Balustrade Railings 5000 and 7000 Series. Do you have any material performance data on the Vinyl? Are the posts all sleeved for use over wood posts or are some internally reinforced with aluminum extrusion? What is the maximum radius available for your Rail sections? Are the vinyl balusters internally reinforced with aluminum? What is the aluminum extrusion alloy? I don't see any information for base mounting systems and trim.
Series 200: The top and bottom rails appear to be reinforced with aluminum extrusions. Do you have any material performance data on the Vinyl?
