Aluminum Railing by Afco

Aluminum Railing by Afco

Why Andy likes this product: Afco put a lot of thought and planning into their knock-down rail system. They toured the country working with contractors and industry leaders like us to determine what was missing in the marketplace, what were some of the common problems their competitors systems have and how to eliminate them. The result is a very attractive railing system that is easy and quick to install and yet still captures that custom made look.

Special product notes:Afco has made it easy to determine what you need to finish your project; all the collars, connectors, screws and other small pieces are included in the rail kits. Determine your lengths and heights and just order rail kits, balusters packs and post kits. That it and you are done.

Key product features:

  • 100% powder-coated aluminum
  • Posts are structural, not a wrap or sleeve
  • 36 inch and 42 inch heights available

Dekor Premium Cast LED Light

Dekor Premium Cast LED Light

Why Andy likes this product: Strong and long-lasting, that’s how I describe this rugged yet adaptable light. Strong because it the heaviest most substantial cast aluminum light that is out there. You can see it in the pictures but when you pick it up you know, this isn’t some stamped cap that will be lucky to last a season. And how many caps can look as good on a cedar & cable-rail deck as on a full aluminum railing system? Not Many!

The longevity of this light is incomparable too. Not only does it utilize LEDs for thousands of maintenance free hours of enjoyment but the powder coating is second to none. This post cap light can survive a hailstorm and looking like it just came out of the box. And it is consistently one of our best sellers, year after years. Hundreds of satisfied customers can’t all be wrong.

Special product notes: The light from this post cap will never blind your or leaving you guessing if it is working or not. The LEDs point down towards the decks to really provide strong illumination on the deck where it is needed (and wanted).

Key product features:

  • Voltage: 12 volt DC
  • Matching unlit post caps
  • Colors Available: Hammered White, Antique Metal Black, Oil Rubbed Bronze and Dark Copper Vein
  • Sizes Available: 3-1/2", 4-1/8", 4-9/16", 5-1/18", 5-1/2" and 6-1/16”
  • Powder-coated aluminum
  • Compatible remote dimmer available
