Aluminum railings for concrete steps are used in many applications around homes including porches. They resemble wrought iron rails in appearance and appearance, but have some clear advantages. The rails of aluminum do not rust and are maintenance-free. They ended on a powder coated surface with a lifetime guarantee, very strong and can handle the elements well. Installing these rails is quite simple, as all the rails are already mounted and the posts are preloaded for the rails.
Measure the size of the aluminum railings for concrete steps to figure out how much material will be needed. Each rack will be six feet in length, and there will be an entry between each piece. Figure in an extra piece that some may need to cut to fit. Bolt the first floor flange in the concrete at the bottom of the veranda or the desired starting point. Drill the two bolts provided in the concrete with a concrete bit through the pre-drilled holes in the bottom flange. Slide preloaded post into the flange and put the bolts through the holes to attach the post flange. Tighten the screws with a wrench.
Move six feet up the veranda and repeat the process by first installing the bottom flange. Go back and make sure all posts are properly tightened and not swaying at all. Begin at the first post; install the aluminum railings for concrete steps by connecting them to the posts. Line rises next to the post and pushes a contact under the top rack. Screw the connector to the post and then to the rack. Slide a contact piece above the bottom rack and connect it to the mail in the same way with the supplied screws. Attached to next post in the same way.tags: aluminum handrails for concrete steps , aluminum concrete step railings
