Atlantis Rail is a revolutionary approach to conventional railing systems. The long lasting quality and non-corrosiveness of 316 stainless steel allows us to add value and longevity to your railings. This innovative collection of low maintenance railings offers unobstructed views capable of fitting any commercial or residential indoor or outdoor design situations. Enjoy the streamlined look of our five unique RailEasy models with infill options of cable railing, balusters or glass panels. These models mix traditional wood or vinyl with the clean, modern look of stainless steel.
For a completely stainless steel railing system, Atlantis Rail offers the SunRail(TM) line. These modular systems allow for easy installation while achieving a custom look. The SunRail(TM) systems are also offered with infill options of cable railing, balusters or glass panels. The streamlined look of these systems provides the enjoyment of unobstructed views and ventilation without compromising the structural integrity. With the choice between a highly polished or brushed finish, these railings blend nicely with every decor.
The cable infill is attached by patented RailEasy(TM)Tensioners, which secure the wire with simple hand tools. Featuring mechanical swaging capabilities, these tensioners allow installers to cut cable on site, removing the hassle of pre-measuring and the cost of miscalculations. With a slotted base and angling up to 45 degrees, they are ideal for stair applications. Finish any railing project off with Micro Star(TM) LED lighting to illuminate the architectural features. These low voltage lights are small in size to fit almost anywhere and have a life expectancy of 100,000 hours. Brighten up any railing system by placing Micro Stars(TM) underneath the top railing.
