Product Detail

Overview

Composite railing system made from approximately 60% recycled hardwood sawdust and 40% virgin/recycled polypropylene with Microban treatment. Suitable for outdoor residential and commercial applications.

 

 

 

 

 

 

RapidRail is made from the same constituents as CorrectDeck (recycled hardwood fibre (sawdust) and virgin and reclaimed polypropylene). Product is treated with Microban, a widely used antibacterial agent that prevents the growth of microbes such as bacteria, mold and mildew.The active ingredient of Microban is Triclosan - see Issues of Concern.

Product is made from polypropylene creating a stronger, stiffer and lighter product than other composite wood products. As such it can experience higher temperatures with minimal expansion and contraction. Product carries a 25 year limited warranty, reflecting its good durability properties.

The product's composition does not absorb moisture, therefore water sealers are not required. Product also exhibits good weathering resistance, avoiding the need for surface treatments in many exterior applications. Railing has a low-lustre finish that provides to complement composite decking.
