|HOW TO INSTALL ON-AN-ANGLE RAILING
TREX TRANSCEND (CROWN AND UNIVERSAL)
NOTE: Trex Railing brackets are designed to be installed up to a 45° angle.
- Small angles (1° to 30°). Both 4x4 or 6x6 post sleeves work well.
- Large angles (31° to 45°). USE ONLY 6x6 post sleeves when installing on flat side.
- 45° angles using 4x4 post sleeves MUST use Transcend's bird mouth brackets
NOTE: Railing will be installed on corner of posts.
- Using 6x6 post sleeves at 45° angles. Brackets are installed off-center and use 45° Transcend gaskets.
- Railing gaskets are designed to fit at 0°, 22.5°, and 45° angles. Gaskets are labeled with appropriate
HOW TO INSTALL CROWN AND UNIVERSAL BIRD'S MOUTH RAILING
- Use with 4x4 post sleeve ONLY.
- Gaskets are only designed for use with Transcend crown and universal railing.
Read all instructions BEFORE installation.
|| Measure and mark 4" and 33-9/16" up from bottom of post skirt. For a 42" rail, top
mark is 39-9/16" on post.
NOTE: Without skirt, add 1-1/2" to measurements.
Snap adaptors into RSBs.
Pre-drill Bottom and Top RSBs
|| Position RSBs with adaptor (flat side DOWN) for lower rail, mark and pre-drill screw holes with
1/8" drill bit on post.
|| Position RSBs with adaptor (b>(flat side UP) for top rail, mark and pre-drill screw holes with 1/8"
drill bit on post.
Measuring and Cutting Rails
|| Measure from corner-to-corner between posts. Mark 45° cuts on rails with template on assembly tool. Center of
the "V's" is the distance from corner-to-corner for posts.
NOTE: Subtract 1/16" from each end to accomodate rail gaskets.
|Attaching Top and Bottom RSBs
|| Attach RSBs with adaptors to posts with wood screws (provided).
- Drill at slight inward angle to drill holes on marks.
- Lay cut lower rail into position on decking surface between the posts before attaching the lower RSBs. There
may be some difficulty attaching the lower rail if you fail to do this.
|Installing Railing to RSBs
|| Attach with self-tapping screws (provided).
|Using Mitre Box Saw to Cut Rails
- Place 2x4 on edge behind the rail to allow for complete cut.
- Angle blade to 45°.
- Set stop on saw so blade travels half the depth of the rails. Several test cuts can be made on scrap
material to accurately set stop.
- "V" cut both sides of the rail.
