Just in time for spring grilling and longer, warmer days, Cali Bamboo launches new universal deck railing systems and adds three debut decking colors to the premier composite decking line, TruOrganics®.
Rails and posts (sold in two separate kits) are color-matched and made of the same ultra-durable composite material as TruOrganics – Cali’s low maintenance planks, which are especially popular for their authentic wood grain beauty. This ensures finished decks are more cohesive in their overall look, performance, and ease of installation. It also significantly streamlines the deck shopping experience for Cali customers.
Speaking on the new deck railing systems, Cali Bamboo president, Doug Jackson, says, “We’ve established ourselves as makers of beautiful, high-quality decking. By introducing rail and post systems we’re now offering the full package, so that our customers – homeowners, architects, and contractors alike – can get their planks, posts, and rails in one purchase. Providing that whole deck experience, including all the expert installation and maintenance advice, is right in line with Cali’s overarching goals to constantly improve and lead the pack in world class service.”
Unlike many vinyl railings, the new rail and post systems are internally reinforced with galvanized steel, and have the same composition as the TruOrganics planks — 60% reclaimed wood fiber and 40% recycled plastic. The 15 black metal balusters included in each railing system are also galvanized steel, and ensure a safe and secure decking experience. Posts and rails are fully capped and protected by a total wrap shield, making them extra weather resistant even in harsh sun and heavy snow. Their easy-to-install, universal design works on all decking types with multiple anchors included. Sets are also easy to customize to accommodate various heights and lengths as well as stair applications. Both kits are backed by a 25 year residential warranty.
The Cali springtime decking launch also includes the release of three new TruOrganics decking colors: Glacier, Caribou, and Mojave. Glacier presents a lightly frosted gray, Caribou, a darkly wooded ebony-brown, and Mojave invokes desert vibes with a serene sand color. They join the current TruOrganics lineup — Sedona, Denali, and Yosemite.
The decking line is a customer favorite — popular for its natural-looking hardwood texturing, matte finish, and extra wide plank options. Planks feature a double-sided surface — with one side smooth and the other etched with a wood grain — and come in 8 or 16-foot lengths. A hidden fastening system enables quick, DIY installations, and a full, four-sided wrap shield makes messes and stains easy to clean.
The new deck railing systems (shown above in Denali) are made of the same weather-resistant wood composite material as TruOrganics decking and strengthened from within by galvanized steel.
Rail and post systems are color-matched to existing decking styles (shown above in Yosemite) for cohesive installations that are beautiful and stress-free.
