Wide Range of Styles
Our aluminum railing systems come in a variety of styles and colours. We offer narrow and wide pickets, double top rail, framed and topless glass railings in both deck and fascia mount applications, as well as seamless frameless glass. If you are looking for privacy or wind walls, they are available too.
Construction of a new deck, do I need guards/railings?
The Ontario Building Code requires the installation guards/railings when then deck is 24″ (60 cm) above grade.
The minimum height of the railing varies based on the height of the deck. Decks 24″ to 5-10″ (180 cm) need 36″ guards and anything above 5-10″ requires a 42″ high railing.
How much space should be between deck balusters?
Balusters, the vertical guards that support the handrail, must be installed close enough that the space between them is no greater than 4 inches. Most city inspectors carry a 4-inch ball with them to test the spacing. Installed balusters should withstand 50 lbs. of pressure exerted over a 1-square-foot area
