New design option creates instant update for outdoor living spaces

Kingston with black aluminum balusters

(Malvern, Pa.) – Make boring outdoor living spaces a thing of the past with a new railing baluster option from CertainTeed, North America’s leading brand of building products. The new aluminum balusters are now available for EverNew® Kingston and Oxford vinyl railing systems.

“Adding dark balusters to any railing gives a dramatic look to a deck or patio area,” said Matt Rapposelli, Outdoor Living product manager for CertainTeed. “The upgrade complements the EverNew railing product family and provides even more mix-and-match options for that personal touch homeowners look for in their outdoor living spaces.”

The contemporary, ¾-inch round aluminum baluster infill option stands out in a matte black, powder-coated finish and is available to accompany all six EverNew rail colors – white, almond, clay, warm spice, rustic rose and black – in 3-foot and 3.5-foot tall, flat or stair applications and either 6-foot or 8-foot lengths. The rails are routed to accept the ¾-inch round baluster, and the bottom rails feature pre-installed foam tape to prevent rattling. The new baluster is offered in rail and baluster packs and gate kits.

CertainTeed’s EverNew railing system offers the ultimate in safety and performance. With a wide variety of styles and colors, including popular bold and dark colors, endless design combinations are possible. Plus, EverNew vinyl and composite railings can be installed with any decking material. Vinyl railings are backed by a lifetime limited warranty with 5-year SureStart™ parts and labor protection, and composite railings are backed by a 25-year limited warranty with 2-year SureStart parts and labor protection.
