How to Install AFCO Pro Series Railing

Mount the AFCO Deck Posts

To install AFCO deck railing, start by mounting your AFCO metal deck posts in position with structural screws or lags. There must be at least 4 inches of blocking beneath the deck where AFCO posts need to be mounted for true structural strength.

Find the Railing Length Per Area

Measure and trim the AFCO rails to length per your railing section opening, and then create the balustrade by setting balusters in place in the openings in the bottom rail.

Build the AFCO Pro Railing Kit

With balusters set in their openings, place the top rail in position by feeding each baluster into its specific opening. When the deck rail assembly is complete, loosely set the brackets on the top and bottom rails but do not attach. Set the AFCO railing section in place between the posts.

Mount the AFCO Railing Section Between Posts

Set the rail kit on support material measuring at least 2 inches up from the deck surface. When at the correct height, attach the bottom rail brackets and top rail brackets to the deck posts via their coordinating screws.
