Questions & Answers

Can this be use with 10mm tempered glass.

Can this be use with 10mm tempered glass.
Asked by: Darnell
There are tempered glass and rubber inserts sold specifically for this brand of railing. They come on 2 different widths. The hard plastic inserts that come with this railing are designed for the aluminum railing pickets. They provide no shock isolation or vibration isolation from wind.

Like other brand railing systems, do the hand and base rails come with the picket vinyl insert to reduce or eliminate the rattling noise that the pickets can produce? Or do you sell those separately? The base rail image shown in the Home Depot website seems to show a vinyl already inserted. How about the hand rail?
Asked by: Keen
Hi Keen, Thank you for your question. Yes, the gasket insert that prevents the pickets from rattling comes with the hand & base rails and is pre-installed in both the hand and the base rail.

6 ft. Aluminum Hand and Base Rail in Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 40.

Put it into concrete with lag's and had to cut to fit on small side porch. 5 posts, 3 railing runs and stair rail took around 8 hours (stair railing took the most time and see stair rail review for why it took so long). It looks really good and is solid. My only tip that the instructions don't mention well, and the videos don't show, is the base rail comes with a plastic strip that locks the balusters in place . Be careful when you cut the railing that the drain holes still line up. If you have to make more than a couple cuts, I would recommend using a miter saw with metal blade for aluminum. A hacksaw will work, but it is good thick aluminum so it will take some work.

I would do it all over again because you have so many more choices than wood. I've had a lot of people come by, and look at them, and everyone wanted to go with the aluminum rails. I've been in construction for quite awhile. I know quality materials, and I seen this as soon as I started to unpack it. Its a list of instructions in ever box you get. That part I like you don't have to worry about someone misplace or getting lost. I do like the Peak railing system better because they have more choices, and shipping was free, and got here a head of time. I've had very good results dealing with Home Depot, and thanks a lot.

I bought several sections and there were no missing pieces. I am using this on a floating party barge and I needed something that is strong enough, easy to clean, and unlikely to have chips in the paint. I have four sections, one at each corner of the barge that are six feet and three feet connected at right angles. To make the 3 footer, I just sawed the 6 foot section in half and it worked perfectly.

I installed the railing inside at the top of a stairway. I used lag bolts to hold the posts to the floor. Real sturdy. I plan on making a gate for the top of the stairs out of this material so I ordered to more posts. The only negative is, as far as I am concerned, there is no way to cut this rail easily using a regular hack saw. A chop saw with the proper blade is much better.

Every time I put in the last style for the railings, they all fell out and I'd have to start over with the spacers from top to bottom, or bottom to top. It was the worse project in years. The railing however, is sturdy and looks good, but I would never use this product again. Way too much time to put in. AWFUL to put together.

Note that you can order in glass panels in 3 in interments starting at 18". This really made the project. One caution do not special order the glass that is stocked in the store, they charged 25% more when I included them in the package.
