TimberTech Radiance Rail is easy to install, and this composite decking solution provides long-lasting results. Here’s a quick guide to installation.

  • Install post sleeves & skirts – Begin by installing the posts into the post holes, and slipping the post sleeves & skirts over them. Trim, if necessary, to an ideal height of 38.5”. 
  • Cut top & bottom rail – Next, trim the top & bottom rails to length. The rail can be cut 1/8 inch shorter if you are using gaskets for 90° cuts. 
  • Assemble brackets onto rails – Assemble the bracket hardware onto both the top and bottom rails using pre-drilled holes and coated screws. 
  • Attach foot blocks to bottom rail – For sections up to 6’, one-foot block is needed in the center of the rail. For sections between 6’ to 8’, space two-foot blocks at 1/3 intervals on the rail. 
  • Install bottom rail – Pre-drill holes in the posts, and attach the bottom rail in the proper position using coated screws. 
  • Attach balusters & top rail – Place the balusters into the pre-routed holes in the bottom rail, and slide the top rail over the posts and balusters. Screw the top rail in place. 
  • Install post caps – Finally, attach the post caps to the tops of the posts, and snap them into place. This completes the installation process.
