What Deck Railing Options Are Available? With all the choices in composite decking today it is no surprise that there are a wide range of deck railing options. When choosing a deck railing, it often comes down to the colour and whether or not it should have glass panels or balusters.
1. Glass Railing – Glass railing panels are often the top choice when someone wants an unobstructed view from their deck. They are a perfect choice for lake front, ocean front, or acreage properties where the view does not want to be missed. Invisirail is a brand of glass railing that is topless. Topless glass means that there is no top rail that would block/impede the view. Topless glass railing panels are 10mm glass and have sleek stainless steel posts that hold the panels. Fortress Railing offers a glass railing that has a top rail. This is often a more economical glass railing option than topless glass railings as a thinner tempered glass can be used with this type of system.
2. Aluminum Railing – Powder coated aluminum deck railing is often a top choice for a highly durable and long lasting product. Available in white or black, Fortress railing offers a fully pre-welded aluminum railing system.
3. Composite Railing – If you are looking for a deck railing in a colour other than white or black, then a composite railing system is the right choice for you. Composite railings are maintenance free and allow for customization of profiles & colours. Trex deck railing offers the most colours in more component profiles than other railings. Trex Transcend Composite Railing or Fiberon Symmetry Railing are both high quality composite deck railing options.
