Railing

An Aluminum Railing With Awesome Strength and Beautiful, Clean Design.

Description

Attractive Outdoor Railing

But strength isn’t our only feature. The beauty of Craft-Bilt Structural Railing is in it’s clean lines. There are no protruding splicers or couplings, everything is flush and smooth. The modern, substantive appearance will add value and “curb appeal” to your property.

Craft-Bilt Maintenance Free Aluminum Railing eliminates the hassle of painting or staining. Never again worry about orange, rusting wrought iron or that rotting, loose wood. (A splinter from pressure treated wood is a good source of vitamin arsenic). Worried about expansion, contraction, fading or cracking associated with plastic (pvc) and pvc composite products? You should be.

Aluminum is used in commercial buildings, aircraft, aerospace and many other critical applications for it’s strength, exact tolerance and maintenance-free properties. This is not the aluminum railing you see at your lumber store. Craft-Bilt Structural Railing is designed to meet the national and provincial building codes.

Craft-Bilt’s post caps, wall brackets and unique post bracket covers are made from CNC machined or die-cast aluminum… not plastic. Look closely… all the screws are hidden from view!

Halogen Lighting Option for Railing Posts

The Craft-Bilt halogen light is 3 watts. To maintain warranty we recommend using our 12V transformer. It has a unique threaded body with fixing nut that allows it to be installed in thin-wall material, such as our aluminum posts. High quality halogen technology and stainless bezel means your lights will stand the test of time.

  • Colour matched powder coat finish
  • Polycarbonate lens, impact resistant

Lighting Your Deck or Porch


Privacy Panel / Balcony Divider / Pool Fencing

Craft-Bilt’s aluminum railing system can be used to enclose outdoor restaurant seating, as a privacy panel, a balcony divider or to make your pool safe for children. The system can be manufactured to any height you need, typically five or six feet, and it can be installed on concrete or a wood deck.

Privacy panels are made with 5mm or 6mm thick tempered glass or ⅝” thick multi-wall polycarbonate sheets. Tempered glass is typically ordered in “frosted”, also known as “pinhole”, which obscures the view. Polycarbonate sheets are available in clear, opal ice or bronze colour. Opal ice, which has a milky white appearance, is the best choice for privacy.

End Posts are located at ends, corners, top of stairs and bottom of stairs.
Cross Over / Line Posts are between the End Posts. A Cross-Over Post is made to fit underneath a continuous handrail while a Line Post has a post cap, it interrupts the handrail.

Heights and post spacing mentioned in this calculator are for typical residential use on balconies or decks up to three floors. For other uses please contact Craft-Bilt.
