Picket Railing

For many classic home styles, our white picket railing is the perfect fit. Picket railing is a popular choice when stairs are part of the installation. It is also a lighter application which is often preferred for gates.

Built to Last

CrystaLite railing systems feature the thickest walled posts and rails on the market; while maintaining narrow sight-lines for maximum visibility. Known for strength, weather resistance, and long lasting performance, aircraft grade 6063-T6 aluminum alloy is used in all posts and top-rails.

Configurations

Posts and Pieces

Post Sizes

We offer 3 sizes of vertical posts: 3.5" (9060), 2.5" (9006), and 1.75" (9005). CrystaLite will select the appropriate post size and spacing to meet code requirements, exposure criteria, with wind speeds up to 120 mph.

Side Mount Corner Bracket

Allows for single post in the corners of side mounted installations which reduces materials needed, thus cost; and allows for desired aesthetics of a single post. Bracket designed for 0 - 1/2" spacing. Accepts custom angles.

Concealed Fasteners

All stainless steel railing fasteners are hidden from view and weather.

Custom Angle Posts

Angles are possible from 25° to 180° which allows for most custom layouts.

Base Plates

Mechanically fastened with stainless steel screws for maximum strength. Grooved bottom surface allows for a greater area for wet seal to adhere to for applications that require sealant - such as water-proof membranes. Constructed from solid extruded aluminum.

Top Rails

Our 9000, 9001 and 9036 rail caps are fitted to the vertical post as a top guard or intermediate rail. The 9039 rail cap is designed to act as a grab rail in hand rail situations. The 9002 and 9023 caps can run over our 1-3/4" and 2-1/2" posts. 9023 and 9036 are designed to butt cleanly with our 3-1/2" post. The 9002 and 9023 rail caps are semi-flat top railing - popular by those that prefer the 2 x 4 look and feel.

Gate Hardware

CrystaLite gates utilize the finest quality latch and hinge hardware on the market to ensure your gate will be strong and secure. We have a large variety of hardware to accommodate any installation need; such as pool enclosures, yard fencing, and security gates. Shown are our most commonly utilized gate hardware.
