TREX TRANSCEND RAILING

NOTES:

>> TREX TRANCEND RAILINGS ARE DESIGNED TO BE INSTALLED OVER THE DECKING FRAME OR INSIDE OF RIM JOIST, NOTCHING OF PRESSURE-TREATED POSTS OR POST INSTALLED ON THE OUTSIDE OF RIM JOISTS ARE NOT ALLOWED.

>> All Trex Transcend Railing lengths are manufactured ON CENTER dimensions (spanning from center of each post): 67-5/8" for 6' on center, and 92-5/8" for 8' on center. Note that railings are designed to be slightly longer than required to allow for very slight play in post placement - some minimal trimming may be required. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MEASURE FIRST.
