Trex Aluminum Gates
To protect you and your loved ones, we developed an aluminum gate that looks attractive with both our wood-composite Transcend and aluminum Reveal railing lines. This product will keep children and pets safely inside your deck area and help minimize falls down stairways.
We opted to make these gates in the same heavy-duty powder-coated material as Reveal. Unlike composite gates, which can be hard to attach to railing and sag over time, aluminum gates are easy to install, possess exceptional strength, retain their color and resist corrosion. Aluminum gates also are low maintenance, washing clean with just soap and water. The gates can be customized to fit nearly any opening up to 48 inches wide.
These gates are available in three traditional colors – Charcoal Black, Bronze and Classic White – with a choice of square or round balusters. As aluminum balusters became a more popular choice with homeowners to complement composite Transcend top and bottom rails, this aluminum gate offers a nice visual tie-in.
For projects requiring ADA-compliance, Trex’s new aluminum handrail system not only meets all legal dimensional requirements, but also provides more strength and durability than our old vinyl system. Available in the same three colors as our gates, the heavy-duty aluminum rails feature a high-quality powder-coated finish that delivers better fade resistance than other materials.
Featuring a full complement of components to accommodate easy installation, handrail wall mounts and wall returns include fasteners for both wood post and aluminum post installations. Aluminum collars hide railing seams for a smooth transition between components, and aluminum end caps conceal open rail ends.
We’re proud to offer the industry’s most robust selection of wood-alternative decking and railing products, and these new offerings reflect our commitment to being a comprehensive resource for our customers by delivering innovative outdoor living solutions for every design taste, lifestyle and need.
