All over the world, homeowners and construction companies are turning to green building materials in order to address consumer concerns about sustainability. Green Oxen is pleased to announce their contribution to the market with their versatile metal railing.
With roots in the wind power industry, Green Oxen found its place in the market as an eco-friendly and sustainable construction products manufacturer. In the last decade, Green Oxen prioritized the marriage of function and sustainable design, seeking to bring elegance to green construction. As a result, Green Oxen’s engineers launched a series of aluminum railings.
Green Oxen’s railing designs fill a crucial gap in the market. Before aluminum railings, deck rail options were generally limited to either glass, cable, or wood infills. Glass and cable infills were expensive for their function, and often failed to maintain their appearance after installation. Wood was less expensive, but the constant maintenance and threat of warping or cracking left homeowners looking for a new material.
The Green Option
The solution was high quality metal railings. The Epulum aluminum railing balances Green Oxen’s production philosophy as well. The aluminum railing is LEED rated and widely considered an attractive green building material. In addition to this, the aluminum resists common outdoor corrosive elements such as salt, snow, sun and rain so the aluminum looks like new, even years after installation.
Where the Epulum metal railings truly stand out is in their design. The railings comes in five foot units that are pre-assembled for easy installation. Though the five foot sections are standard, Green Oxen does have custom cuts and can design and engineer specialty rail sections to meet the design needs of any space.
Homeowners can choose from several different mounting options, including ground, wall and fascia mounts. For homes with stairs, homeowners may add stair units to compliment their horizontal units for a uniform appearance across the deck.
