Railcraft International Inc.
Earlier this past summer as you probably know, I traveled to Vancouver Canada to inspect an aluminum railing manufacturing plant. One of my high rise projects has already been using the superb product for lanai railing and I wanted to see first-hand how the railings were made and coated. And I wanted to share this experience with CMI readers.
There are 2 lines in place, that being the Production line and the other the Paint line.
In the Production line many hours go into the cut and assembly, welding pickets and pipe bending. The production line was efficient down to the buffing stage. After that, the quality control department thoroughly inspects and either passes or rejects each piece. Any defects found result in the entire piece being thrown in the recycle bin. All sections that pass quality control inspections are then hung on racks for several rinse cycles, then the railing sections are moved to the dry off oven.
