Aluminum Railing Facts – General
The prime functions of aluminum railing are:
- to provide safety measures on decks above ground level
- to define exterior space or provide privacy
- to eliminate maintenance
- to provide a durable, long lasting and waterproof railing system.
Aluminum Railing Construction
Durarail railing systems are manufactured in North America and are produced from sturdy, non-corrosive aluminum. The intricately designed extrusion process and precision welded components present excellent strength.
Durarail’s framework uses the 6063-T5 alloy and the posts are made of the even stronger 6005A-T61 alloy. The .070-inch wall thicknesses of the extrusions are the heaviest in the industry, which makes for an extremely strong system. The stronger the structure, the wider the spans between the posts. This provides for better visual appearance and view. The heavy wall thickness of the aluminum, the quality extrusion process and the fastening system give Durarail the exceptional spans it has achieved. They are among the widest in the industry.
After the aluminum components are manufactured, they are entirely sealed with our 4-stage powder-coating finish, the most popular industrial coating in the world today.
The Durarail aluminum railing system will still be performing long after many of the other building materials have been replaced.
