Aluminum Rail Cap
Pricing is subject to change. In-store pricing may vary from online pricing.
6061-T6 Aluminum rail caps are extruded for seamless precision sizing throughout the full lengthof the material. The 3/4" x 3/4" square concaved base allows the round rail caps to be installed on square tubing or bar stock providing a sturdy support. Made from a lightweight material with a smooth surface, it is heat treatable, non-magnetic, and resistant to stress cracking. These aluminum rail caps are an excellent candiate for both interrior and exterrior stair and safety railling applications.
Most commonly used. High strength & good welding. Not good formability - If formed, needs a very gradual radius. Good machinability
