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.

Hello, and thank you very much for your detailed review, we appreciate your support! We have shared your suggestions with our product development team. Thank you!
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.

Hi Jeff13, thank you so much for your comments, we really appreciate your support!
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!!!!
