What is an Interior Railing System?
An interior railing system includes a top rail, infill, and posts that are used to decorate interiors. A railing system interior uses cable, glass panels, or metal bars as infill to create a distinct point of interest. Interior stainless steel railing systems are an upscale addition to any building project for a high-end, luxury market. When choosing an interior railing, one should consider things like the latest interior railing designs and interior railing styles, interior railing options offered by manufacturers, possible materials for interior railing posts, interior railing kits, interior railing height codes, and how to install an interior railing. AGS Stainless manufactures contemporary interior railing systems for lofts, balconies, staircases, and more.

Best Interior Stair Railing Materials
Interior wood railing systems are very difficult to disassemble after an installation has been made. If you think that you or a homeowner might want to make future modifications, then a stainless steel interior railing kit is an excellent alternative to traditional interior railing balusters. A hybrid of interior stair railing posts and bars made of stainless steel with a wood top rail might be better than interior metal stair railing kits if you want the beauty and flexibility of stainless steel components along with the charm of a natural wood railing interior.
Interior stone railings are fairly rare in many parts of the world unless you live in a castle. A major problem with stone railings is that they are very difficult to install. People didn’t exactly have modern manufacturing technology like computer-aided design (CAD), 3-D rendering, and laser cutting in medieval times, so they had to make do with what was available.
Modern Manufacturing Technology for Interior Railing Systems
Interior wrought iron railings with a black powder coating are becoming much more widespread. However, using a powder coating on stainless steel is even better because it means that your interior stair railing will be much more resistant to corrosion. Depending on the humidity of your wrought iron railing interior, moisture in the air could have the potential to cause rust. That is why AGS Stainless recommends using black powder coated stainless steel for interior railing projects.
Interior metal stair railings that are made from stainless steel will outlast softer interior aluminum railings that can get dented and scratched up over time. Aluminum tends to be maintenance-free if the railings are just for show and you don’t touch them. Stainless steel railing systems will definitely outlast aluminum interior railing systems if people are constantly climbing stairs and actually grabbing and banging onto the railings. In addition, stainless steel is much more functional since periodic maintenance can make it look brand-new.
How to Care for Your Stainless Steel Rail
Interior glass railing systems usually feature glass panels that are held by clamps or a stainless steel frame. You might be wondering why interior glass railings aren’t entirely made out of glass. Glass is a very fragile material, so an interior glass railing usually needs to be reinforced by a stronger material like wood or metal. A stainless steel structure is the most common when displaying panels for a glass railing interior. AGS Stainless custom-designs several interior glass railing kits for an easy DIY (Do-It-Yourself) installation.
Stainless steel metal bar stair railings like Olympus combine sleek design with cutting-edge fabrication processes. An interior staircase railing made of marine grade A316 stainless steel is beautiful enough to complement your design and durable enough to last. Stainless steel railing kits by AGS Stainless don’t require field modifications like cutting or welding. On the other hand, wood stair railing kits and wrought iron railing kits might require more work on-site.
Prefabrication Simplifies DIY Installation for Interior Stair Railing Systems
Installing an interior stair railing has never been easier since AGS Stainless provides step-by-step instructions and custom interior staircase railing kits for even the most ambitious DIY projects. Custom interior railing kits are custom-designed and prefabricated to keep your interior stair railing installation simple.

Skilled Labor Shortage Means That a DIY Interior Railing Installation Might Be Necessary
