Customer Questions & Answers

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 21.

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.

The directions are well written, the product came well packaged and I haven't seen any damage yet. The railings go together well, the matching posts (with the welded base) are rugged, and all in all it's a great system.

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 Excellent quality, sturdy, attractive appearance - just minor quibbles I cut and assembled this railing unit this week for placement between the corner of the house and a column on the deck outside our kitchen, where the drop-off was enough to require a railing for code and safety. When assembled, the railing is remarkably sturdy as you would want, in comparison to a cheap prefab, riveted railing at a local builder's supply. As directed by the instructions, I cut the length as needed using a 60 tooth (carbide) wood saw blade in my chop saw. I was skeptical about using a wood blade and not a metal once, but it cut the aluminum easily for a clean finish that did not require any filing to clean up the cut. Be aware: you'll get aluminum flakes flying through the air, so do this where it will be easy to clean up after yourself with a shop-vac. Each vertical is attached with two metal screws on each end, creating a very secure and tight connection. After all are attached, the top rail snaps on, covering the screws. After mounting to your posts or walls, do not omit the final step of drilling holes through the four brackets and attaching the self-tapping metal screws. This step firmly secures the railing to the brackets, eliminating any movement or rattle... giving the final installation a really solid feel. My only quibble is that everything was black except for the screws provided for attachment to wood posts... which were shiny metal and make the entire installation look cheesy. I'll be painting those 8 screw heads black soon. Also, the instructions don't specify - at the step where you need it - what size drill bit to use for the various post-attachment screws, or for the metal screws that secure the rail into the bracket. Finally, certain illustrations in the instructions could have had zoomed-in details... rather than vaguely pointing to the entire assembly. Not stated in the product description is that the finish is glossy. (The 'textured' in the product name refers to the dimpled appearance of the top rail.) That was my wife's only disappointment - we had hoped for a satin finish. Packaging was very good and showed no damage... but after unpacking all of the pickets, one was mashed in at the end... clearly damage coming directly from the factory. After trimming, I had two pickets left over, so the damaged one did not affect my installation. Had I needed the full 8' length, I would have had to contact the factory for a replacement. Recommended. In fact, I'm about to order another unit for our front deck.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EZ Handrail I was impressed with how well the item was packaged for shipping which resulted in absolutely no damage to the product. Item is of excellent quality, easy to assemble (good instructions and everything fit!), sturdy and looks great. I would not hesitate to recommend to, it's made by a USA company!
