Lets Get Started!

Impression Rail Express has three major components, Posts that anchor the railing to the surface or structure, Top Rail Profile which is the finishing look of the railing, and Rail Infill which is the main structure of the railing and attaches to the posts.

First: decide which top rail profile will be best suited for your railing. Top rails are available in three select styles and three colors.

Classic Profile Top Rail Impression Express is a highly asthetic curved top rail that looks great at a lower price than standard impession rail


Classic Top Rail closely resembles the original Impression Rail, and is a wonderfully pleasing profile

Universal top rail or bottom rail standard is a price point cheaper priced top rail for impression express and is the profile included in rail infill kits


Universal Rails are minimalistic in profile and have a more condensed look, and are less expensive than the other two options. Use this profile to match bottom rail of Rail Kits.

Second: choose your infill type. The aluminum baluster rail infill in Impression Express is much different than other collections. With Impression Rail Express the balusters are punched into a frame that is . Impression top rail is not included and must be purchased separately.
