Great product
Great product, easy to install. I installed this on concrete and used 3 1/4" tapcon masonry/concrete screws and the post are very secure. Note that not all Home Depot carry this product.

great design and ordering system, nice results
I found this competitive railing option on homedepot.com. It links to the peak site. From there, I was easily able to build my layout and choose between a few options. The build creates an order list and approximate cost for all materials when ordered on homedepot.com. Since i wanted a black animal fence grid look in this system, I built my design with full glass panels and purchased the glass gaskets with my order, but not the glass. I then sourced a galvanized 4” x 4” utility grid and cut to size so it fit inside the glass gaskets once the railing was installed. I get a lot of positive compliments from the neighbors on the looks of it. I had a very positive experience with this sytem and the planning tools, plus it was very competitive in cost. I would recommend a saw blade made to cut aluminum if you have a medium to large job to get the fast, quality cuts needed. I am glad I purchased the blade for my miter saw to make the cutting quick and get professional results. HIGHLY recommended.

Need quality control.
Most parts had a decent finish on them. The stair picket and spacer kit I had was not good. Pickets had rough corners to them. The spacers were poorly cut and had marks on every one of them from the cutting process. The posts and top rails were beautifully finished. The lower rail had a really bad flaw that people should be aware of before they install them. I always leave the protective peel off plastic on metal parts until after installation. Do NOT do this with this product. When I removed the plastic from the lower rails it left what looked like sticker residue on the rail that would not come off and is part of the finish. Not sure if the plastic had a reaction with the paint or if they put it on too soon after coating the bottom rail but it looks awful and will need to be repainted. It would be better to peel off the protective plastic first and just take the risk of scratching it during installation over having a screwed up finish on a rail that is already installed. I attached a picture with some white paper behind it to show it. Everything else has a nice satin finish to it and the bottom rail has a sparatic dull finish following the ripples of the peel off plastic. Goo Gone and paint thinner will not make any difference at all.

Hello, thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. We would like to replace the Hand & Base rail kit that you have that clearly shows the defect that the protective plastic left. This normally doesn't happen unless the plastic has been left on for long periods of time. Please give us a call at 877-883-7325 at your convenience so we can make the arrangements. Thank you.

    Arrived all banged up and bent. Looks like it left the factory looking like this. Not at all what I expected or worth the money. Plus the one of the handrails arrived in black (doubled checked and everything I ordered was in white)

      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).

        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.

        Excellent value and quality for the money
        This railing is very easy to install and looks great. It takes less than 20 minutes to build one section with glass. I am very happy with the product. They are also packed very well so there was no damage at all to any of the glass, rails or posts that I bought. I did my entire deck (700 sq feet) for just under $4,000. I got two estimated from contractors and both were over $10,000.

          I used the design system at peakproducts.com and received a complete material list. This was very helpful!!! My wife and I installed this product in a reasonable amount of time. We are far from professional installers. The project finished very nicely and railing system looks and feels fantastic. We are very impressed with the quality of the railing system and the simplicity of installation. If you are looking for a quality deck rail system, with good support and installation instructions, this is the product you are looking for! Thanks Peak Products!!!!

          Replace balcony railing with Peak
          Had a balcony view that felt like jail whenever sitting down and trying to look through thick builder installed railing. Didn't know this system existed until I found on HD .com. Ordered it and installed about 22 ft. in a weekend. I'm pretty good with DIY projects and this system was fairly simple. It is sturdier than the railing that was up there. Only issue I had was installing system between two walls. The last piece gets a little tricky. Thats the only reason I give it less than 5 star. Highly recommend to anyone who wants a better view.

            The product itself is nice but .....the installation method and instructions are awful! The video isn't much better and isn't totally consistent with written instructions. Detail for the trickiest steps is not included in either the video or written instructions. Since pieces are falling all over the place during assembly touch-up paint should be included. Picket gaskets fell out when unpacking. I didn't know if they were a packing material or served a function. There is no reference to picket gaskets in instructions. I utilized manufacturer website chat to ask what the plastic piece is for and was told it's a picket gasket that gets removed if using glass panels. I was never given an explanation as to what a picket gasket is for.

              I am very pleased with the quality and appearance of the Peak rail system. I’ve had it installed for about a month now. The installation is very exacting and the Peak install instructions must be followed EXACTLY, especially when installing the stair railing! Unfortunately for me, I had to install the handrail between the existing deck posts, so I had to assembly the rail section completely, before setting it between the posts. There are no instructions for this scenario, so through trial and error, I found that I could use two ratchet straps to get the spindles to snap into the top and bottom rail sections, before installation. Getting the all the spindles at once to snap into the railing is extremely difficult to do, I ruined a $70 section of railing by using a rubber hammer in an attempt to get them to snap in, so don’t make that costly mistake! Also it’s very difficult to determine when the spindles have fully snapped in, but I found that if you have a 35.75” measurement between the bottom of the top rail, and the top of the bottom rail, then your spindles are completely bottomed and fully snapped in. If the instructions would have deluged this critical measurement, I wouldn’t have ruined that $70.00 section of railing.
