Composite Deck and Topless Rail

Posted by on Feb 17, 2012 in Design, Railings | No Comments

Evolution of a “Composite” floor board deck with Topless Rail on a specially detailed pony wall.

Client did not want duck boards which would be our choice but opted for full width sleepers.  As such it became more critical with our choice of materials for structural support for floor boards.

The newly installed torch-on membrane is inherently uneven and the deck had a crown for proper water dispersion.  As such our carpenters were challenged to create a perfectly level deck.

The 20″ high pony wall was sheeted with 1/2″ plywood and standard stud placement requiring the wall to be modified for installation of face mounted topless glass posts.

The wall was further modified to CMHC “Best Practices Guide” or better for proper water dispersion.

Privacy for one side was required and to create a water like look to those elements, the glass is acid etched and posts are a light gray.
