Installation Considerations for Aluminum Railing Systems
Durarail railing systems can be installed with either a surface mount or a fascia mount.
Your local building codes may dictate which option you choose. The type of deck surface you have is also a consideration in how you choose to have your railings mounted.
With vinyl membrane deck surfaces, we recommend a fascia mount. While it is possible to surface mount your railings on a vinyl deck, use of a raised base plate is recommended to avoid points of waterproofing vulnerability to check during your annual deck inspection.
