Glass in securing the decorative laminated glass that became the hallmark of the dining room.”


DORMA’s black anodized DRS Rail System was specified for the project, providing an elegant base material for a highly specialized red glass wall. With a slim profile that supports maximal expanses of glass, the rail system discreetly floats the glass without obstructing its beauty.


In addition to achieving the design award as retail market winner, the Donatos Pizza design project is also in the running for a People's Choice award, which has voting open through July 15, 2016.
