Multi-Family Housing

When it comes to aluminum railing on multi-family residences, there are two primary uses. First, and often most prevalent, is safely guarding exterior balconies from the ground floor to the top floor. Our Series 9000 Heavy-Duty Railing is the most popular option when it comes to an aesthetically-pleasing system that delivers safety and code-compliance. Each balcony railing is custom-built to the exact dimensional needs of the project, making installation simple and efficient.

If Series 9000 Railing is appealing, but you would prefer a continuous top rail, then Series 9100 Architectural Railing might be for you.

Looking for a more modernized railing to match the aesthetical style of your project? Series 2000 Cable Railing and Series 9H Horizontal Railing both offer stunning modern twists on the traditional railing formula!

The secondary primary railing use for multifamily buildings is handrail for stairs and ramps. Many flights of stairs are needed to complete an apartment complex, which means many sections of handrail will also be necessary. Superior’s Series 500 Pipe Railing perfectly accommodates any stairway or ramp, meeting all code requirements. As an added bonus, all Superior pipe railing is compatible with any of Superior Aluminum's standard railing options, including matching the finish. No guardrail? No problem! Series 500 Pipe Railing can also be attached directly to a wall.

Columns from Superior Aluminum also can be featured in multifamily settings, applicable as support for overhanging structures such as balconies, porches, or paths. A variety of column profiles, cap/base styles, and finishes make it easy to match the look of your project with load-bearing support.
