Westbury by Digger Specialties Inc.

There are many reasons why the Westbury family of railings are experiencing a steady growth among homeowners, deckers, contractors, builders, and architects.

Is it?:

  1. That Westbury has 18 styles of railings?
  2. The 12 certified powder-coated colors in smooth or textured colors?
  3. A Custom Color option?
  4. The Limited Lifetime Warranty?
  5. The 5 yr. fade warranty that assures your railing will look fantastic for years to come?
  6. The unobstructed view that people love?
  7. The ease of installation?
  8. That Westbury has gates!
  9. Matching aluminum columns and posts that can be used for wraps and sleeves.
  10. Screenrail for those who want to keep out those pesky insects.
  11. Matching low voltage LED or solar lighting?
  12. Matching ADA Continuous Handrail?
  13. All the above
    The answer is M, all of the above. The Westbury Railing System gives designers, specifiers, architects, and especially the homeowner the freedom to create the outdoor living area of their dreams.

Railing Installation


"I will 110% recommend Westbury Rail to everyone considering a new or replacement rail project.”
Jennifer A.

Westbury Railing Installation Features and Benefits
The Pros tell us that Westbury is the most user friendly, quality railing system they have ever used.
Before there was Westbury, many hours of research were done to learn what installers liked and disliked about the railings that they had been using, All that information was used in designing every piece and part of the Westbury Railing System.

Posts
Post Selection
Our wide selection of available posts in 12 standard colors give you the freedom to design! Post kits are packaged with the post, cap, 4 leveling bolts, 2 SS shims, our 2 piece flair, screws and installation instructions in the box!

Description and ratings for posts used in both 36" and 42" rail systems.

2" Residential - basic deck post
2" Heavy Duty Post - IRC approved - up to 3 stories above grade.
2½" Power Post - IBC and Miami Dade approved for greater than 3 stories above grade.
3" Post Residential
4" Deco Post - untested backyard post (also available in 8', 9', and 10' posts as structural load bearing posts or sleeves)
4" Smooth - both IRC and IBC approved (also available in 8', 9', and 10' posts as structural load bearing posts or sleeves)
6" Smooth - (also available in 8', 9', and 10' posts as structural load bearing posts or sleeves)
6" Deco - (also available in 8', 9', and 10' posts as structural load bearing posts or sleeves)

All Westbury posts can be used in a "post to post" installation.

The 2" and 2½" posts are also available for a "crossover" railing method of installation in straight, stair, and a corner crossover kit. (Stair "crossover kit" for 2" posts only.)

All posts are applicable with all of the Westbury railing styles.

Every aluminum post offered by DSI comes standard with a unique mounting plate welded to the bottom of the tube, has 4 SS adjustment bolts (included) that allows the post to be made plumb with up to 7º of adjustment. The bolt presses against the 2 stainless steel shims (included) under the plate to maintain its position. See drawing.

Posts can be ordered with the plate welded at a specific angle for use on an ADA ramp for instance.

Posts can also be ordered without the mounting plate.

One reason this would be done is when a fascia mount is needed to save space depending on your local codes. (Must use the 2" Heavy Duty Post)
Another reason would be to core drill and install the posts (which are made 8" longer) into concrete.
4" and 6" Deco posts can be ordered this way and used as sleeves to be used over an existing 4x4 or 6x6 treated post. Don't forget to order the caps and flairs!
There are 3 options for the post top. Our standard offering of a Flat Cap for any size post, the optional Ball Cap (Ball Cap is only available in 2", 2½" or 4" posts), or our Magena Star Low Voltage LED or Solar lights!

Let Larry take you through a detailed installation video for our post systems. Click Here!

Boxed Railing Sections
Each box of railing sections includes the top, bottom, and mid rails (3-rail system) along with the balusters, mounting brackets, flat and pan head self drilling screws and installation instructions. ( Note - If a bottom rail support is required it is in the box as well.)

Attaching the railing mounting brackets to the posts are made accurate and simple with the Mounting Template that can be used on 2", 2½", 3", or 4" posts. Instructions

A PVC insert is used inside all rail sections that keep the balusters snug thus eliminating and "rattle". Make sure these inserts are equally spaced on both ends before cutting the rail to size. See Drawing

If you are using the crossover post installation method the rails can be terminated just short of the wall using the top rail end cap for a clean finish and it also helps to keep out the insects!

Whether you are doing the Post to Post or the Crossover Method of railing you can add our optional Drink Rail adapter. This allows you to attach a deck board to your top rail and have a place to set your ice tea or a flower pot!

The bottom rail, on all styles, is 4 sided to eliminate insects from building their homes inside. Sometimes it is the little things that matter.

You can design and order your railing and balusters in different colors to create a unique and beautiful look!

We also make a welded corner section for those who want to eliminate the corner posts or at the top of a stair railing.

We will also create a radius bend in your rail sections to match the curve of your deck! All we need is the measurement between the posts and the offset at the midpoint.

Boxed Stair Rail Sections
Once again you will find everything in the box! Rails, balusters, mounting brackets, flat and pan head self drilling screws, and installation instructions. Reference the Stair Racking Guides to be sure your stair run and rise will work with our standard stair sections. If your stairs are outside the normal we can create stair rail sections to work for your angle. You will have to order the "Up/Down" swivel mounting brackets to accommodate your special application.

Note that all balusters in both the 2 rail and 3 rail family with the exception of the C80 must be cut at the angle of the stairs for proper fitment into the rail sections.

Mounting Brackets
Westbury "C" Series railing mounting brackets all have covers that hide the fasteners for a nice finished look. Mitre cuts are not required when using the correct connector bracket. The mounting brackets can be attached to the post, column, wall or any solid substrate with proper fasteners.

Adjustable Size Gates
Digger Specialties Inc. manufacturers adjustable gates in 3 basic sizes (36", 48" and 60") for our Tuscany C20, Riviera C30 Series, and the Verticable C80.

Choose between a 36" or 48" for the Veranda C70 railing. Gates are not available for the C20 Montego rail at this time.

All balusters are welded to the rails for strength and the end posts are mechanically attached so they can be removed. This allows for trimming the rail to the proper width and then simply reattach the end posts. Learn how easy it is to take our standard size gates and customize their width here.


VertiCable


The Westbury VertiCable has quickly become very popular with homeowners and deckers alike for several reasons!
Easy Installation
VeriCable Railing sections are factory assembled. This greatly reduces installation time, which means major savings to you!
VertiCable is not a ladder! Railings are installed to protect your loved ones and guests from falling so why use a railing that literally offers a way to climb over it?
The view! All Westbury railings are made to allow the best view of your property and home. VertiCable is only second to the glass Veranda railing in offering you and your guests a unobstructed view. No more standing up to see past your railing!


ScreenRail


ScreenRail is by far the best screen system to use to protect you and your family from insects! Like the rest of the Westbury family, ScreenRail is available in the same 12 powdercoated colors and has the same Limited Lifetime warranty.
It consists of 8 basic parts and is field cut to size on the jobsite.
Framerail - is used to frame in or outline the existing opening.
Posts - are used when the width of an opening needs to be divided into a more managable width.
Railing - Is an intergral part of ScreenRail when a railing is need for safety on decks 30" or higher above grade.
Kick Panel - Used on screen rooms that are 30" or less above grade and help keep damage from occuring at the bottom of the screen.
Mid-Rail - This is used as a horizontal member that will divide the height of the opening to a more managable size.
Doors - Available in 32" x 80", 36" x 80", 48" x 80", and also custom sizes. Hardware available in Slate, Black, and White only.
Spline - The .310 size flat spline is used on most standard fiberglass screen fabrics and a smaller .285 flat spline maybe needed for a thicker, stiffer type screen fabric.
Screen Fabric is not available through Digger Specialties and may be sourced through another vendor or dealer.
