Product Overview

A strong railing design begins with the post support - a key area in providing a safe and stable railing system. Our Aluminum Mid 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 Mid 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.

Are 45 degree posts available?

I see the posts come with a 90 degree corner, blank post for the railing, or a middle post with brackets on each side. My question is - my deck has 45 degree corners, how do I get the railing to angle that way?

Answer: 
No. You need to purchase "Universal Connector" sets that screw into the two end posts. These Universal Connectors pivot to accommodate any angle. I had one 45 degree angle on my installation and the universal connectors worked just fine. Just take your time measuring to ensure a good snug fit and connector height match to the end posts.

Answer: 
Hi there and thank you for your inquiry. The best way to achieve a 45 degree horizontal angle is to use stair posts and universal connectors. The connectors can be mounted on the stair posts so they swivel on either a vertical plane for stair applications, or a horizontal plane for angles other than 90 degrees. The model number for the universal connector in black is 50901. Please don’t hesitate to Read More

Answer: 
Hi Peter88, thanks for your question. We have never tested our railing and glass panels in this kind of application, so we can't comment on the performance. We would be cautious of mounting a glass panel directly against an aluminum post that might be subject to minor expansion/contraction with changing temperatures. Please give us a call toll free at 877-883-7325 if you have any additional questions Read More

Do the posts come with fasteners for rails and base? If so please provide specs for fasteners. If not, what fasteners are recommended?

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality These are good quality parts. Our installer said the midrails were pretty simple to put together. I was glad to find a 42" railing. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Do-it-yourself Aluminum Railing I used the Peak Aluminum on my deck rebuild (capped composite decking) for a virtually maintenence free deck. Very easy to work with. Top and bottom rails cut easily with a high TPI saw blade made for nonferrous metals. However, I would not recommend cutting the picket spacers using the same blade. The spacers are too short (3 7/8") and several times the scrap end was caught by the blade and went flying. Dangerous situation! When installing the posts, make sure that the supplied 3" lag bolts have something substantial in which to screw. In my installation, two of the lag bolts screwed into the outside joist/face board. For the other two screws, I nailed a 2 x 8 between the joists, horizontally. In my installation, I used a combination of 4', 6' and 8' railing sections. In reading the installation instructions, it states that the widest allowable railing sections are 6'. I called the company and found out the 8' railing sections were being discontinued, but I found enough at a local store to complete the job. I basically did 55 linear feet of railing for about $1300. Much less expensive than pre-assembled aluminum railing sections. September 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Choice As a contractor this product was easy to install, sturdy and nicely detailed. It is a good alternative to having a fabricator custom build the railing. A decent low budget solution. A bit more labor than pre-built panels but easy enough. One caution - don't lose any screws it doesn't come with any extras. Best to have it delivered to store to pick up at your convenience. Had to block out a two hour window and they showed up with a 40' semi for a 90 lb. package. The driver was very courteous, professional and made it within the two hour window. December 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Peak Aluminum Fencing I am always cautious of boxed construction materials. This Peak Fencing is a pleasant experience. All of the components were properly machined and the powder coating was perfect. No scratches and no damage. I recommend the following to make your project perfect. Have an accurate plan and stick to the plan. Don't cut any materials until a trial view has been completed. Don't get in a hurry and most of all apply old school knowhow, accurate measurements and newer saw blades. Have a flat file as well as a rat tail to remove any burrs. This Peak Fence will pay dividends in compliments, appearance and added safety. June 16, 2015
