Series 500 Aluminum Pipe Railing

Series 500 and 550 Pipe Railing

   
 

Aluminum Non-Welded 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 making it the finest contemporary railing design available on the market today.

Aluminum, Non-Welded, Series 500 Pipe Railing and Series 550 Pipe Picket Railing are especially designed to utilize all of the advantages of aluminum – strength, durability and low maintenance. Highest quality aluminum extrusions and castings are combined with concealed fasteners to create the finest contemporary design available on the market today.

Components are easily assembled – without welding – using mechanical fasteners at intersections and epoxy structural adhesive at splice joints.

Series 500 and 550 Railings are also available as factory assembled units that are made to your exact specifications. This will result in further on-site fabrication
savings. Special curves or pipe radii can easily be fabricated to fit your job.

Posts and top rails are assembled to run in continuous lengths creating a system that is stronger than one with cast tee and cross connections, and it provides a continuously smooth top rail surface. The Series 550 Pickets are factory assembled with a tight drive-in-fit to the top and bottom rails that assures squareness and rigidity. Preassembled sections up to 24 feet can be shipped factory-assembled or knocked down for reassembly.


Series 500 and Series 550
are available in 1-1/2", Schedule 40 pipe size – 1.900" outside diameter with a .145" wall thickness. Standard heights are 32", 36", 42" or 48" with custom heights available upon request.

A practical, sound investment for the budget-minded buyer.

Assembly and Applications

Durable, maintenance-free pipe railing that is quick and easy to install without welding.
Apply epoxy to inside surface of pipe.

Compress splice and join together.
Railing Splices are designed for a tight press fit and must be compressed with a pliers to permit them to slip into the pipe. The areas to be joined should be cleaned thoroughly. Mix 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Epoxy according to manufacturer’s directions. Mix only enough that you can use within 1/2 hour. Apply Epoxy to inside surface of pipe. Compress Splice Sleeve with pliers
then slip into the pipe. Wipe off excess Epoxy after components are properly joined. The areas connected together should be left undisturbed for eight hours – longer in cold weather. See page 85 for 3M™ Scotch-Weld™ Epoxy.
Tee Fittings To attach the tee fitting to the post, a self-tapping, stainless steel, hexagon head screw with lockwasher is positioned through the fitting and threaded into the post. Use of a thread adhesive – i.e., Lido-Weld – is strongly recommended.

Attachment of tee fitting to a vertical post.

A through bolt is used in combination with two 90° tees for a cross connection

When two 90° tees are located directly opposite each other to form a cross, a stainless steel through bolt, lockwasher and locknut are used – SA524 and SA525.

Mounting Options Expansion Joints
Pipe or picket railing can be embedded in concrete and grouted, or mounted on decks and platforms with base flanges, or side-mounted on fascia or stringer by means of fascia flanges.

For continuous spans in excess of 40 feet, expansion joints should be provided. To make an expansion joint, one end of a spliced joint should not have structural adhesive applied so that it is free to move in or out of the pipe. If a joint is provided every 30 feet, the width of the gap should allow 1/8" expansion for each 40°F of expected temperature rise. All pipe railing splices should be made no more than 12" from the nearest post.

Materials
All rails and posts are produced from extruded, 6063-T6 aluminum pipe, 1-1/2" Schedule 40 – 1.900" outside diameter with a .145" wall thickness. Where there are formed elbows, 6063-T4 alloy is used. All railing accessories are cast from ANSI 713 alloy. Fasteners used in the system should be aluminum or stainless steel.

Workmanship
All 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.

Rigidity
Post spacing is not to exceed 6'-0", center-to-center. All posts will be single, unspliced pipe length. Lower rails should be single, unspliced lengths between posts. All top rails shall be continuous whenever possible. All fasteners should be tightened so that the completed railing is rigid and free of play at joints and component attachments
