Metal deck railing options include iron deck railings, powder-coated aluminum deck railing, and galvanized prefabricated deck panels. Each of these options provide excellent performance and durability at a slightly higher cost than wood rails or metal balusters. Aluminum deck railing systems are a non-ferrous metal, which provides excellent performance and will not experience excessive corrosion and rust. Today’s galvanized rail panels with improved coating systems can provide great performance at a slightly lower cost than most aluminum deck railing systems.
Metal rail panels provide Atlanta homeowners the benefits of low maintenance, good structural integrity, and numerous aesthetic options. One big benefit is that factory made systems typically will have a better coating and finish than most locally extruded wrought iron rail systems. This provides Marietta Georgia homeowners with predictable performance that’s backed up by a manufacturer’s warranty.
Because the sizing of the upper and lower horizontal members on metal deck railing panels are smaller than wood or manufactured rail systems, they provide a less obstructed view than many deck railing systems on the market. In addition to being installed with matching factory metal rail posts, the panels can be used with vinyl, wood, or brick rail posts to create unique and beautiful blended deck railings.
There are numerous accessory components available including low voltage lighting. A flat rail cap can be installed with some systems and railings can be ordered to fit on radius decks.
Compared to most rail systems, pre assembled deck railing systems are easy to install with factory mounting brackets and rackable stair rail panels.
