K + R Building Materials
K + R Building Materials operates from five branches throughout the Midwest. We specialize in offering decking, railing, and accessories to the pro lumber dealer trade.
The NOVA Systems feature powder-coated aluminum posts, handrails and foot rails and horizontal cable infill. The cable infill utilizes HandiSwage™ fittings with 1/8” cable. Atlantis Rail offers two aluminum cable railing systems, NOVA and NOVA II. These systems are completely off-the-shelf and feature minimal components. The major differences between the systems include, handrail profiles, color options, height options, cap and skirt styles and rail mounting hardware. Each post and rail kit includes everything needed for installation. Post mounting hardware, cable and cable mounting hardware are sold separately.
Straight Sections- The NOVA II System is offered in a standard post height of 36" or 42" for straight sections.
Stair Sections- Railing heights are offered in these dimensions due to nationwide building codes requiring 34" to 38" stair rail heights. 42" railings do not require 42" stair railings unless special circumstances exist.
Between Posts Length- The NOVA II System is offered in 6' rail sections utilizing a cable stabilizer.
Railing Finish- The NOVA II System is offered in powder coated black, white or bronze finishes.
Cable Spacing- The cable is spaced on the posts at 3" on-center to comply with nationwide building codes.
The NOVA posts are surface mounted using the NOVA Post Mounting Hardware Kit. This kit includes 4, 5/16” x 4-1/2” hex head lag bolts and accompanying cover nuts. Customers must source their own mounting hardware when mounting on surfaces other than wood.
The NOVA Systems feature 1/8” diameter cable and a line of HandiSwage™ fittings including studs and tensioners. Using the HandiSwage™ line, makes the NOVA Systems one of the simplest and most economical cable railing systems available. All fittings cable and accessories are made from electro-polished, 316L stainless steel for maximum corrosion resistance and durability. For a finished look, we offer cover nuts sets to match the posts.
