AGS Stainless partners with Holbrook Lumber
AGS Stainless, Inc., the manufacturer of high-quality stainless steel railing systems, has announced a new partnership with Holbrook Lumber.
The partnership calls for Holbrook Lumber to distribute the new Cascadia Bar Railing System from AGS, primarily in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont.
Cascadia is a stainless steel bar railing system that installs with minimal field modifications. Cascadia was designed to give builders and DIYers a stainless railing product at a price closer to that of an aluminum railing system, but offering much higher quality.
A key feature of Cascadia railing system components is that they can be pulled from dealer inventory, and installed the very same day, AGS said.
“The market for outdoor living products is resilient,” said Kevin Harris, director of sales and marketing for AGS Stainless. “Building material dealers are reporting strong year-over-year sales in railing products. When you factor in that homeowners are increasingly interested in higher-quality deck and stair railing products, Cascadia is the right product at the right time."
According to AGS, Cascadia is currently the only ICC ES-approved metal railing system with a horizontal infill. This allows for immediate acceptance by the vast majority of building departments, eliminating the time-consuming review and approval process.
“Prior to Cascadia, if you wanted a stainless railing system for your deck, and you wanted it fabricated to the industry’s highest standard of quality, it often meant hiring a local metal fabricator,” Harris noted. “So, where a typical stainless railing system might require a number of weeks for the metal fabricator to complete the entire design, permit approval, fabrication and installation process – Cascadia allows almost everyone to quickly and affordably add the durability and timeless beauty of a stainless steel railing system to their home.”
Peter Krihak, president of Holbrook Lumber said, “AGS Stainless’ ‘Cascadia Railing’ is a beautiful, yet affordable solution to residential stainless railing needs.”
Krihak also noted that the Cascadia marine-grade stainless bar railing system “with limited SKU’s and ease of application is a clear winner. ”
