These are good quality parts. Our installer said the midrails were pretty simple to put together. I was glad to find a 42" 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.

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.

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.
