FBP Brings Enhanced Aluminum Railing Solution to Commercial Market

Code-compliant and pre-assembled, Al¹³ PLUS aluminum railing system to offer commercial building professionals competitive advantage for large-scale projects

Fortress Building Products, one of the strongest brands in the outdoor building products industry, extends a best-in-class railing solution to commercial building professionals with the Al¹³ PLUS aluminum railing system. Al¹³ PLUS, the railing system formerly known as Al¹³, features code-driven enhancements and an innovative bracket system that addresses common challenges on large-scale commercial projects. Al¹³ PLUS joins Fortress Building Products’ current residential aluminum railing offering, Al¹³ HOME™, and is available across its North American dealer network.

Featuring an additional IBC code-compliant railing post, Al¹³ PLUS accommodates 8-foot spans and fascia mount installations. The system’s pre-welded assembly reduces installation time and provides superior performance in strength and safety, while its premium powder coating supports corrosion resistance to ensure lasting style and minimal maintenance.

“Whether due to shifting project timelines, labor costs or inconsistencies in strength and quality, site-welded or component assembled onsite railings can be difficult to estimate and install," said Toby Bostwick, VP of Product and Brand at Fortress Building Products. “Enhancements to Al¹³ PLUS are specifically intended to offer commercial building professionals increased value proposition when competing for larger contracts; code-compliant, pre-assembled panels simplify the ordering process, support a quick install and guarantee consistency and quality across the entire railing system.”
