Metal deck railing materials

There are various materials used for metal railing fabrication: mild structural steel, stainless steel, aluminum. Mild structural steel products, like HSSs, bars, perforated plates are Structural Beam’s choice, and there are good reasons for this:

  • Steel deck railings are stronger than aluminum railings
  • Steel deck railings, properly protected by powder coating, are way more corrosion-resistant than wrought iron ones
  • Steel deck railings are powder-coated in colors of your choosing and blend well with the overall style of your deck and its surroundings
  • Structural steel deck railing requires virtually zero maintenance and retains its structural integrity for a very long time
  • Metal railings with picket infills are super-safe for kids and pets
  • Perforated plate infill allows for extra privacy
  • Stainless steel cable rails are slick-looking, this type of railing system consists of top rail and cables running through the holes in the poles. Alas, not great for kids’ and animals’ safety. Cable railing is harder to maintain, as well

Prefab or custom? The choice is obvious

When planning for a metal deck railing, there are two options available. You can either go with prefab railings, available in the market or go for the custom-made ones. Let’s take a look and see what are the advantages and drawbacks.

Prefab factory-made metal deck railing

Readily available, factory-made railings come in different styles and price ranges. There are, of course, limitations:

  • Only a limited number of rail styles are available
  • Specs of the raw materials prefab railing were fabricated from are predetermined, often pre-fabs are a tad flimsy
  • Types of mounting may not fit well with your architect’s ideas
