Outdoor Railings

Decks are perfect for spending time outdoors. Without the proper outdoor railing systems, decks can become dangerous. Outdoor railings for your deck are required for any deck space that is more than 24 inches above the ground or 1.2 metres from a highly sloped ground.

Deck and staircase railings are not only major benefits of your deck aesthetics but help keep your deck safe from falls. Railings can be made from a number of materials. Outdoor deck railings are key to getting the most from your deck space.

Your outdoor deck and staircase railings needs to be perfect for your deck’s appearance and function. You can trust the experts at Mountain View Sun Decks, our team of outdoor living professionals can design and install a variety of quality, long-lasting exterior, and deck railings.

Aluminum Outdoor Railings

Aluminum is made from a blend of natural compounds and is commonly found in soil with other materials such as sulphur, silicon, and oxygen. Aluminum outdoor railings are more durable than wood or iron, they require less maintenance and repairs and can stand against the hottest and coldest Albertan temperatures. Aluminum is resistant to any types of corrosion and can last for upwards of 20 years without major repair requirements.

Glass Outdoor Railings

Glass railings can be upscale, inviting and fully customized to meet your specific needs. Glass railings are commonly made from panels that are braced with aluminum balusters and can have a top bar. Topless glass railings can be more modern and can be more effective in showcasing the beautiful views from your deck. Tinted or frosted glass can be used to increase the privacy on your deck. Tall glass can be used to effectively block the wind for properties that back onto highly exposed areas.

Deck Railings

Falls from more than 12 metres will almost certainly be fatal, though any fall higher than a foot or two can cause serious injuries. Deck railings are important for limiting the fall risks proposed by a deck and can make the most of the deck space. Wood, aluminum and glass-based railings can all be used as sole deck materials. A combination of railing materials can also be used to craft a complete one-of-a-kind railing. Deck railings help keep your deck safe from falls and allow the deck space to reach its aesthetic potential.

Outdoor Staircase Railings

There are a number of custom exterior railing materials and styles that can be used for your exterior staircases. Aluminum picket railings can be used as a pure system or in combination with wooden materials. Wood railings can be a very inexpensive alternative to meeting your railing needs. Staircase railings need to match the angle of the stairs, which can be determined with a stair angle calculator. A stair angle calculator can be used to consider the stair rise, total rise and run as well as the stringer length, stair tread and more.
