It's easiest to load the railings onto the deck or in the area where they will be installed.
All dimensions on our Shop Drawings note the centerline of the railings & posts. Use (a marker or chalk line) chalk to mark locations.
Always begin with securing the Flange & Core Mountings as indicated to ensure rigid and proper installation of the railings.
Use ratcheted "come-along" straps to hold the adjoining sections in place without over-tightening. If necessary use a clear plastic or urethane hammer to assist in getting flush joints so you don't risk marking the railing surface.
Continue with each section and don't forget to check for plumb & level before securing.
Final cleanup is easy, just remember to use a non-abrasive cleaner (no bleach) to
avoid damaging or dulling the surface finish on the railings.
