Accurailing Aluminum Railings

2.  What type of Post Mountings are available?

Both our larger and smaller aluminum posts can be configured to attach to the deck either on the top surface or on the fascia (the side of the deck).

3.  What does maintenance-free railings mean?

Accurailing’s railings are made of aluminum (will not rust) and the exposed surfaces are finished with a powder-coat finish.  Wooden railings, even when painted or stained, are likely to rot, decay, peel or fade, and are prone to a build up of mold and mildew.

Accurailings aluminum railings virtually eliminate maintenance problems associated with old wooden railings.  No painting, no repainting, no rust, no priming, no staining, no recoats….we could go on.  If you’ve ever spent the time required (every year!) to maintain a wooden railing, you will truly appreciate being able to devote your time to something more pleasing to you.

4.  What is “Powder Coating” and why use it?

Powder Coating is one of the most durable exterior finishes available today.  It is used on many metal items that are exposed to the weather because, as a finish, it is the best way to insure durability, weather resistance, and color retention.  A powder coat finish is part paint and part polyester sealer/resin.  The finish is applied as a powder, electro statically, and while held to the metal this way, is baked in an oven.  It is baked at a hot enough temperature so, in effect, the outside layer of the metal fuses with the melted powder forming a hard, weather-resistant finish.
