Balau Mahogany offers incredible strength and exotic beauty to any railing project at a more affordable price than other hardwoods. This top rail, also called a cap rail, is nearly half the thickness of typical wood railings, allowing you to keep your view even more open. In order to maintain structural integrity, this top rail option should be supported underneath by our POST-TO-POST aluminum rail (sold separately), which discretely runs between posts and matches our other aluminum railing components.

Technical Information:
  1. Material: Balau Mahogany, aka Batu Mahogany
  2. Actual Dimensions: 1in x 3.5in
  3. Attaches directly to the top of any post
  4. 100% natural and organic, with no preservatives or additives
  5. Class A Flame Spread Rating (same as Concrete and steel)
  6. Kiln dried, clear grade boards for consistent appearance and application
  7. Sustainably harvested from well-managed forests
  8. Lacey Act and SVLK compliant
Balau is one of five main groupings for Meranti (also called Lauan) wood. The other four are called Light Red Meranti, Dark Red Meranti, White Meranti, and Yellow Meranti. These woods are members of the Shorea genus and are very popular in southeast Asia. Each group offers different characteristics and benefits.

Product Benefits:
  1. Dense cell structure deters rot, decay, insects, and mold
  2. Reliably durable, strong, long-lasting, and easy to maintain, even in the most demanding applications
  3. Oil finish is advisable for color preservation, but is not required; Balau weathers to a silver patina when left unprotected
  4. Naturally water-resistant
Combine this lovely top rail with Balau or Aluminum posts.

NOTE: Requires Aluminum Post-to-Post support due to thinness; sold separately.
