All Regal railings are constructed of an exclusive High-Strength Aluminum Alloy that will never rust or corrode, even in areas where moisture is a problem. Regal products contain up to 25 percent more aluminum than other systems. All aluminum components are powder coated and finished with durable polyurethane via the durable RAILCOAT™ application. This exclusive powder coated finish is the premier coating available in the market today. When applied to these railings. RAILCOAT™ is twice the thickness and hardness of the typical baked enamel finish. Consequently, it is more durable, fade-resistant and scratch-resistant than other coatings. It is available in five colors - white, black, beige, yard bronze and taupe (the last two are available in texture finish).
All components are covered by Regal's limited 20-year warranty and guaranteed not to crack, chip or peel.
This system is also designed to accommodate four attractive styles: Straight Picket, Basket Picket, Wide Picket, or Clear Tempered Glass Panels.
Our engineering testing supports maximum spans of 8’ with pickets and 6’ with glass. Spans beyond this will need a middle post to comply with the engineering testing.
