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.

Asked by Mike March 1, 2021

Answer

Hi Mike, thanks for your question. Due to building code requirements, the longest rail that is available is 6'. Thank you.

excellent railing product
Great quality. Tech support is easily reached and American. I put my railing onto a concrete patio with Tapcons. Worked out very well. Here’s a hint. Let the spacers determine your railing length (or post position). Otherwise, you have to cut multiple spacers to make it look even. I built one length of railing and then made all the other lengths so that i wouldnt have to cut spacers. Much faster

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).
