Hi Scotty. 2018 International Building Code and 2017 and Florida Building Code 6th Edition. Feel free to direct project specific questions to support@ezhandrail.com Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

Do you make this kit in a 10 foot kit.

Asked by Edward May 3, 2020
1
Answer

Hi Edward. No, unfortunately 8 ft. is the maximum railing length for ground (less than 30" height) installations. Please note only the 6' ft kits are recommended for installations above 30" off the ground. Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

What is the exact measurement of the glass balusters for the 42” system?

Asked by PamC March 28, 2020
1
Answer

Hi Pam. The glass balusters are 8"w x 35"h x 1/4" thick. Clear tempered safety glass with polished edges. Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

What it the middle support post mounted to? Is there a plate that screws into the deck?

Asked by PamC March 28, 2020
1
Answer

Hi Pam. The mid support simply rests on your deck boards. It's only function is to act as a "stomp block" if there is a massive downward force. The railing system itself exceeds all IBC load requirements (safety factor 4) on its own. The support is beneficial when kids, grand kids (some adults) jump on the bottom rail. Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

Is there a door with the glass? Or is the only option to have the door with the bars?

Asked by Gs3 February 8, 2020
1
Answer

Hi Gs3. (this answer refers to screen enclosure doors) We do not offer doors with glass due to shipping constraints. However, most any Home Depot stocked storm door will work with our system. The storm doors will have removable or sliding glass panels and screen as well. Make sure to order enough 2x2's to frame the door: two verticals from floor to ceiling and one horizontal header, and capri clips. (this answer refers to glass gates) As I was typing this in right now, I realized you may be asking about a glass gate. Similar answer: we do not offer glass gates due to safety and shipping constraints. I highly recommend the aluminum baluster gate (EZGCHB). The rails and finish match perfectly. If you have any specific questions please email me at support@ezhandrail.com. Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

Asked by Dennis May 27, 2018

Answers

Hi Dennis. Yes, this EZ Post will work with this 42" glass kit. However, I recommend the 3 in. x 3 in. x 3-2/3 ft. Textured Black Aluminum Post with Welded Base item# 203546991 (model# EZPCHB-W) which is our newer generation post with a welded base plate versus the separate mounting base included in our original kits. If you have placed your order, simply email support@ezhandrail.com and we can make the substitution for you prior to shipment. Thank you for your question. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

Do you offer a product for the stairs. Angle staircase and glass panels

Asked by Danny May 8, 2018
1
Answer

Hi Danny. We offer a full glass panel stair solution. Be aware, it is a four week lead time and requires precise measurements. I only recommend this solution for advanced DIY homeowners and contractors. Pricing is higher than the level runs but not unreasonable. If you would like a quote for your project simply email support@ezhandrail.com with your rough dimensions and preferred Home Depot location. Thank you for your consideration. Dan H. (EZ Handrail Dev. Team)

This EZ Handrail, 6 ft. x 42 in. Aluminum Textured Black 8 in. Glass Baluster Rail Kit was well packaged in heavy cardboard boxes. One box has the glass panels and the other has the rails and all the hardware. I did not find the installation guide in the boxes but it was easy to get it from the home depot web site or the EZ Handrail web site. The instructions are a bit complicated but they are well written and if you follow each step they work well. The only challenge I had was mounting the two wood posts to the deck but I was able to tightly mount it to the frame using carriage bolts. The company offers a textured black aluminum post at a reasonable price and I may switch my wood posts to the aluminum posts to give it a nicer finished look. The company web site "www.hdezhandrail.com" is a great resource to begin the design of your railing system. The black powder coat finish looks great especially against the glass panels. I am sure the powder coated finish will look great for many years and not require any maintenance. Everyone who has seen the railing loves the high end look and the strong quality feel. You really get what you pay for in this railing system.

This is a well built, quality deck rail, and truly is simple to install. I was able to install it by my self in approx 2 hours for a 6' section, but were I to do another, it would go faster now that the learning curve is over. Careful with the instructions, as they are in order, but not stapled together so its easy to mix them up if you are not paying attention. Also, it says to leave 28" space in between the tracks, but I found this to be quite tight. In fact I had to pull up on the top rail to get the glass into the slots. I would add 1/8" were I to do it again. Also, put all the glass panels in before you space them out evenly - it will save you some grief in getting them to slide in. Other than the issues mentioned, I found the rail to be solidly built, even when attached to wood posts like I did. The rubber seals create the strength, and are extremely snug fit, which makes the whole thing strong. The glass panels are tempered, which makes them strong and safe at the same time. I would highly recommend this rail system for any deck, as it looks nice, is strong, lets light in, and adds to the beauty of your project.

This rail does not work at all going down a series of steps. Every spindle must be cut and when the screws go in they sometimes strip the groove. Very frustrating.

A caveat here on this item. It is expensive. A six foot section is $375 so if you have a 20x12 deck that's over $4k. Unlike the metal balusters, trying to divide the glass panels to fit a section is pretty difficult. Additionally, if you do split the section, It's about $55 for the extra post mounts to use both cut sections. However it is beautiful and I would recommend it as an accent area, not an entire deck unless you have a very generous budget. To put these glass panels in the rails takes two people, as least in my experience. If you already have posts set up, it takes about 3 hours to put this one rail in. That includes measuring, cutting, spacing, leveling and assembly.

Looks absolutely wonderful. The picture shows the glass as greyish or tined but mine was clear. I actually prefer it clear. Railing seems very sturdy. Product arrived well packaged without any defects. The glass is slightly flexible, which may turn out to be a good thing. I highly recommend this baluster rail kit for a 6ft space to make a room elegant and classy.
