Iron Railing with a Composite Flare

Iron railing has been a popular style of railing for quite some time on all different kinds of decks and porches.  From Composites to Hardwoods to the common Redwood deck; deck builders, contractors and DIY’s alike have been using them.  This is no exception with CFC Fences and Decks working in Utah, Salt Lake, and Davis, Weber, Tooele, and Summit counties in Utah.

Custom Iron railings can be expensive and sometimes installed weeks after the deck is completed because the amount of time it takes to manufacture.  We still use custom iron, but what has been very popular this past year has been an iron product called Fortress Iron.  The reason for the popularity is that it is purchased as a panel that can then be used with different post applications.  We have been using the Trex, Timbertech, and Evergrain composite post sleeves with the Fortress panel, which ties things together very nicely.  We also offer another composite flare.  Fortress Iron is also made so that with a simple bracket you can add a top rail, whether using a wood or composite. The 2×4 dresses it up and also makes it nice to set a drink on while enjoying the view.

The picture is from a job completed this last year in Orem, Ut.  The materials used were the Trex Transcend posts and 2×4 top caps, with the Fortress Iron in Bronze.

There are some projects that just look good. The colors match perfectly with the house and other landscaping that has been done. It all comes together so well that you can’t help but be pleased. This job in Pleasant Grove Utah is one of those jobs.

This deck is a Trex Transcend decking with bronzed iron railing. The homeowners said they wanted the top level of the deck finished this year and next year they’re going to expand it with another level and wrap around stairs. The most interesting aspect of this deck is the under the deck space.

We’ve talked about using Trex RainEscapes to create an outdoor room, but what these homeowners did was create an outdoor storage space under their deck with Trex Seclusions Composite Fencing. By wrapping the bottom of their deck with Trex Seclusions they are able to keep their things out of the elements and safe in their storage area. It creates a seamless look under their deck.
