Made of Alodine Coated Aircraft Grade Aluminum
We found the best material for balusters is aluminum. But not just any aluminum, it had to be the best aluminum available. We chose 6061-T6 grade which is use extensively in the aircraft and aerospace industry where its weight to strength ratio is phenomenal. Remember the condensation that forms inside? Well condensation means rust or oxidation. Rusting means the baluster is being eaten from the inside out and you will never know it is happening. Well we know it is happening and to make sure our balusters are as bullet-proof as we can make them, each and every baluster is dipped into Alodine. Alodine is used to coat not only the outside but more importantly the inside surface of the baluster. This coating provides superior paint adhesion together with corrosion resistance giving the longevity your need for outdoor environments.
Stronger, Tougher, Best In Class
Our balusters have a larger diameter than those made in foreign countries. Not only are our balusters bigger but they are thicker as well providing strength competitors dream about but can’t afford to offer.
Thicker, More Durable Powder Coating
At DEKOR™ we cut no corners in making baluster products. We use the finest materials, all welding is done in-house, and we own the powder coating company. Our coatings are thicker than anything you will find elsewhere. Our coatings measure 4-7 mils in thickness, competitors are 2-3 mils. That’s right our balusters have twice the powder coating thickness of that of our competitors. Our coatings have been specifically formulated for UV protection allowing us have the industry leading warranty for performance year after year.
Available in 8 great powder coat finishes, designed to coordinate with wood or composite building materials.
