Customer Questions & Answers

Can it be cut down? My deck needs 7 ft. sections instead of 8 ft.

I will need to cut this to 94 inches. What over the counter saw would you recommend I pick up or blade to attach to my circular saw?

Asked by: Clay
we cut all the material with a dewalt portable band saw. You could us a blade for non ferrous material but be careful. A hacksaw would be better if you only have a few cuts.

8 ft. x 36 in. Textured Black Aluminum Baluster Railing Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.

It is attractive and sturdy in appearance. Since it is aluminum it is easily cut to size and easy to assemble for the most part. Various fasteners are provided for use depending on your decks material. If you plan on using the provided fasteners into a framework of copper treated treated wood you are advised to use stainless fasteners which are not provided. The instructions are better than most and adequate for side railing but lacking when it discusses use for steps. An example of this would be for use with the swivel stair fasteners. If your stairs are a length that would leave a wider gap between the balusters at the ends of the rail than exists between the rest of balusters the bottom swivel fastener can be turned over allowing the cut out in it to fit another baluster to even out the space at the ends. The only mention in the instructions says that the fastener can be reversed but it does not say why it would be done. The stair rail section needs more information in the directions. Read the instructions carefully and you will have a good finished product of you are a do it your selfer. This is a great rail system, I recommend it. Looks great and has a good finish available in more than black. You get what you pay for with this rail system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EZ Handrail Review I needed a handrail for my new craftsman two story. It needed to span 6 1/2 feet and tie into a stone column and the house itself. The columns are white and stone. I ordered the black so that it would blend in. It was installed in less than 2 hours and looks great! It looks like iron from a distance but with all the benefits of aluminum. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Do not use this product for stairs railing! I bought this for a hand railing on steps from our deck. These are not rackable - you must cut each rail for the stairs angle. This was difficult - and took several tries before I got it exactly right! If they were rackable (able to be angled in place) it would have been so much easier! While these may be useful for straight railings, they are a pain for angled installations.

This project is a little more challenging when using this railing as stair rail. If you take your time, I assure you it will come out beautiful. Instructions were straight forward, but took a little skill at cutting each spindle and putting it together. Overall, we love the completed look. We plan on buying more railing to put around our new porch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Product That Can Work in a 97.5" Opening I almost did not buy this item since I had a 96.5" opening between an existing post and the house wall and the response to my question in the Q&A section was that it would not work. After due consideration I doubted the response due to the size of the end brackets. I saw no necessity to buy two 6' sections plus a post to fill the opening at over twice the cost. I am glad I did because it works great. The mounting end caps are each 1.25" deep so the railing kit can be used in up to a 97.5" opening if you are willing to secure the top rail with sheet metal screws through the bottom of the top bracket as I did. The finally installed unit is excellent if quality and appearance and the abundant hardware supplied would meet the needs of almost any installation . A few notes for other DIY'rs from my installation experience. First, I used an impact driver to attach the 20 balusters to the rails with 4 screws/baluster. Be sure you have a really good 1/4 impact socket before you start. Second, There was a a slight difference between the spacing from the two ends of the rails to the mounting holes for the first baluster. It was about 1/4" in my case and, of course, I did not notice it until the assembly of the rails/balusters was completed. Since I was installing in a 96.5" opening it was actually a good thing as the top rail was tight on one end and the bottom rail was tight on the other with the balusters square to the rails. Had I been installing in an 8' opening it would have been necessary to trim one of the rails to make it fit. Finally, The center support leg did not assemble flush and was slightly longer than the 2X4 support block I used so I trimmed the foot length to be flush and match. My radial arm saw did this easily. Overall, I am very pleased with the railing kit and the installation was straightforward and relatively easy. The installed rail is both attractive and sturdy. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend.

Shipping was fast and the product arrived in perfect condition. I would recommend to the company to include directions on installing into masonry/brick as part of their standard instructions just like they do for wood and concrete since it requires different hardware. THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS UNPARALLELED!! I called with questions (3 different times) on installation into brick and was immediately forwarded to Dan who spent as much time as I needed explaining exactly what I needed to do. Installed, it is a solid rail and looks fantastic. EZ Handrail makes it a very doable DIY project.
