Can TimberTech railing and decking products be curved or bent?

TimberTech railing and decking products can be curved or bent using heat and force to create custom shapes. Because curving/bending is performed by customers on their own or by third-party fabricators, TimberTech cannot guarantee the integrity or performance of such applications, including the potential effect to the products’ structural rigidity, aesthetics or other product attributes. Any problems to the decking or railing products resulting from curving/bending are expressly excluded under TimberTech’s Limited Warranty. TimberTech recommends that all designs be reviewed by a licensed architect, engineer or local building official before installation.

How do you install TimberTech railings on concrete?

TimberTech Secure Mount Post is a great option for the installation of TimberTech railing on a concrete surface and is adjustable to accommodate both 36” and 42” high rail installations. The Secure Mount Post can be installed directly on composite decks or concrete surfaces, and no treated 4x4 post is needed. Mounting hardware for deck installation is sold separately. Mounting hardware for concrete applications can be sourced locally.

Check out the Secure Mount Post Installation Guide and the Railing Installation Guides for instructions, and always consult local building codes prior to installation.
