Product Overview

A strong railing design begins with the post support - a key area in providing a safe and stable railing system. Our Aluminum End Post is firmly anchored to deck surfaces with a sturdy, attractive 4 x 4 base support. Unlike flat base plates, the die cast base of our end post provides a complete four-sided support to the 2 x 2 post and overall stability to your railing system. The Aluminum End Post is a fundamental part of the Peak Aluminum Railing - an attractive, durable and low-maintenance railing system. While other railings may warp, rot or decay, Peak Aluminum Railing stays strong for years thanks to its superior protection and lasting beauty.

Can these posts be installed on a concrete surface?

All directions shown appear to fasten posts to wooden surfaces,
Asked by: Tom
Hi Tom, Thank you for your question. Yes, the Peak Aluminum Railing system can be installed on a concrete surface. You would need to outsource the concrete fasteners and follow the manufacturers instructions and recommendations for installation. We recommend a Hilti Kiwk Bolt 3, 1/4" diameter x 3" embedment. Alternately, Tapcon concrete screw anchors may be used, 5/16" diameter x 3" embedment. Please feel free to give us a call toll free at (877) 883-7325 should you have any additional questions at all.

mounting on concrete follow-up

In answer to a question by Tom, June 17, 2016, "Can these posts be installed on a concrete surface?" you answered, "We recommend a Hilti Kwik Bolt 3, 1/4" diameter x 3" embedment. Alternately, Tapcon concrete screw anchors may be used, 5/16" diameter x 3" embedment." The Hilti's are available in zinc-plated carbon steel, which will rust, and stainless steel with a stainless steel nut which will gall and soon be inseparable. The flat head style (like the ones you supply for wood) seem to be hard to find in small quantities. The Tapcons are similarly hard to find, and they are blue. Would one of these 4 (all available at Home Depot) do: 1) Blue-Tap BT4T31WH050 (1/4 X 3-1/4 white trim-head), 2) Kwik-Tap 46325.0 (1/4 x 2-3/4 blue polymer coated flat head), 3)Tapcon 24390 (1/4 x 3-3/4 blue polymer coated flat head), 4) Tapcon 24397 (1/4 x 4 blue polymer coated flat head)?
Asked by: tjk
Hi there Tjkupp. We generally recommend the Tapcon brand, as this is the brand that many of our customers choose for concrete or brick installations. We would recommend a 3" Tapcon screw, at 1/4" width.

4 in. x 4-3/4 in. x 42 in. Black Aluminum End Post is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Put in 57' of Peak Railing. Used both glass and pickets . Installed on raised concrete patio. Looks great, quality product, very sturdy. Biggest problem was Home Depot. I needed to go to 5 different Stores to get all of the parts I need. I would lay out the entire job and special order delivered to store So you have all parts before you start installation. Follow their instructions and look at the install video on both Peak and Home Depot web sits and you will have no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Product I decided to install the Peak Aluminum railing for a couple of reasons. 1. In the Pacific Northwest it won’t rust or rot as fast as wood or metal. 2. This system is modular, so replacing individual pickets is easier than replacing an entire section of fixed railing. Components I used in the installation include the 4 foot rails, 6 foot rails, 6 foot stair rails, 6 foot stair pickets, 6 foot standard pickets, Stair Posts, End Posts, Corner Posts, Mid Posts, Wall Brackets, Stair Brackets, Universal Brackets, Walk Through Gate, and Decorative Spacers. Installation was fast and easy for the most part. I started at a corner, and worked my around the deck. On the runs that attached to a wall, I used a Mid or End Post to mark the location of the wall Mount Brackets. Where I had a short section, I placed it near the wall, or near a gate to give the gate a little more stability. I installed a couple of 6 foot rails on one run, and decided to redo it with 4 foot rails. Most of the runs were such that 4 foot rails were easier, and I replaced the 6 foot rails for uniformity. Stair Posts, End Posts, Mid Posts, and Corner Posts were easy to work with, and the feel secure when installed. Stairs are a little tricky and difficult. Installing a 3 foot section of stair railing takes as long as installing 30-40 feet of standard railing. The stair raining will take about an hour and a half each rail. There are no instructions giving you advice on how to measure or cut the railing. I used scrap pieces of Bottom Railing as spacers, and everything worked out with a 42 inch measurement from the stair to the top of the Stair Rail. It will take a bit to measure and cut the spacers for the stair railing. Don’t get frustrated if it takes a couple of times to get the first one right. After that the rest of the stair rails are easier. They will all take about an hour and a half. Follow the directions for the Walk Through Gate. I used scrap top rail pieces to rest the gate on when installing it, and that provided enough lift to get the top rail of the gate to match the top rail of the fence rail. I used the leftover trex to build a Garden Bridge to hide the Septic access covers, and added the Peak Railing to finish it off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I installed on concrete and used Tapcon+ 5/16". Had to be very precise with hole placement and made sure drill was plumb. Not much room for error with 5/16 Tapcon+'s but very strong installation. I've used 5/16" wooden dowels to make sure things stayed in place while drilling and screwing. Consult local building codes/engineer for proper fasteners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clean modern look. This deck railing system was very easy to work with and assemble. All of the aluminum pieces were protected with a clear film to prevent any marring or scratching during installation. The glass panels were packaged extremely well. We used both the 6" and 66" glass panels. The 6" came with a different style insert system which was slick as can be. The 66" panels push up into a top hard plastic gasket then into the bottom one which was a bit trickier to achieve but once we got the first one in and figured it out, the others went very well. We are project driven grandparents of 7 and installed 8 - 66" and 5 - 6" sections in one day. We have received many compliments on the final look.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product Great product, easy to install, but the company should anticipate concrete installment and provide screws made for concrete installation. Additionally, the company should anticipate for installation on a non-level surface. The porch has a slight angle, so I had to use shims for this, but it was very difficult to make this part work correctly. However, this looks so much better than the iron rails that used to be installed. Expensive too, but aluminum isn't cheap! Lastly, I think HD should carry white and black or brown. Not everyone wants white.
