Custom deck railings tend to denote higher quality and more status than premade deck railing systems, but that is far from the whole story. Prefab deck railing systems provide many advantages over a custom system and can look just as incredible while also saving time and money on the materials and installation.
VIVA’s expertly designed premade deck railings can be seen in projects across the country in many well known buildings as well as in international projects in the British Virgin Islands, Curacao, and more. Our modular, stainless steel railings are engineered and manufactured in our U.S. headquarters facility in Lewisville, Texas. With our team of over 80 installers, glaziers, project managers, checkers, designers, estimators, and fabricators, we are able to create premade deck railings that meet all building codes and ADA requirements that look amazing.
Benefits of Installing Prefab Deck Railings
Installing a prefab deck railing is often easier than installing a custom deck railing because the railings are modular and the installers have likely installed it, or something similar, before. This can make the installation go faster. For commercial projects on a timeline, faster and easier installation can help keep the project on track.
Prefab deck stair railings, railing panels, and prefab metal deck railings are available in a wide variety of styles and customization options, so even if the system is prefabricated, you can choose from different powder coated colors and glass, metal, or cable infills to create a customized look with the benefits of a premade deck railing system.
Premade Deck Rails in Action
Prefab deck railings can be customized to fit each specific project, to provide just the right amount of safety, security, and style.
The Choctaw Casino in Durant, OK used 4,257 linear feet of railing to create stunning views from the balconies around the building. The CUBETM Glass Railing System provides a contemporary look, and the frosted glass and tinted glass infill offers privacy for those enjoying their view. This project opted to add the iRAILTM LED Linear Illuminated Railings that uses specially designed LEDs for full-length coverage of illumination. Not only does this add safety and visibility, but the balconies look stunning at night.
American Airlines Headquarters
The American Airlines Headquarters in Ft. Worth, TX utilized a prefab stair railing system to create the contemporary spiral staircase that serves multiple levels of a building that is part of the 1.8 million square feet of campus space. Installing over 2,500 linear feet of our SHOETM Glass Railing System allowed them to use a prefab aluminum deck railing to create a stunning interior.
Home2 Suites by Hilton
For an economically conscious prefab aluminum deck railing, the Home2 Suites by Hilton in San Antonio, TX chose the ECO ELLIPSETM Glass Railing System with tempered glass infills. The prefab deck railings allow for optimal line of sight and the sleek, modern look stands in beautiful contrast to the traditional stone of the building.
PGA Headquarters in Frisco, TX used two prefab metal railing systems — CUBETM Cable Metal Railing System and the SHOETM Glass Railing System — plus our FSRTM Free Standing Rail System to create a safe and stylish design for the exterior balconies and interior stairway.
SMU Hughes-Trigg Student Center
At Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX, the Hughes-Trigg Student Center is an 112,000 square foot space that allows students to gather and offers a variety of programs and resources. To create a safe space for the many students that pass through each day, SMU chose to incorporate our SHOETM Glass Railing System with tinted glass to meet their design needs and safety requirements.
Runway at Playa Vista
Located in the heart of Los Angeles, Runway at Playa Vista is a multi-use retail, living, and workspace that uses a variety of materials, including natural wood, plaster, metal and glass, to create a multi-faceted design suited to its multitude of uses. The colored glass infill included in the SOLOTM Glass Railing System accents surrounding neutral colors and contributes to the lively vibes.
In addition to offering prefab deck railings, we also offer custom solutions for spaces that have unique needs and design requirements.
Virgin Hotels Dallas
At the Virgin Hotel in Dallas, TX, the curved corner contrasts the perforated aluminum diamond-shaped panels.
