Transform ordinary spaces into stunning spaces with railing infill options
April 29, 2019
When it comes to building or remodeling a backyard deck, the railing is the finishing touch that can bring character and breathe new life into an existing outdoor space. In fact, due to their safety considerations, railings are often one of the most important parts of a deck. At the same time, homeowners also want a railing that is stylish and complements their home’s architecture.
Alternative infill solutions are growing in popularity as architects, builders and homeowners look for creative ways to personalize and differentiate spaces. Beyond being functional, infill can add an element of style that ties together the outdoor living space and the home’s design aesthetic.
Here are a variety of railing infill options that deliver style, function and safety.
Horizontal Cable Infill
Stainless steel cable infill is a great way to optimize any view. This versatile infill is not only highly durable and low maintenance, but delivers a very sophisticated, clean-lined look and feel. It can be used with wood, metal and composite-sleeved railings and works with a variety of architectural styles – from rustic to transitional to contemporary.
This type of infill is available in a variety of materials and styles, including stainless steel wire mesh and laser cut aluminum panels with powder coated finishes. The infills can be mixed-and-matched with other infill options to create a custom look.
Clear or custom tinted tempered glass panels in a weather-resistant aluminum frame offer a sleek, minimalist look while providing a visually unimpeded view. While this type of infill can create the illusion of no railing, it does require regular cleaning to ensure the clearest view possible. See a comparison of glass and cable infill, posted earlier on our blog.
Vertical Cable Infill
Like horizontal cable railing, this infill type maximizes the view while providing a durable, sustainable railing solution that will stand up to the elements. The clean vertical lines create an airy, spacious effect while letting in the breeze.
Installing pickets made of powder coated aluminum adds clean-lined beauty to a deck or balcony while minimizing the need for maintenance. When combined with matching aluminum top and bottom rails, this infill types creates a seamless, integrated look with understated appeal.
With so many stylish and versatile railing infill options, the design possibilities are almost limitless. Learn more about Feeney’s CableRail and other DesignRail® infill options, including new DesignRail® Panel Infill.
