Railings

Standard and custom railings can be designed in an almost limitless way with the chosen components that are able to be arranged into an acceptable system. Whatever railing design you can imagine can be assembled into a "custom railing" system.  We have the ability to convert ideas into functional handrails and guardrails. Applications that require guardrails by code must have a minimum 42" high railing with pickets capable of rejecting a 6" or 4" sphere and meet the structural requirements of the governing code. To achieve custom designs we use castings, posts, pickets, and caps, as well as stamped, laser cut, or CNC machined pickets. To further achieve a custom look, we can utilize spun hollow posts and pickets, special custom extrusions, and epoxy resin molded shapes. These components can be powder coated in a wide range of standard or custom colors and come 1 year, 5 year or 10 year warranty periods depending upon coating type. Anodized finishes are available if desired.

Lateral & Bridge Railing systems are more architecturally unique and tend to be more dramatic in effect than picket railing systems. Lateral railing systems provide a linear horizontal accent to buildings and can also be fabricated in two and three lines for industrial use. Lateral railing systems consist of a series of horizontal members spaced in the proper "sphere code" configuration to form the "infill". The system is then supported by vertical posts that are spaced to meet structural loads.

Picket Rail Systems

Picket railing systems are the most widely specified and used, due to the fact that they are generally the most economical to fabricate and install. In addition, they can be easily upgraded to include rings, finials or cast aluminum elements which enhance visual appeal at relatively low cost.

Lateral Rail Systems

Lateral railing systems are generally more architecturally dramatic but they also tend to be more costly to fabricate and install. Lateral systems provide a linear horizontal accent to buildings and can be specified in 2 or 3 lines for exterior D.O.T. and industrial use. Lateral systems usually consist of a series of all horizontal members spaced to the proper “sphere code” requirement forming the “infill”. The system is then supported by vertical posts spaced to meet the structural loads.

Glass Rail Systems

Glass railing systems are considered very high end and sophisticated. They are generally “transparent”, allowing for the other architectural features of the building to show through more clearly with a subtle accent from the handrailing.

Glass systems usually consist of a horizontal top rail, a horizontal bottom rail to capture the glass, vertical posts to support the system and glass as the “infill”.

Generally speaking, glass systems can be two side supported, four side supported or structural, whereby the glass itself provides the bulk of the load support.

Glass used in either supported or structural systems must conform to current national and local building codes. Such codes generally call for glass to be laminated and/or tempered with thicknesses that can run from 7/16 inch to 3/4 inch.
