The Layout of the Westbury Tuscany Railing System
The Westbury Tuscany railing system is a simple railing system to understand. When purchasing sections of Westbury Tuscany railing you will have a five step process.
Step 1 - Choose Your Deck Post
The first step in the process is determining what type of post you want to use with your Tuscany system. You can use a traditional wood post if that's the look you are going for. Otherwise, DecksDirect offers four different post options for the Westbury Tuscany system. The 2 inch Post Kit by Westbury Aluminum Railing which is a 2x2 inch post that includes one post cap, one post skirt, & two leveling shims, the Post by Westbury Aluminum Railing which is available in 2x2 or 4x4 inch sizes but does not come with the cap or skirt or the Westbury Fascia Mount Post With Bracket which allows you to maximize the surface area of your deck. Keep in mind that if you are looking to use the Tuscany Crossover Brackets to have a continuous top rail you will need to use the 2x2 inch Tuscany aluminum posts.
Step 2 - Deck Post Cap
Next, decide how you want to top/cap your posts. Do you want a little bit of illumination or just something to cover the top of the post? DecksDirect has a wide variety of post caps in different material types in both lit and unlit varieties. If you're looking to match perfectly with the Tuscany Railing system then we would recommend the Magena Star Titan Post Cap Light by Westbury which matches both the size and color options available with Tuscany railing, the Post Cap for Westbury Aluminum Railing which is the same post cap that is available with the 2 inch Post Kit, or the Ball Top Post Cap for Westbury Aluminum Railing which features a classic ball top in the same color of finish and sizes available with Tuscany railing. Definitely feel free to go with something completely your own as well!
Step 3 - Deck Post Skirt
Westbury makes the Post Skirt/Flair by Westbury Aluminum Railing which matches both the size and color options available with Tuscany railing. This post skirt comes in two pieces for easy installation and is made from the same low maintenance powder-coated aluminum as Tuscany Railing.
Step 4- Rail & Baluster Kit
Step 4 is where you get your Tuscany Level Rail Section Kit and/or your Tuscany Star Rail Section Kit depending on if your installing level railing, stair railing, or both. Both the level and stair railing section kits have the option to choose from round or square baluster infill, are available in the four Tuscany color options, and come in 36 inch and 42 inch rail heights. The level rail kit is available in 5 ft, 6 ft, 7 ft, and 8 ft sections. The stair rail kit is available in only 6 ft and 8 ft sections.
Step 5 - Deck Railing Brackets for Angled Railing or Stair Railing Sections
In order to complete your Westbury Tuscany railing installation, you will have to connect the rail sections to your posts. There's no easier way to do this than with the combined efforts of the Tuscany Brackets For Westbury Aluminum Railing and the Installation Tool for Westbury Rail System. This step is optional because your level rail and stair rail section kits come with included mounting brackets, however, sometimes you have a special angle that a traditional bracket won't accommodate for. Westbury offers the Angle Swivel Mounts that can be used to mount rail sections between 0° and 45° horizontally, and up to 43° vertically. Fixed Stair Mounts that are used to mount railing sections on stairs with a standard 32° to 36° angle and Stair Swivel Mounts that accommodate 0° to 43° angles.
