Spruce Up Your Balconies with DesignRail
- Apr 16, 2013
The balcony is the only outdoor space that many apartment renters can call their own. And that is if they are lucky enough to have one. The space, which is a huge amenity for many urban renters, can be tailored to serve as a breakfast nook on summer mornings or as a spot to enjoy a drink with friends at night. Unfortunately, many balcony finishes are more of an afterthought. The good news is that Freeney Inc. has an easy solution to quickly spruce up your building’s outdoor space and improve your curb appeal.
DesignRail is an aluminum railing frame system featuring a set of design details aimed at achieving an affordable, long-lasting railing with structural integrity. The railing can be quickly cut and assembled on site using components that snap and screw together. Both contractors and your residents will appreciate the quick and easy installation. The rail and stanchion extrusions are made from high-strength 6000-series aluminum with over 70 percent recycled content. A powder-coated finish ensures color retention, impact resistance and weather protection. There are eight standard and 200 custom colors to choose from, as well as cap rail, cable, glass and picket infill options.
The rails can also be equipped with ADA compliant grab rails, custom gates and low-voltage LED lights that can add a design statement or safety feature. For more information on the DesignRail system, be sure to visit Freeney’s website.
