Fortress FE26 Steel Railing combines the enduring beauty of wrought iron railing with a modern sense of protection and ease. FE26 Prefabricated Adjustable Stair panels are complete, pre-welded sections that are available in 6 foot and 8 foot lengths (nominal- on center measurements) and can be adjusted for up to 40 degrees. For a custom-made look at a DIY cost, Fortress provides the opportunity to have a stunning railing system that is perfect for stairways and ramps, yet is twice as strong as aluminum.

FE26 is the strongest railing system on the market today. Made with 100% pre-galvanized steel and coated with FortressShield, a multi-layered anti-corrosion coating technology adapted from the automotive industry, Fortress railing is virtually maintenance-free and made to last.

To install these panels, you may use a combination of the Universal Rail Bracket and a Universal Angle Bracket Adapter or simply use an adjustable FE26 Collar Bracket. Fortress FE26 Steel Railing can be mounted on any surface including concrete, wood or composite.

These panels are available in three finishes: Gloss Black, pitted Antique Bronze, and textured Black Sand. An abundance of accessories are also open to customize and bring your deck to life such as the Accent Top Panel, the Cap Rail Clip to add a functional yet stunning drink rail, or the Accents LED Post Cap Light Module to give your backyard brightness.
