Trex Commercial Products ' New Railing
Effortless style and exceptional strength are the ‘signatures’ of the newest railing option from Trex Commercial Products, a national leader in engineering and manufacturing ornamental railing systems for commercial building applications. Combining sophisticated design with the unparalleled strength of aluminum, Trex Signature® railing lives up to its name by affording architects and developers the flexibility and confidence to create truly distinctive spaces.
“Trex Signature is ideal for a wide range of applications from multi-family residential to office buildings, restaurants and retail complexes,” said Dan Stachel, vice president of sales and marketing for Trex Commercial Products. “Equal parts form and function, Trex Signature railing delivers the durability and low-maintenance qualities that developers and property managers seek, with a visually appealing, contemporary aesthetic.”
Offering a minimalist look that is stylish in its own right, Trex Signature is designed to highlight the beauty of what lies beyond the railing. The streamlined, unobtrusive design features panels with traditional balusters that visibly blend with the natural surroundings to optimize sightlines from patios, balconies, decks or public walkways. Continuously graspable rail options are available for added safety, comfort and functionality.
Durability and Design Versatility
Suitable for interior or exterior applications, Trex Signature is made with premium-grade aluminum for superior strength and durability. This structural integrity also affords design versatility, as Signature can be curved for one-of-a-kind applications.
Durable powder coating in a choice of three neutral colors – Charcoal Black, Bronze and Classic White – allows the railings to resist corrosion and retain their color with very little maintenance. An occasional cleaning is all that is needed to maintain a like-new appearance. For added assurance, Trex Signature railing is backed by a 15-year finish warranty.
Enhancing its appeal, Trex Signature railing is simple to install. Pre-assembled panels are available in a variety of stock lengths to accommodate any commercial project and have been proved in field testing to reduce assembly time by up to 50%.
“Specifiers and contractors appreciate the simplicity of pre-assembled railings but also want design flexibility,” Stachel added. “Trex Signature delivers on both counts.”
Trex Signature railing is manufactured in-house to ensure quality control over each step of the manufacturing process. Furthermore, the aluminum used to manufacture Trex Signature is made from 50% recycled material and is a 100% recyclable, renewable resource, allowing it to contribute valuable LEED points to commercial projects.
