Elegant Aluminum Rails meet LOAD and IBC codes and come in standard 36″ and 42″ heights. Elegant rails were created to meet the structural needs of architects and can be customized according to plans. As always, custom sizes are available.
Elegant Aluminum Railing Grades
Elegant Aluminum Rails are custom built to jobsite specifications and come in grades ranging from Residential to Commercial. Elegant Aluminum Products will build a safe, secure rail whether the need is a high-rise balcony, deck, front porch, ramp, stairs, or a retaining wall. Keep the following in mind when deciding which grade rail to use. Premier, Architectural, and Commercial Grades meet IBC LOAD Codes. Furthermore, the main differences between the styles are the shapes of the channels, including the top covers, and whether or not the posts are above or below the top channel. As always, Elegant Aluminum can provide custom designs and heights to suit your railing needs.
Residential Grade Rail
This grade of railing is primarily used to create a decorative touch on porches and ground level decks. Residential railing allows homeowners to match the style used in their perimeter or pool fence, creating a consistent flow between railing and fencing. This grade of railing does not meet IBC load code ratings and should only be used in areas that are 30’’ or less above grade. Residential railing can be ordered to match any fence style or configuration, whether it is a two or three channel design.
Residential Rail does NOT meet load codes. (S/R, T/R & Architectural)
Commercial Grade Rail
This grade of railing can be used in a variety of applications where an IBC load rating must be upheld. Commercial railings are commonly used on raised porches, decks, balconies, stairwells and accessible ramps. All commercial railings utilize a two part channel and cover system that locks together, forming a smooth railing free of visible fasteners. Commercial railing can be ordered in four different styles and two different heights to suit your application. 36’’ tall railings are suitable in areas that are located 30’’ or less above grade. 42’’ tall railings are suitable in any area located 30’’ or more above grade.
