Our decorative deck railing designs are low maintenance saving you time and money! Decks are built for fun, family and friends. Make the most of your backyard paradise with custom deck railing panels that are high quality and built to last. Your choice of metal railing, we have both steel deck railing or aluminum deck railing. Great for porch rails also!

Carefully consider the cost of maintaining your deck after the initial build. It costs an extra $1.00-2.00 per square foot per year to keep a wooden deck looking good. And besides, who wants to be sanding and painting the deck railing every year when you should be sitting on the deck with a cold drink enjoying the view and the warm weather.

Metal Deck Railing – Maintenance Free!

With this option, you will receive your decorative deck railing panel with welded square tubing around the perimeter of the panel. This also makes the panel extra durable. In addition, a 2.25″ or 1.75″ wide metal cap rail is welded to the top, to be used as the handrail. Two installation tabs are welded to the sides of each panel, as depicted in our Maintenance Free Installation Guide. This allows for quick, easy, bolt-in installation and a maintenance-free decorative railing. Your deck or porch railing is available in either steel or aluminum. We manufacture to your specifications.

Our Unique Quality Process in Creating Your Deck Railing

NatureRails deck railing panels are cut from heavy gauge steel or aluminum by a high-pressure state-of-the-art water jet machine. We use a water jet machine instead of a laser as the detail and cut are much finer. After the design is cut from the metal, it is dipped in an acid wash bath that includes a rust inhibitor.

Your metal deck railing design is then sandblasted to ensure it is super clean and the powder coating will adhere strongly to the metal. A thick primer layer of powder coating is applied, and then the second layer of powder coating, in the color of your choice, is sprayed on. The decorative railing is then put into an enormous oven to bake on the powder coating at high temperatures.

For a more visual view of the process, watch our Youtube Video How Decorative Railings are Made which shows the detailed craftsmanship that goes into making every railing for your deck or porch.

Unlimited Deck Railing Design Potential

We carry a variety of designs in our Designer Six Foot Railing, and also in our Designer Eight Foot Railing panels or we can create a custom work of art to fit your distinctive style. We can create one continuous scene across your deck or build individual panels. Mild to wild, award-winning nature artist Rob Gerdin can create anything you can imagine from a stick figure drawing, particular animals or plants, or a railing resembling a favorite piece of art. We have done all that! Our wildlife railing panels are a truly unique alternative to ordinary spindles and balusters and will make your deck look amazing.
