Choosing the Incorrect Railing for your Seaside Deck Can be Disastrous!
When you live by the ocean, a unique set of challenges presents itself – harsh weather, constant humidity, and worst of all, saltwater. All these corrosive effects can wreak havoc on your home's outdoor elements, especially your deck. One part that is vulnerable to the ravages of coastal living is the deck railing. Subjected to the ocean's relentless salt and moisture, it's not unusual for deck railings to corrode and lose their luster. But worry no more, Key-Link's railings with their Coastal Upgrade Finish provides layers of protection, making it the ultimate ocean deck railing solution for you.
Not all Powder Coatings are Made Equal
The AAMA 2605 is a high-performance exterior specification standard for organic coatings on aluminum extrusions and panels, known for its exceptional resistance to weathering, chalking, fading, and erosion, making it an excellent choice for finishes in coastal environments with stringent demands. This coating's superior properties offer an additional layer of protection in saltwater conditions, a feat that its counterpart, the standard AAMA 2604 finish, can't match. The 2605 coating is designed to resist and withstand the harsh, corrosive effects of the seaside environment, maintaining the aesthetic and structural integrity of your rails. When this high-performance coating is paired with an epoxy primer, the resulting Coastal Upgrade Finish creates a near impenetrable barrier, offering the ultimate protection for seaside railings. Experience the peace of mind that comes with knowing your beach house's modern railings are safeguarded against the corrosive seaside elements with Key-Link's Coastal Upgrade Finish.
Key-Link's Multi-Step Process
The Coastal Upgrade offers a unique powder-coating process involving a primer coating followed by a 2605 standard coating. Key-Link takes the aluminum through a meticulous, multi-step process to ensure the highest-quality coating. The process begins with cleaning and drying the items, followed by coating and curing with an epoxy coating, inside and out. The process is then repeated using the AAMA 2605 powder coating. Finally, their quality control technicians verify that the products meet our stringent standards before they are shipped.
Available Railing Profiles: Cable Railing and Beyond
Horizontal Cable Railings with marine grade stainless steel cables, particularly from Key-Link's American and Chesapeake Series, are a popular choice for those living in saltwater conditions. Both these series are available with the innovative Coastal Finish, making them exceptionally equipped to combat the corrosive impact of a coastal environment. With this finish, the resilience of the already durable material is heightened, and their life span is vastly extended — a boon for anyone residing close to the sea. But, even if a horizontal cable railing system doesn't quite align with your taste, don't fret. The Coastal Finish from Key-Link is available for all of their railing profiles, meaning there's available for anyone.
Making A Smart Investment
For those searching for a modern yet corrosion-resistant railing system, Key-Link's Coastal Upgrade package is an ideal choice. The powder coating process significantly reduces wear and tear from UV radiation and saltwater corrosion, ensuring the railings perform optimally for many years to come. What's more, Key-Link provides a 25-year limited warranty on their railing systems, meaning they stand behind their products with confidence and conviction.
At the end of the day, when you invest in a Key-Link Coastal Upgrade package for your beach house or coastal property, you're making a wise decision. You'll enjoy the cutting-edge design of modern railings, with the added peace of mind that comes from knowing you have invested in quality materials and craftsmanship.
Metal Railings vs Cellular PVC, Vinyl & Composite Railings
When it comes to choosing the best railing material for a coastal finish, metal railings, particularly those from Key-Link the coastal upgrade, hold a distinct advantage over composite, vinyl, and cellular PVC railings. One of the key benefits lies in their size. Metal railings, with their slim profiles, offer a minimalist aesthetic that maximizes your scenic views. This is especially valuable in coastal areas where unobstructed, panoramic views of the sea are a prized feature.
Moreover, compared to bulkier composite or vinyl railings, metal railings with a coastal finish maintain their strength and stability without compromising on style. Unlike PVC railings, they will not expand or contract due to temperature fluctuations. This means your railings will have a longer lifespan and require less maintenance. So, for the perfect blend of functionality and aesthetics, metal railings with a coastal finish are the superior choice.
