Deckorators Introduces Pre-Assembled, Welded Aluminum Deck Railing

Cable Deckorators ALX Contemporary Cable Railing
Brand also debuts new cable rail, aluminum secondary handrail

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., December 10, 2019 Deckorators, a leading manufacturer of composite decking, deck railing, balusters, post caps and related products, has introduced ALX Contemporary pre-assembled aluminum deck railing in welded panels. The pre-assembled system saves deck builders valuable time and effort on railing installation, while the welding maximizes rigidity and strength.

Deckorators ALX Contemporary pre-assembled aluminum deck railing features a sleek and modern look, with a thick powder-coated finish that resists scratches and corrosion. The panels come in four colors: Textured Black, Textured White, Weathered Brown and Bronze. Brushed Titanium is also available in pre-assembled anodized aluminum panels that are punched instead of welded.=

ALX Contemporary railing features a sleek 2-inch wide rectangle top rail profile paired with square balusters. It is available in 36- and 42-inch heights and 6- and 8-foot on-center lengths when installed between 2½-inch posts. The 2½-inch post kits feature 1-piece post trim and a leveling plate. Pre-assembled adjustable stair rail panels and two-piece post trim are also available. 

ALX Contemporary railing is backed by a lifetime limited warranty on manufacturing defects and powder coating, a 25-year removal-and-replacement warranty, and a 10-year saltwater applications warranty. For more information, visit or call 800-332-5724.

“Our Deckorators Certified Pro partners told us there was a need in the market for pre-assembled aluminum railing with more rigidity and strength,” said Chris Camfferman, managing director of marketing for Deckorators. “ALX Contemporary pre-assembled welded aluminum railing meets that need while cutting installation time and giving homeowners the sleek, simple appearance they want.”

Deckorators has also added two other options to its complete line of deck railing solutions: Deckorators ALX Contemporary cable railing and Deckorators aluminum secondary handrail.

Deckorators ALX Contemporary cable railing achieves a clean, minimalist style that will not obstruct views. The system’s heavy-gauge aluminum components, including a 2-inch wide rectangular top rail, are available in four colors: Textured Black, Textured White, Weathered Brown and Bronze. A powder-coated finish resists scratches and corrosion.

316 stainless steel cable and hardware kits are available in the following cable lengths: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40 and 50 feet with anodized aluminum cable spacers. Cable can span up to 50 feet on a railing run before a stop or start is required, and the stainless cable is backed by a 10-year limited warranty on manufacturing defects. 

ALX Contemporary cable railing is available with pre-drilled aluminum posts for 36- and 42-inch heights and 6- and 8-foot on-center lengths when installed between 2½-inch posts. Rail kits, pre-drilled post kits and cable kits are sold individually. The system is also available pre-assembled with square balusters.
