A deck railing is like a picture frame on a great work of art. While there are several factors to consider when installing deck railing — from durability to aesthetics to cost — one of the major elements for the DIY-minded is installation ease. Thanks to our Impression Rail Express® and its panelized baluster system, you can achieve a sleek and contemporary perimeter to highlight your composite decking — all with fuss-free installation.
Below, we take a closer look at Impression Rail Express and how it delivers ease, beauty, durability, and more.
Impression Rail Express is a streamlined, aluminum panelized system with completely hidden fasteners. The attractive aluminum railing system boasts panelized, pre-assembled balusters designed to keep sightlines clear and installation time short.
So, what does that mean for you? Well, first and foremost, the panelized system makes it way easier when installing deck railing. Traditional railing systems require you to fasten each individual baluster into the top rail and bottom rail. With Impression Rail Express, the balusters cohere together in a panel that can be installed as one piece using the pre-drilled holes in the top and bottom rails.
The Impression Rail Express panelized system makes installation both fast and easy. This contributes to lowered expense, as you save on installation time and on material needed to complete the final product — all at a competitive price point within the aluminum railing market.
Within our panelized system, additional design innovation keeps your railing system flawless. Check out some of the technology that defines Impression Rail Express and how it benefits you, the homeowner:
