A recent notable trend in the new residential and home improvement markets is the growing demand for products that enhance outdoor living spaces for a functional and inviting lifestyle. Many homeowners add decks, porches, and balconies that present an elevated aesthetic and a place to relax with family and friends. Key criteria among homeowners are products that complement the overall design of their home and are contemporary in appearance, exceptionally durable and easy to maintain.

Within the overall decking and railing product category, there is a significant movement towards the use of aluminum railings that offer distinctive designs while offering unparalleled durability and minimal maintenance. Aluminum railing systems are rapidly replacing wood, composite, vinyl and steel railing products on the market. Wooden railings can warp and warp and should be painted or stained. Aluminum railings are more durable than vinyl railings and are easier to maintain. Composite railing systems are more complicated, more expensive and more difficult to install than aluminum deck and porch railings. Unlike steel railings, aluminum railings do not rust and are much lighter, making them easier to install.

The Westbury Aluminum Railing is manufactured to provide a durable finish. DSI’s ten-step powder coating process is the most rigorous in the industry. Raw materials are carefully selected and inspected to ensure the aluminum base is free from contaminants and defects. To provide complete coverage, 20 spray guns are used to apply the architectural powder coating. The coating is then bonded to the aluminum railing components in a 400 degree curing step. DSI is the only aluminum railing manufacturer whose powder coating process is Powder Coating Institute (PCI) 4000 certified and meets the rigorous specifications to be verified as AAMA compliant. The result of this meticulous process is a deck railing system that offers a durable color finish backed by DSI’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
