Series 500 & 550 (Aluminum Pipe Railing)

Aluminum non-welded series 500 pipe railing is especially designed to utilize all the advantages of aluminum where strength, durability and no-paint maintenance is a key factor. Highest quality aluminum extrusions and castings are used with concealed fasteners, offering a smooth finish, and making it the finest contemporary design available on the market today.Durable, maintenance-free pipe railing is quick and asy to install without welding.

Factory assembled railings are made to your exact specifications resulting in considerable on-site fabrications saving. Pipe rail assemblies up to 24 feet can be shipped factory assembled and/or knocked down for reassembly.

Non-welded pipe railing can be embedded in concrete and grouted, mounted on decks and platforms with base flanges, or side-mounted on fascia or stringer by means of fascia flanges.

When installing, pipe cuts should be square and accurate for minimum joint-gap. Cuts should be clean and free of chamfer from deburring, nicks and burrs. Holes should be drilled the proper size for a tight, flush fit of rivets and screws. all posts grouted in concrete must have one 1/4″ diameter weep hole – 1/2″ above post collar – in the plane of the rail.

Post spacing is contingent upon code requirements. All posts should be unspliced, single pipe length. Lower rails should be a single unspliced length between posts. All top rails should be continuous whenever possible. All fasteners should be tightened so that the completed railing is rigid and completely free of play at joints and component attachments.

Components are easily assembled – without welding – by mechanical fasteners at intersections and by epoxy structural adhesive at splice joints. A wide range of fittings with continuous posts and rails will fit practically any application the fittings and pipe may be purchased as components for field assembly.

Special curves or pipe radii can easily be fabricated to fit your job. Pipe-picket railing utilize 3/4″ round pickets located on 6″ or 4-1/2″ centers.

All posts and rails are formed from extruded 6063-T6 aluminum of 1-1/2″ schedule 40 pipe size, except for formed elbows which are extruded from 6063-T4 is used. All railing accessories are cast from 713 alloy. All fasteners used in the system are aluminum or stainless steel.

Railings are available in the following finishes: Mill finish, satin anodized, black, bronze, green, almond, brown, sandstone, tan, white and light bronze.

Delivery time will vary depending on each job’s requirements. Contact Wagner for availability and pricing.

Wagnerail

Wagnerail™ cast ball fittings for use with aluminum pipe – an all aluminum level or ramp railing system cast of aluminum slip-on fittings for 1-1/2″ schedule 40 aluminum pipe. They are a heavy cast aluminum fittings with a tumbled finish used with aluminum pipe – the strength of welding railing in a mechanical no-weld system.

Wagnerail™ is a simple, slip-together, mechanical railing system requiring no welding for fabrication. Concealed set screws securely lock rails and fitting where required. The high-strength, yet lightweight, mechanical system meets all accepted engineering practices and complies with OSHA regulation when properly specified and assembled.

A classic ball style railing fittings were very popular during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Over the years they have gone out of use but are still commonly seen along the ocean and in older facilities. In recent years Wagner has received request for these parts as many municipalities are restoring some of there existing installations or for new construction in historic renovations. Wagner is pleased to re-introduce these parts in cast aluminum for use with 1-1/2″ aluminum pipe.
