Standard Picket Railing Top Rail Profiles

Durarail offers 4 Top Rail profiles for either our component or welded picket systems.

Picket Railing Top Rail Profiles by Durarail
Square, Round, Heritage, and Port Royal Top Rail options

Durarail’s traditional square and round top rail profiles are still the most popular top rail options used today. In addition, we offer stylish alternatives with the Heritage top rail and the Port Royal top rail. With Heritage Top Rail you get a more designer look. It is a classic, colonial-inspired look familiar from tradition wrought iron. The Port Royal Top Rail allows for a continuous top rail with a brawny, sophisticated look and a wider depth.

Standard Picket Railing Mounting Options

Durarail railings have three mounting options. A fascia mounted system, surface mounted on a raised baseplate, or regular surface mounted.

When it comes to construction projects, there are often Good, Better, and Best recommendations. Railing installation is no different. The type of railing mounting option you choose will be influenced by your local building codes. Your type of deck surface will also factor into the decision.

Why a Single Source for your Deck and Railing Systems Matters

When you choose Durarail to complement your Duradek waterproof vinyl decking system, you gain the advantages that come with a single source solution.

First, your railings are being installed by a contractor that specialized in vinyl deck surfaces so you can be confident that your railing installation will not at all compromise your waterproofing.

Durarail is manufactured in North America and is made to stand up to the elements with virtually no maintenance. If you’ve invested in low maintenance vinyl decking, why would you want to go back to wooden railings that are so labor-intensive? Durarail is made to last.

Another advantage of using a Duradek contractor to install your railings is that you have a single-source for your warranties. Should any issues ever arise with your deck, you only have one point of contact. This makes the resolution to any potential issues so much easier.

Welded Picket Railing Panels

The installation process goes quickly because the pre-measured, solid panels of varying lengths come to your job site pre-welded and ready to install.

Our welded picket railing panels are available in 9 standard colors or over 180 custom colors.
