Systems

Ordinary installation.
Extraordinary integration

When it comes to Solar Railing, installation is as straightforward as it is innovative. From a simple post and cap to a base shoe system, and with wiring ingeniously concealed in the post or handrail— installation is identical to typical railing systems for a not-so-typical railing.
