Deckorators® is bringing the sleek, simplified look of stainless steel to outdoor living — in a durable aluminum deck railing. A leading brand of Universal Forest Products, Inc. (Nasdaq: UFPI), Deckorators has introduced its unique ALX Contemporary aluminum railing in Brushed Titanium at DeckExpo 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee.
Made of heavy-gauge aluminum, ALX Contemporary railing in Brushed Titanium features a beautiful anodized finish that offers the appearance of stainless steel while resisting scratches and corrosion. The product is available in two profiles: rectangle top rail with Deckorators Estate balusters and round top rail with Classic balusters. It comes in 36- and 42-inch heights and 6- and 8-foot pre-assembled sections for easy installation.
Like other railings in the Deckorators ALX family, the new product is backed by a lifetime limited warranty on manufacturing defects and powder coating and a 25-year removal-and-replacement warranty.
“Deck railing is what really gives homeowners the opportunity to differentiate an outdoor space,” said Chris Camfferman, director of category marketing for Deckorators. “Stainless steel is a popular design element for residential and commercial interiors. We’re excited to offer our dealer and contractor partners a deck railing style that’s on-trend and unlike anything on the decking market today.”
ALX Contemporary in Brushed Titanium joins the complete line of Deckorators railings including ALX aluminum, CXT composite, cable rail and ADA-compliant secondary handrail. The new product will be available for the 2018 decking season.
Deckorators introduced two more railing systems at DeckExpo:
Deckorators SLX InvisirailTM
New Deckorators SLX Invisirail is a premium glass railing system that makes scenic views crystal clear. Featuring tempered glass panels and minimal stainless steel posts, SLX Invisirail eliminates most sight-line obstructions — making the system perfect for decks overlooking water, mountains and other beautiful vistas.
SLX Invisirail will be available for the 2018 decking season in a 42-inch height with 17 glass panel sizes to fit project needs. The product’s pre-routed panels allow for easy installation to posts. Custom designs and an optional stainless steel graspable top rail are also available. SLX Invisirail is backed by a 25-year limited warranty on manufacturing defects.
ALX Classic Pre-Assembled Rail
Deckorators ALX Classic aluminum railing is being made available in 6- and 8-foot pre-assembled sections to save contractors time on baluster installation. The durable, yet minimal pre-assembled railing will be available for the 2018 decking season in matte black or textured white finish, with Classic or Estate balusters.
ALX Classic is covered by a lifetime limited warranty on manufacturing defects and powder coating and a 25-year removal-and-replacement warranty.
