Metal deck railing systems have their roots deep in the past, and their popularity hasn’t faded since then. Metals are durable, deformation resistant, and flexible in design, which makes them a wonderful choice for deck railings.
Due to its low maintenance, aluminum becomes one of the best variants for metal railings for outdoor steps and decks. It’s rust resistant and tolerates Toronto weather, asking little in return.
Wrought iron is good for creating complicated ornaments, especially thin parts. It can’t be galvanized, and not all powder coats will lie down on this metal, so this is the best choice for interior railings.But if yourepaint and repair your railings regularly, corrosion and rust will not be a problem for the outside too.
Steel is an extremely durable and strong material, yet vulnerable to rust. However, nowadays steel deck railings are sold with special protective finishes like galvanizing or powder coat. Our Art Metal Workshop experts can choose the best coating for your area’s weather conditions and make your steel railings live longer.
Horizontal metal deck railings are the elements that are put on and between posts to create handrails and support balusters or panels from both top and bottom.
Panels are a substitution to simple balusters. On a metal panel a picture or ornament is cut and placed between the posts and the railings. Designs of such elements have to be created so the space between decorative elements is no more than 4”. All our designs at Art Metal Workshop are made this way, and we can fit your design to this requirement.
Two or more vertical columns supporting the whole railing construction are the posts. They can be decorated with caps (put on the top of a sleeve) and skirts (put on the bottom of a sleeve) for better aesthetics.
These are mostly vertical elements that are put between the posts and attached from the top and the bottom to the railings. They can be of any design or color if all spacing requirements are met.
You have to choose the material according to your climate, free time for maintenance, style of the home, etc. If you are in Toronto, we can help you with the choice, as our company has over12 years of experience in railing construction and installation.
