DuraLast Architectural Railing
DuraLast Railing systems are a new innovation in architectural railing from Dixie-Pacific. Made from rigid PVC with impact modifiers and high levels of titanium dioxide to protect against uv degradation, DuraLast Railing is built first and foremost to be railing. Unlike other forms of ornamental fencing that can be used as railing but were never designed for it, DuraLast Railing is built to handle the stress and strain needed from safe, reliable railing.
In addition to its superior design and construction, DuraLast Railing offers many advantages over wood, aluminum and steel railing systems. Engineered with changing climate conditions in mind, DuraLast Railing is designed to accomodate normal expansion and contraction due to changes in temperature. The materials DuraLast Railing is made from are very resistant to catching fire, and will "self-extinguish" once the source of ignition has been removed. Regarding strength, DuraLast Railing is engineered to meet and exceed IBC 2000 and IBC 2003 building codes when installed properly.
Dixie-Pacific has designed DuraLast Railing to be as maintenance-free as possible. The high levels of titanium dioxide contained in the product will prevent it from yellowing or losing its original color, and cleaning the railing usually only requires a damp cloth. For stubborn dirt or stains, the railing can be power-washed with water or chlorine bleach.
