"I originally built my deck with Cedar because of its natural long-term ability to resist rot. But, the reality is, if you don’t finish your deck every year or so, you are guaranteed to get rotted railings. Trying to enjoy my deck without back-breaking maintenance every year or paying a service thousands of dollars to refinish my deck was very difficult. I decided to go with a composite deck and DSI’s Westbury Rail and Magena Star lighting. My maintenance now includes sweeping the deck and occasionally wiping off bird deposits. Having peace of mind on the stability of the rail and the lifetime warranty on the finish allows me to enjoy my deck that much more. I will 110% recommend Westbury Rail to everyone considering a new or replacement rail project. – Jennifer A.”

Installation

Westbury Railing Installation

Features and Benefits

The Pros tell us that Westbury is the most user friendly, quality made railing system they have ever used. Before there was "Westbury", many hours of research were done to learn what installers liked and disliked about the railings that they had been using, All that information was used in designing every piece and part of the Westbury Railing System. Easier installation means savings not only in time but in labor costs.

Post sizes and options

Our wide selection of available posts in 12 standard colors give you the freedom to design!

Post kits come packaged including the post, flat cap, welded mounting plate, 4 SS leveling bolts, 2 SS shims, our 2 piece flair, screws, and installation instructions all in the box!

Description and ratings for posts used in both 36" and 42" rail systems.

  • 2" Residential - basic deck post
  • 2" Heavy Duty Post - IRC approved - up to 3 stories above grade.
  • 2½" Power Post - IBC and Miami-Dade approved for greater than 3 stories above grade.
  • 3" Post Residential
  • 4" Deco Post - untested backyard post (also available in 8', 9', and 10' posts as structural load bearing posts or sleeves)
  • 4" Smooth - both IRC and IBC approved (also available in 8', 9', and 10' posts as structural load bearing posts or sleeves)
  • 6" Smooth - (also available in 8', 9', and 10' posts as structural load bearing posts or sleeves)
  • 6" Deco - (also available in 8', 9', and 10' posts as structural load bearing posts or sleeves)

post options

All Westbury posts can be used in a "post to post" installation. The 2" residential, 2" Heavy Duty (IRC) and 2½" Power posts are also available for a "crossover" railing method of installation in straight, stair, and a corner crossover kit. (Stair "crossover kit" for 2" residential and HD posts only.)

In order to make your installtion even easier......

Use the Westbury mount template.

Watch as Larry explains how it is used.

 

Mounting the Post to the deck.

The standard method of attching the Westbury post to the deck requires a mounting block of appropriate size to be installed under the decking, directly below where the posts will be located.

NOTE: When installing any post product where water can build up, it is the responsibility of the installer to drill a 1/4" weep hole as close to the bottom of the posts as possible. If there is no weep hole, you may have damage from moisture build up and freezing thus potentially voiding the Powder Coating Warranty.

See Installation video here.

post options2

All posts are applicable with any of the Westbury railing styles. Every aluminum post offered by DSI comes standard with a unique mounting/leveling plate welded to the bottom of the tube. It has 4 SS adjustment bolts (included) that allows the post to be made plumb with up to 7º of adjustment. The bolt presses against the 2 stainless steel shims (included) under the plate to maintain its position. See drawing.

Posts can be ordered with the plate welded at a specific angle for use on an ADA ramp for instance. View image.

Posts can also be ordered without the mounting plate. One reason this would be done is when a fascia mount is needed to save space and depending on your local codes. (Must use the 2" Heavy Duty Post)

Another reason would be to core drill and install the posts (which are made 8" longer) into concrete. 4" and 6" Deco posts can be ordered this way and used as sleeves to be used over an existing 4x4 or 6x6 treated post. Don't forget to order the caps and flairs!

There are 3 options for the post top when installing a post to post rail system. 

  • Our standard offering of a Flat Cap for any size post,
  • the optional Ball Cap (Ball Cap is only available in 2", 2½" or 4" posts),
  • or our Magena Star Low Voltage LED or Solar lights!

Let Larry take you through a detailed installation video for our post systems. Click Here!

Boxed Railing Sections

Each box of railing sections includes the top, bottom, and mid rails (3-rail system) along with the balusters, mounting brackets, flat and pan head self drilling screws and installation instructions. ( Note - If a bottom rail support is required it is in the box as well.) All top rail lengths are 1 inch longer on each end to allow for cross-over installation. Bottom rails are the size you order. i.e. 4' bottom rail would be 48".

If you are using the crossover post installation method the rails can be terminated just short of the wall using the top rail end cap for a clean finish and it also helps to keep out the insects!

Attaching the railing mounting brackets to the posts are made accurate and simple with the Mounting Template that can be used on 2", 2½", 3", or 4" posts. See it here.

A PVC insert is used inside all rail sections that keep the balusters snug thus eliminating and "rattle". Make sure these inserts are equally spaced on both ends before cutting the rail to size. See Drawing

Whether you are doing the Post to Post or the Crossover Method of railing you can add our optional Drink Rail adapter. This allows you to attach a deck board to your top rail and have a place to set your ice tea or a flower pot!

The bottom rail, on all styles (except VertiCable), is 4 sided to eliminate insects from building their nests inside. Sometimes it is the little things that matter!

You can design and order your railing and balusters in different colors to create a unique and beautiful look!

We also make a welded corner section for those who want to eliminate the corner posts or at the top of a stair railing.

We will also create a radius bend in your rail sections to match the curve of your deck! All we need is the measurement between the posts and the offset at the midpoint.

Boxed Stair Rail Sections

Once again you will find everything in the box! Rails, balusters, mounting brackets, flat and pan head self drilling screws, and installation instructions.

Reference the Stair Racking Guide specifically for the style of railing you are installing to be sure your stair run and rise will work with our standard stair sections. If your stairs are outside the normal we can create stair rail sections to work for your angle. You will have to order the "Up/Down" swivel mounting brackets to accommodate your special application. Note that all balusters in both the 2 rail and 3 rail family with the exception of the C80 must be cut at the angle of the stairs for proper fitment into the rail sections.

Mounting Brackets

Westbury "C" Series railing mounting brackets all have covers that hide the fasteners for a nice finished look. Mitre cuts are not required when using the correct connector bracket. The mounting brackets can be attached to the post, column, wall or any solid substrate with proper fasteners.

 Adjustable Size Gates

Digger Specialties Inc. manufacturers adjustable gates in both 36" and 42" in 3 basic sizes, 36", 48" and 60". They are available for all styles except the C20 Montego rail at this time.

A full line of hinges and latches are also available. Click here.

All balusters are welded to the rails for strength. The end posts are mechanically attached so they can be removed. This allows for trimming the rail to the proper width and then simply reattach the end posts.

Learn how easy it is to take our standard size gates and customize their width here.

VertiCable

Verticable

The Westbury VertiCable has quickly become very popular with homeowners and deckers alike for several reasons!

Easy Installation

VertiCable Railing sections are factory assembled. This greatly reduces installation time, which means major savings to you!

Westbury VertiCable railing offers major installation advantages over competitive horizontal cable railing systems.

Bob Shaver, contractor and owner of Baldwin County Fence in South Alabama, noted that

“Westbury VertiCable aluminum railing provides unobstructed views that homeowners prefer while offering installation advantages. Westbury sections are pre-assembled making it much easier and faster to install than horizontal cable railing. The combination of a beautiful product and one that offers ease of installation makes it a homeowner’s and contractor’s best choice.”

Mike Fresch of Deck Masters in Columbus Ohio said,

"VertiCable is beautiful and efficient to install. Because it's less complex than horizontal cable rail installations, a greater number of our carpenters can install it flawlessly. The typical slow down at the end of a horizontal cable job is solved. Our customers love the way it looks!"

VertiCable is not a ladder! Railings are installed to protect your loved ones and guests from falling so why use a railing that literally offers a way to climb over it?

The view!

c80 verticable

All Westbury railings are made to allow the best view of your property and home. VertiCable is only second to the glass Veranda railing in offering you and your guests a unobstructed view. No more standing up to see past your railing!

ScreenRail

ScreenRail

ScreenRail is by far the best screen system to use to protect you and your family from insects! Like the rest of the Westbury family, ScreenRail is available in the same 12 powdercoated colors and has the same Limited Lifetime warranty. 

SR In and Out

ScreenRail consists of 8 basic parts and is field cut to size on the job-site.

  • FrameRail - is used to frame in or outline the existing opening.
  • Posts - are used when the width of an opening needs to be divided into a more manageable width.
  • Railing - Is an integral part of ScreenRail when a railing is need for safety on decks 30" or higher above grade.
  • Kick Panel - Used on screen rooms that are 30" or less above grade and help keep damage from occurring at the bottom of the screen.
  • Mid-Rail - This is used as a horizontal member that will divide the height of the opening to a more manageable size.
  • Doors - Available in 32" x 80", 36" x 80", 48" x 80", and also custom sizes. Hardware available in Slate, Black, and White only.
  • Spline - The .310 size flat spline is used on most standard fiberglass screen fabrics and a smaller .285 flat spline may be needed for a thicker, stiffer screen fabric. Screen Fabric is not available through Digger Specialties and may be sourced through another vendor or dealer.
