Adding the finishing touches to your decking, stairways and entrance areas around your home can be accomplished by installing fortress railing. This type of railing includes different options to help you obtain the style of railing you prefer. It comes available in six foot and eight foot welded panels, which can be supplemented with support posts and top railing covers to match your decking.
Fortress railing is made from pre-galvanized, zinc phosphate, and includes DuPont® e-coat and DuPont® powder-coated iron finishes. Because of the finishing processes used on this type of railing, it provides some of the strongest iron railing available on the market today. Your new railing even includes a 15 year manufacturer’s warranty. Color choices include gloss black, antique bronze and a rustic brown designed to resist fading and stand up to the elements.
You have several options available for customizing and creating your own unique and beautifully finished deck, when using this style of railing, which is easy to install. For example, you could use plain iron panels with a circle top along the border of your Ipe decking. If you also have stairways leading to or from your deck, you should also include stair panels that are already angled and which pose no problems being attached to the sides of your stairs. Additional options include adding decorative railing caps to put your own final touches on your railings and are available in circles, scrolls, and rails patterns. These pieces are designed to be attached and integrate seamlessly to the top your railing sections.
