4. What are the benefits of using powder-coated railings?

Powder-coated railings are rust-free, corrosion-resistant, and low-maintenance. Powder-coated railings only need an occasional cleaning to be in their best condition.

7. How can you beautify your deck or patio with CPL Aluminum Railings & Glass?

Our aluminum railings for decks come in sleek, elegant designs that can match the look of any property. Our aluminum railings with the lamb’s tongue design capture the look and elegance of wrought iron railings with an enhanced durability. We offer a variety of models, styles, and powder-coat finishes that can add beauty to your property and match any desired look.


8. Should you add glass railings to your deck?

Glass railings for decks offer an unobstructed view, making them perfect for cottages, vacation homes, and properties with scenic vistas. Aluminum railings for decks offer more privacy than glass, which is why they may be the preferred choice for some residential properties.


9. What’s the difference between a patio and a deck?

Patios are built directly on the ground and may be separated from the house/property. Patio railings are not always necessary but are often used for design purposes. Decks are built above ground level and are always attached to the house/property. Decks usually require railings for safety.

Our topless glass railings allow for scenic, panoramic views, making them perfect for rooftop terraces, restaurant patios, and cottage decks.


11. How can you ensure “solitude, space, & protection” with CPL Aluminum Railings & Glass?
