There are numerous railing styles and options available for residential and custom homes including welded aluminum railing, glass railing, decorative railing panels, stainless steel cable, and custom designs.
The most common welded aluminum railing profile for a residential home is a vertical or horizontal picket railing system. To maximize the long-range views at coastal homes, glass railing panels, and stainless-steel cable railings are the most popular options.
Florida Building Code requires the use of laminate (when hit with an object, remains intact) glass panels for exterior applications while tempered (when hit with an object, breaks into thousands of small pieces) glass railing panels can be used inside of a home. All rail spacing must be 4” or less and designed to withstand a 200 lb load. The residential railing height is required to be a minimum of 36” in height for both exterior and interior applications.
In addition to being recognized as one of the largest manufacturers of welded aluminum railing systems in the Southeastern US, Mullet’s Aluminum also provides design-assist and installation services.
Our welded aluminum railing systems can be found at many of the finest custom homes and homeowner associations along Florida’s west coast. Each of our aluminum railing systems are custom fabricated and handcrafted to meet the aesthetic, structural, and performance requirements for each home.
Glass railings are available in a variety of different styles and options – that allow unobstructed, long-range views – while also providing both safety and elegance. From contemporary to site specific designs, the team at Mullet’s Aluminum can provide your home or association assistance in selecting a glass railing profile that will compliment your home.
Stainless Steel Cable Railings
Stainless steel cable railings provide an excellent choice for a modern or coastal contemporary style. With minimal obstruction, stainless steel cables add beauty and sophistication to your long-range views.
