Railing Dynamics Launches Aluminium Novaline Railing Line
- Mar 30, 2009
Railing Dynamics Inc. has launched three new baluster options to its Novaline railing line. In the past, the company offered Novaline with wood-fiber structural top and bottom beams and one baluster option.Now, Novaline has been modified with stronger, structural aluminum and offers balusters in square, belly, glass, or ¾-in. round iron profiles. The balusters are boxed and sold separately.RDI began offering in-fill baluster options for its Endurance systems, and has since received requests from many of their distributors for Novaline. This resulted in the company’s reengineering of the Novaline system to accommodate the new options. The problem, according to Product Development Engineer, Jason Werner, was that, “the wood-fiber structural beams did not allow for the infill customization we were looking to achieve. By using aluminum structural beams, we can now offer a stronger, highly customizable system while enhancing Novaline’s safety, dependability and ease of installation.” Werner says that a common complaint with the wood fiber was that the bottom structural component was exposed on the underside. Application of a white powder-coated finish to the aluminum to match the finish of the Pearl components alleviated the problem.
