Post kits and post sleeves are a requirement for DecKorators CXT and ALX railings. ALX railing post kits are available and is made of a heavy-gauge aluminum powder coated finish. This kit contains a narrow 2.5" post that anchors directly to the structure of the deck. Its smaller profile works well for smaller spaces if a slimmer railing profile is preferred.
CXT and ALX post sleeves are also available to slide over any traditional 4x4 post. If you have a pressure treated or cedar lumber post, these post sleeves will work to match the corresponding railing you use. ALX post sleeves come with the post sleeve only. CXT post sleeve kits come with a post sleeve and one post skirt that secures at the bottom of the post.
