As per building code railings must be 34-37 inches high. We aim for 36 inches when we fabricate our railings.
This depends upon the location of the railing. Any steps total of 20 inches or more in height (usually 3 steps) are required to have balusters spaced no more than 4 inches apart.
Any railings with a 20 inches or less drop-off can be left open.
We recommend powder coating, as it is the most durable finish. Oil based paint options are also available. Both options include a primer layer over steel railings, but is not needed for aluminum.
Many railing designs are available in either mild steel or aluminum. More custom designs may only be available in ornamental iron. We also offer wooden cap rail and posts for some of our indoor designs.
