Answer

Hello SanjayGupta and thank you for your question. The 6 ft. Hand and Base Rail does not include brackets to install on a 4X4 post. You can use our Wall Brackets (50920 / 50921) to attach these rails directly to a 4X4 post. Please feel free to reach our customer service at 1-877-883-7325 if you have further questions.

can the height of this railing be customized ?

Asked by mike March 13, 2021
5
Answers

Hi Mike, thanks for your question. We don't recommend adjusting the height of the railing mostly because a 42" rail is required to meet building code in most places. Further, modifying every component is a significant amount of work that must all be precise and exact for the system to connect together securely. Please feel free to give us a call at 877-883-7325 to discuss in more detail. Thank you.

Beautiful looking railing. I love that it doesn’t rust, although some of the self tapping screws have rusted after 15 years. But overall this is a great maintenance free railing (except for cleaning of course).

My project involved installing two gates in opposite sides of about 100 ft of Peak Aluminum Railing placed a retaining wall. Although the hardware included with the posts would have been very appropriate for mounting on a wooden deck, since I was installing on stone I used Tapcons instead. Made for a very sturdy mounting. Fence panel assembly was pretty straight forward. I had to cut a number of pieces to fit angles. The project would have been a real work out if I used a hacksaw as shown in the instructions. I recommend using a power miter saw with suitable blade instead. The instructions offered on the gate packaging are pretty weak. However the gate itself was well constructed and installed without any real problem. One consideration, the post to which the gate will be mounted won't have any dimples indicating where you will need to drill pilot holes for the hinge bolts. I used a 48" level placed on edge to support the gate while locating the hinges. A 2x4 ripped to height ensuring the upper edge of the gate is level with the railing panels might have been better. After marking where the holes needed to be drilled I used a center punch to keep the drill from walking on the powder coating. Attaching the latch to the gate was easier, since drill points are already dimpled.
