How to Install AFCO Pro Series Railing

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.

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.
Complete Your AFCO Railing with Deck Lighting
The brilliant way to highlight the style of your home while adding illumination and safety for your family, friends, and guests; the Ornamental Low Voltage LED Post Caps by LMT Mercer can protect your posts and installation hardware by blocking out everyday water, dirt, and debris.
