Hawaii is a beautiful place that has beach-worthy weather most of the year, but all that heat, sun, and humidity can affect the materials you use for your railing system. You need to choose a material that can stand up to Hawaiian weather. Here are some great material suggestions for your railing installation in Hawaii.
Fluoropolymer Powder Coating
No matter what the railing system is made from, you’ll need a great coating to fight against rust and corrosion. Fluoropolymer powder coatings are perfect for this task. They also prolong the life of the railing. Some of the best properties of this coating is that it’s non-stick, water-resistant, and resistant to electricity.
Aluminum is affordable and light weight, but it’s also strong and long-lasting. It’s naturally rust-resistant and doesn’t heat up to an uncomfortable temperature. With the fluoropolymer powder coating, it’s virtually maintenance-free.
Steel is a great material because it’s stronger than aluminum and will last even longer. There are a few downsides – it’s heavy, prone to rusting, and cost more than aluminum. However, the fluoropolymer powder coating prevents rusting, so you won’t have to worry about that. You can’t fix the heavier weight, but as far as the cost is concerned, it may cost more upfront, but the longevity of steel makes it more cost efficient.
Hawaii is hot and sunny, but your railing system will stand up to it beautifully if you choose the right materials. If you’re considering a railing installation in Hawaii, Structural Systems Inc has the highest quality materials around. Find out more at
