Integrity’s™ unique SmartRail™ System, the envy of the industry, delivers unrivaled strength, beauty and versatility. Greater strength is achieved by combining multiple structural rib supports with up to 20% more aluminum. The rib supports also help eliminate fence rattle by keeping pickets securely in place. Rail sagging is virtually eliminated because interior ribs are not compromised by the top wall picket punch. So SmartRail™ can be punched for maximum panel rackabilty, making fence installation possible even on very steep grades! Factory-notched at each end, SmartRail™ glides into a punched post at just the right distance each time, stopping in position for quick and easy fastening. With all of this attention to structural integrity, you might expect that aesthetics were thrown to the wind. Think again! SmartRail’s™ enhanced exterior detail, with its beautiful curves in all the right places, is stunningly attractive! An engineering feat, the incredibly versatile SmartRail™ System also converts into a concealed fastener system and is the structural genius of our Encore!™ Hand Railing product line!
Integrity™ fences are constructed using one of three sizes (grades) of horizontal rail using the below listed configurations. This ”smart” railing is available for purchase independent of panels in one foot length increments ranging from 1′ to 8′ in the following ways:
- blank (unpunched)
- punched for standard picket spacing
- punched for Extreme™ picket spacing
- punched Xtra-Rack™ for moderate grade slope
- punched Max-Rack™ for severe grade slope
Each of the above options is available in all grades with the size of the rail, the size of the punch, and the spacing between punches determined by the chosen grade. SmartRail™ can also be purchased for any Concealed Fastener System (CFS) such as Don Phillips™ fence panels or Encore!™ hand railing. Additionally, SmartRail™ is available in any of our standard colors and comes with rail ends factory-notched unless otherwise indicated. Note: When ordered punched Extreme™, SmartRail™ can be punched Xtra-Rack™ but not MaxRack™.
SuperRail™ Concealed Fastener System (CFS)
All Integrity Aluminum Products™ fences use stainless steel fasteners to secure the vertical pickets to the horizontal rails on one side of the fence panel. Powder coated to match the fence, this system is the surest way to secure pickets and minimize fence “rattle.” Now, we offer the option to conceal these fasteners and make your fence even more durable! The unique SuperRail™ system doubles the horizontal rails, hiding the fasteners while adding incredible strength. It also closes off the bottom of the horizontal rails, making the panels virtually insect-free! Choose any style in any collection (Resort, Classic, Premier, and Ultimate) and convert it into The SuperRail™ Concealed Fastener System (CFS). CFS panels come factory-assembled. This optional feature cannot be added to previously built panels.
Stationary Rail Mounting Brackets
This is what you need when a fence panel is being attached directly to a structure such as a pillar or building without the use of a punched post. When necessary, though, they can also be attached to posts. These brackets are available in sizes to fit the horizontal SmartRail™ of any Integrity™ fence grade. Stationary rail mounting brackets are used for ”straight-on” attachments. Angled attachments require adjustable rail mounting brackets (see below). Rail mounting brackets are sold separately in any of our standard Integrity™ colors. Please specify color, type and grade when ordering.
Vertically Adjustable Rail Mounting Brackets
For significant (up-and-down) slopes, these vertically adjustable brackets make it easy to mount Integrity™ Xtra-Rack™ or Max-Rack™ fence panels to blank (not pre-punched) fence posts or structures such as pillars or buildings. These brackets are available to fit the railing of any Integrity™ fence grade and sold separately in any of our standard Integrity™ colors. Please specify color and grade when ordering.
Horizontally Adjustable Rail Mounting Brackets
For sharp (left-to-right) 45 degree angled turns, these horizontally adjustable brackets make it easy to mount standard fence panels to Integrity™ fence posts or structures such as pillars or buildings. These brackets are available to fit the railing of any Integrity™ fence grade and sold separately in any of our standard Integrity™ colors. Please specify color and grade when ordering.
Also called a ”rail end notcher”, this tool is used to “notch” the ends of the horizontal SmartRail™ of an Integrity™ fence, allowing it to slide into the narrower punched holes of a post. Since horizontal rails come factory-notched, this tool has limited use for do-it-yourself installation and is most often used by high volume contractors who cut and ”re-notch” horizontal railing on-the-job. Comes standard for residential grade notching, commercial grade conversion kits are sold separately.
Encore!™ Top Rail
Any of the four Encore!™ hand railing top rail design profiles can be purchased separately by-the-foot in one-foot increments up to 10′ long. This top rail is designed as a concealed fastener system (CFS), with the outer profile snapped together with an inverted Premier™ grade horizontal SmartRail™. Sold together as a unit here, either component can be quoted separately upon request. Available in any of our standard colors. Visit our Encore!™ link for more information.
Encore!™ Lower Rail
The lower rail of any Integrity Encore!™ hand railing panel is actually Premier™ grade SuperRail™ Concealed Fastener System (CFS) and can be ordered separately by-the-foot.
Encore!™ Rail Mounting Brackets
Integrity Encore!™ hand railing panels are installed by being attached to blank posts using mounting brackets. These rail mounting brackets are unique and not interchangeable with our fence rail mounting brackets. Based on your requirements, order any of the following types in any of our standard Integrity™ colors:
