Progress (Note the difference between
top 2 railings and older lower Railing):
over 12 years Structural Vinyl Railing systems have been chosen to complement, enhance and complete
deck and balcony structures both large and small.
For beauty and
durability in a vinyl railing product, nothing surpasses Structural
architectural design by specifying Structural Vinyl Railing!
railing was pioneered over a decade ago and continues to break
new ground with convenient knocked down kits.
Designed and packaged to
be easy to order, stock and install, Structural Vinyl Railing continues to set new
standards in railing systems. Structural Vinyl Railing captures the look of custom
fabricated railing with a standard, stock, kit system. Easy to assemble
on the job site, Structural Vinyl Railing enhances any architectural style.
Vinyl Railing utilizes vinyl that is only virgin PVC: Designed for outdoor
structural applications, all vinyl is of high-grade, exterior weather
resistant compound impregnated with impact modifiers and UV
inhibitors. This proprietary vinyl compound is designed specifically to
withstand the harsh coastal environments. To ensure product performance,
Structural Vinyl Rail does not allow co-extrusion in their manufacturing process,
virtually eliminating visible damage from external sources.
Balusters are designed
to maximize visibility and measure 1" outside diameter with 3/16" wall.
All vertical posts,
horizontal rails and top rails have a 2" outside diameter with a 5/16"
wall. Additionally, core posts inherit the strength of 1" schedule 80
galvanized steel tubing and a 2-1/2" -4" core tail that protrudes from
the vinyl for core mounting applications.
Vertical flange posts
also have 1" schedule 80 steel tubing which is welded to a 3/8" x 3" x
3" steel flange plate. This plate is conveniently pre-punched for
4,3/8" diameter lags and center punched for drainage. Finally it is
hot-dipped and heavy galvanized to completely protect all surfaces and
Maximum post spacing is
5'from centerline to centerline and maximum spacing between members is
4", based on code compliant testing data. Posts were designed with
gentle radius 45° & 90° corners and have offset posts in each direction.
For strength that
exceeds code compliance, top line horizontal rails boasts 1" schedule 40
galvanized steel tubing. Middle and bottom line horizontal railing have
a 2" outside diameter with no internal stiffeners. Maximum continuous
uninterrupted run is 50-75 lineal feet. This dimension allows for
expansion and contraction which varies with environment.
"THE SMARTEST DESIGN
CHOICE YOU CAN MAKE"
POST MOUNTING TYPES
Flange Mount (standard or angled):
Structural Vinyl Railing posts can be easily and
securely bolted to the deck surface using 4, 3/8" bolts, galvanized lag
or through bolts. The decision of bolt style to be utilized should be
driven by the needs of the application. For esthetic purposes, 2-piece
Flange Mount base covers are available.
To create the most secure guardrail, install
Structural Vinyl Railing's
core mount posts. A 3" diameter x 2-1/2" - 4" deep core hole is required
when setting in non-shrink hydraulic cement, which is the recommended
Fascia Mount: When a project requires the deck surface to remain clear,
utilize Structural Vinyl Railing's fascia mount posts. When using this method, the
vinyl covered steel stiffener will extend past the deck surface and
vinyl capped on the bottom. The post can be bored and through-bolted to
the surface of the decking or white, powder coated aluminum brackets can
When an end wall is available,
Structural Vinyl Railing's system can be
wall mounted using mini-flanges with covers.
HEIGHTS, CONFIGURATIONS & APPLICATIONS
Standard residential height is 36" while standard commercial is 42".
Standard configuration is level rail. All other configurations require
custom fabricated components that are available through the Structural
Vinyl Railing network of
regional fabricators, located throughout the U.S.A.
Specially designed for use in installations where railing
strength is especially critical: Multi-unit residential apartments,
hotels, motels, condominiums, amusement parks, boardwalks, custom homes,
water treatment facilities, food processing facilities, pools,
commercial properties, municipal properties, parks and recreation
facilities and more.
Vinyl Railing is code compliant and independent test results are available.
Structural Vinyl Railing carries BOCA-mandated strength and is ADA-compliant for
retrofits. ADA compliance for 1-1/2" diameter handrail has been granted.
Continuous Handrails can be easily fabricated onsite-from the top of the
guardrail then up or down the staircase without a break.
Additionally Structural Vinyl Railing is non-conductive and fire-retardant for safety
lines and bright white gloss finish complements any design
finish-no fasteners, clips, screws or rivets
lines-no welds to snag
45° and 90° radius corners are standard stock
