You know you have more options for your deck railing than just a traditional wood perimeter — but where to start? One great place is with high-style, low-maintenance composite railing.
What Is Composite Railing?
Composite railing refers to a railing system made from an innovative blend of high-performance polymers and recycled wood fibers.
Why Choose Composite Railing?
Durability, Beauty, & Low-Maintenance Living
With composite railing, you lock in enduring beauty and nix the maintenance and upkeep requirements of traditional wood perimeters.
Thanks to its more durable construction, this railing beats wood as the more convenient — and higher-performance — railing option.
You also invest in not only your home, but the planet by choosing this sustainable railing option.
Learn the Different Components of a Railing System
Before you dive into more details about composite railing, it’s important to first understand the components that make up a railing system. With this know-how, you won’t skip a beat when it comes time to customize your own railing.
What Makes Up Your Railing
Did you know a railing actually has more than one “rail”? These are the main pieces of a railing system.
The top rail is the uppermost piece of rail that connects to the top of the infill.
The bottom rail is the piece that runs along bottom beneath the infill.
The infill is what fits between the top and bottom rail, filling the inside of the rail. It can be made of glass, composite or metal balusters, or CableRail.
The skirt is a covering that surrounds the bottom of the post.
The post is a vertical piece that sits in between the infill and connects the top and bottom rails.
The cap is the piece that sits on top of the post. It can sometimes include lighting.
