Summit Aluminum Railing Panel 42″ x 96″
Gilpin Summit aluminum railing panel 42 inches high by 96 inches wide. Railing panels are powder coated which will prevent peeling and cracking. Summit railings come in fully assembled pre-cut panel heights and widths. The installed height of this Summit railing panel is 39 inches. This leaves 3 inches below the bottom horizontal rail and the hard surface you are mounting to. The 96 inch wide railing panels have 2 pickets near the center that extend past the bottom rail. These pickets brace the panel and a decorative spindle flange can be used to hold them in place. Summit railing comes with a breadloaf style top rail. Breadloaf rails provide more comfort on your hands then a square or flat shaped top rail. Summit railing is made in the USA and has a limited lifetime warranty. Summit railing is the highest grade aluminum railing that the brand Gilpin manufacturers.
A 96 inch wide railing panel is best used for near to the ground applications. This railing should not be used for off the ground heights of more than a few feet. For safety reasons, it’s better to use shorter railing widths for areas that are higher up. The railing will meet most railing codes, but check your local building codes prior to installation.
The vertical spindles or pickets are attached with a stainless steel rivet, that is covered by aluminum rivet covers. Rivet covers are included with the railing panel and result in a cleaner look. The rivets allow the railing panel to rack at an angle for stairs when using angle brackets. The railing panels will remain in a straight position when using the post or wall mount brackets. Summit aluminum railing panels are commonly used on decks, patios, and balconies and for residential or commercial applications.
Shipping a 96 Inch Wide Railing Panel
Due to the size of this railing panel, it can not be shipped by itself or individually. You will have to order more than 3 panels as shipping less increases the possibility of shipping damage. Because these railing panels are oversize, the shipping cost is higher as well.

Summit Railing Installation
You can attach Summit railing to posts in three different ways. For a straight rail, use either the installation spindle or a wall mount bracket. The installation spindle will look like the other vertical pickets. Installation spindles have a screw hole for installing on the top and bottom of the picket. Wall brackets and angle brackets fit on the end of the horizontal rails and attach to a wall or post. They have two screw holes on each side of the bracket for added strength. You may want to add Decorative Spindle Flanges to secure the two bottom extended pickets to the flat surface. Trim down the railing panel with a hacksaw or reciprocating saw if you need shorter lengths.
