Backyard Rail

Hello,

I am looking to get a rail whelded for my backyard park. I was wondering what type of steel wouldn't rust or scratch my board.

Thanks

You need to ask the welder/metal worker to grind it down to a fine finish and tell them you'll leave it outside in the elements. They'll put a protective layer on it to prevent rust.

Any steel will work, just make sure you tell them what it'll be used for. If you are doing this yourself, look up the strength of the gauge you want to use and make sure you are taking into account more than just weight. The force of loading and unloading, etc.

Best of luck

nice. We set up a 2x4 rail. Was considering either:

A.) Clamping a PVC to the top, making it removable

or

B.) Putting a type of aluminum tape to coat the top of the 2x4. very malleable and soft, but creates a nice slick surface.

not sure which one we are gonna do...
