Century Picket Railing System has a variety of essential components that contain a premium powder-coated finish that produces a rust free and highly durable railing system. This includes Posts, Top and Bottom Rails (TBR’s), Pickets, and Accessories.
Posts are the starting point to building a solid railing foundation on your deck. There are five different types of posts: Corner Post, End Post, Line Post, Stair Post, and Maximum Post. The main feature of Century Posts is that there are no exposed or visible welds. A Post Transition Bracket is pre-installed on End, Line, and Corner Posts but can be bought separately to transition from Scenic to Century Top and Bottom Rail systems or to create a double top rail look. Give your railing a consistent look that protects with effortless Baseplate Covers that snap together at the bottom of your posts.
The Top and Bottom Rail Kit and its accessories emphasize the simplicity of this system with its core features.
TBR’s have a continuous pre-punched bottom rail eliminating bottom spacers. Support leg(s) are included, and a top rail characterized by its contemporary round top design that makes it easily graspable, especially on stairs. Heavy-duty construction to hide welds and cuts add a top-of-the-line aesthetic to this product. The Top and Bottom Wall Bracket Kit (sold separately) can be used to attach TBR’s to existing wood posts or walls by placing the wall brackets on each end of the top and bottom rails first then attaching it to the wall or existing post(s). Whether you’re installing straight deck pickets, stair rail pickets, or gates, Century is devised to accommodate and create a system that reduces installation times while maintaining a sleek finish to your deck. See below for components and accessories.
Century Pickets have radius milled edges for a smooth touch and fits completely into the TBR channels. Picket Packs are offered in 4’ and 6′ package of 5/8″ Narrow or 1 ½” Wide Pickets – available for a 36″ & 42” high railing. See below for components and accessories images.
