STEP 1: Railing Panels
Fortress Traditional Aluminum Railing Al13Home with Drink Rail

Step 1: Select Railing Panel

  • Fortress aluminum railing is available in 6’ and 8’ sections.
  • Choose from 36”, 42” and 48” heights.
Note: Aluminum railing panel must be installed with an Accent Top Rail (ATR) or a drink rail attached with Fortress cap rail clips. (See Step 3)

Panel Selection Tips:

  • Try to make all railing sections on a row the same size.  (For 20 feet of railing, create four 5’ sections with 6’ rails or three approximately 7’ sections with 8’ rails – rather than 6’, 6’, 8’.)
  • Railing panel length is measured from the center of the post to the center of the post. Therefore, the actual length of the railing panel is slightly less than 6’ or 8’.
  • Check your local building codes to ensure height compliance. 

The following requirements apply in Ontario:

  • If the deck/porch height is above-grade 5' or more, your handrail should be 42" high (from the deck surface).
  • If the deck/porch height is less than 5' above-grade, your handrail should be 36" high (from the deck surface).
  • If the deck/porch height is less than 2' above-grade, a railing is not required.
