Product Advantages & Features
- Low Maintenance – Superior's columns, railings, and fence provide years of low-maintenance use, with no rusting, corroding, warping, or cracking. Both of our standard finishes - PPG Duracron paint and anodized - meet the technical standards set forth by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association. This means you’ll save on paint and restoration costs long after your railing system is installed.
- Strength – Superior columns, railings, and fence are built with the cornerstone aluminum alloys of the architectural products industry (6063 or 6005A), and are designed to meet required federal, state, and local safety codes, including the Americans with Disabilities Act. In addition, all columns are load bearing to provide the structural integrity your situation requires. You can be confident that Superior's products provide the safety and security you expect.
Low-maintenance use, with no rusting or corroding, warping or cracking
- Value – Superior's columns, railings, and fence offer superb quality at a competitive price, making them perfect for the budget-minded architect, contractor, or property owner who refuses to settle for an inferior product.
- Installation – Aluminum’s lightweight qualities allow for easy handling and placement during the installation process, reducing the time and effort needed. And since your railings and fence are custom-built to fit your application, there is no cutting or bending in the field required.
- Appearance – From timeless to contemporary, one of Superior’s product lines will complement and enhance the look of any residential, commercial, or industrial application without distracting from it.
- Over other Aluminum Manufacturers – The market is flooded with aluminum manufacturers that are concerned with one thing – cost. Where does this leave the consumer? With generic, cookie-cutter railing and fence sections made of thin, undersized aluminum tubing or with aluminum columns that are flimsy and under-engineered for the situation. Not only will the product you receive from Superior Aluminum be ready to install straight from the box, but it will be manufactured to adhere to the highest standards of quality.
- Over Steel/Iron – While steel and iron railing systems may cost less at the time of purchase than aluminum, they quickly begin to rust, which degrades the appearance of the product and increases the maintenance cost to repair and re-paint. These costs over time will negate the initial savings while adding a significant amount of effort and headache for a maintenance team or property owner.
- Over Vinyl/PVC – Vinyl and PVC railings and fence are initially attractive due to their low purchase price. However, these prices require the consumer to sacrifice quality and craftsmanship, as vinyl and PVC products fail to provide the strength and dependability of aluminum.
- Over Wood – Wood columns and railings (left side of photo) require constant care to prevent warping, and cracking, and can degrade in appearance and structural integrity if not properly maintained. Superior’s products (right) are designed for those who want the beauty of wood without the effort.
Aluminum will not rust, rot, or warp like other materials
