PP-PRODUCT PRESENTATION
The SELECT system utilizes the strength and flexibility of the SELECT panels from Metalco® . The SELECT System enables us to offer an affordable modular system, which is practical, durable and sturdy. This unique railing system provides a wide variety of design solutions. It can be brightly colored and configured to be a design feature or it can blend inconspicuously with the surroundings.

The SELECT panels are ideally suited for retrofitting existing railing systems, which are not in compliance with current building codes.

SELECT Railing System is based on METALCO’s infill panels. These panels are available as perforated, extruded and woven mesh panels.

Railing System
The SELECT Railing System can span between post supports or be mounted onto structurally suitable elements. An average post spacing of 3’-6” to 4’-0” for stairs and 3’-6” to 4’-6” for straight balcony railings is recommended. The system can span up to 12’ if optional available horizontal supports are used. See our CAD details for additional information. Please contact Metalco® for engineering and design assistance when preparing detail solutions.
Handrails
For railing types we offer optional these handrail types: Channel, square and rectangular tubes. Handrails may be finished to match or contrast with the supports and panels. Wood and other handrail materials can also be specified and supplied by Metalco®.
