Fe²⁶ Steel Railing from Fortress Building Products

What?
Fe²⁶ steel railing from Fortress Building Products

Why is it needed?
The latest quarterly reading from the U.S Remodeling Index (USRI) revealed that nationwide big-project activity is up 118 percent from Q4 2020. With demand for remodeling services higher than ever, homeowners are looking to contractors to recommend high-value building products that can turn underutilized outdoor spaces into backyard destinations intended for a summer of rest and relaxation on deck. Against this backdrop, dealers and distributers can maximize profit margins by stocking the entire backyard package, and with it, wood-alternative deck railing systems.

What are its uses?
A popular pre-welded solution for deck projects on a tight construction timeline, Fe²⁶ steel railing from Fortress Building Products comes with pre-assembled brackets to speed up the installation process, streamline the ordering experience and provide unmatched consistency and quality. Not only does the pre-welded nature of this steel system support a no-fuss install, but it also maximizes system rigidity and strength. For added protection, Fe²⁶ is dressed in an architectural-grade coating to sideline any issues associated with standard wood railing posts, like rust and corrosion after prolonged exposure to moisture. Fe²⁶ steel railing system is backed by a limited lifetime warranty to maximize investments up and down the channel.

Why is it important?
Providing clean lines and a timeless aesthetic, Fe²⁶ offers an elegant look that was once only available through expensive custom welders. Completely customizable, the steel railing system can be used with wood, composite, vinyl or steel posts, a variety of accent panels and top rails, and premium finishes. Stocking such options will satisfy customer’s design-oriented preferences and drive more sales in the process, making the case for wood-alternative railing systems.
