Durable, Attractive, Reliable, Secure. These are only a few words used to describe Century Aluminum railing products.
When compared to wood, steel, or wrought iron, aluminum stacks up as one of the best railing materials for patios, decks, and outdoor spaces.
7 Benefits of Aluminum Railings
1. Strong & Lightweight
Aluminum railing systems are strong and lightweight. Aluminum has an impressive strength-to-weight ratio of 99, which makes it 57% stronger than stainless steel with a strength-to-weight ratio of 63. Compared to wood railing systems, aluminum railings are up to 40 times stronger, offering security and performance that will go beyond your expectations.
2. Easy to Install
Due to aluminum’s low weight, it’s an easy material to transport, handle, and install compared to heavier materials like steel or wrought iron.
When it comes to tools, the installation of aluminum railings requires only the basics: a tape measure, screwdrivers, a wrench, a drill, and a rubber mallet. Aluminum can often be cut on-site without the need for specialized equipment, further streamlining the installation process.
Aluminum railings are also splinter-free, ensuring safety and comfort during and after your installation.
When it comes to longevity and resilience, aluminum stands out as a long-lasting choice. Its durability is evident in its ability to:
- Easily withstand harsh weather conditions
- Resist the damaging effects of UV rays
- Remain highly resistant to corrosion
- Maintain structural integrity in the face of temperature fluctuations
- Remain moisture and corrosion resistant, even in high humidity
Since aluminum does not absorb moisture, the product will not rust, shrink, or crack, ensuring your railing remains in optimal condition without the risk of rot or warping. Choose aluminum for a durable, reliable, and low-maintenance solution.
4. Low Maintenance
Aluminum deck railing kits are virtually maintenance free. You can clean aluminum balusters and railings with a quick hose down or using a mild soap, warm water, and a cloth.
Unlike wooden railings which require regular painting and refinishing, Most aluminum railings are powder coated through a multi-stage treatment process that keeps them looking great for years to come.
5. Aluminum Railings Look Beautiful
Aluminum railings go beyond just functionality; they add an element of beauty to your property. For a classic aesthetic, choose aluminum picket railings which look great on any property. For a more modern aesthetic, go with aluminum & glass railings to maximize your view and create a wind barrier on your deck. With a variety of colors, styles, and finishes available, you have the freedom to customize your railings to match your specific design preferences.
6. Cost Effective
While they offer all the advantages of more expensive materials, such as wrought iron or steel, they come at a more affordable price point. This cost-effectiveness extends beyond the initial purchase, as aluminum railings require minimal maintenance, saving you time and money in the long run. Their resistance to corrosion, moisture, and temperature changes means you won’t need to invest in constant repairs or replacements. Moreover, the ease of installation and the lightweight nature of aluminum railings reduce labor costs, making them a practical and budget-friendly choice for homeowners and project managers looking to enhance both the aesthetics and safety of their properties.
7. Eco Friendly
Aluminum deck railings have the advantage of being environmentally friendly. When they reach the end of their long lifespan, they can be repurposed and recycled rather than contributing to landfills. As a recyclable material, aluminum reduces waste and lessens the demand for new raw materials, making it a sustainable choice for environmentally conscious consumers.
