Fabricating Aluminum Railing

It only takes a few minutes to assemble an 8-ft. section of aluminum railing, provided you already have pre-cut balusters and top and bottom rails…and a machine capable of generating 185 tons of pressure to press everything together. Ultralox brought their huge interlocking machine to the Deck Expo to demonstrate their weld-free process for fabricating aluminum railing. Though intended primarily for building product distributors, this machine might be a useful addition for high-volume commercial and residential deck and fencing contractors too.
