B.W. Creative Offers Complete Railing System
B.W. Creative Wood Industries Ltd. of Maple Ridge, British Columbia, has introduced its CreativeRail railing systems. 

The company says key advantages to CreativeRail include profiled and pre-drilled railing (top and bottom). There is no measuring or calculating spacing needed, nor is there any need to drill baluster holes or screw-on baluster connectors and there’s no need for special jigs.

The CreativeRail system is available as a complete railing kit in a box, containing profiled and pre-drilled railing (top and bottom), a complete set of premium powder-coated aluminum balusters and a hardware kit designed to attach the railing section to the newel posts quickly and easily.

 

Young Offers a Moisture Compensating Return Tread
There is only one patented moisture compensating return tread available in the industry today. Young Manufacturing of Beaver Dam, Ky., designed it and patented it. A unique tongue-and-groove construction allows the tread to expand and contract by sliding along the groove instead of separating from the return, which the company says results in no more gaps.

The company has produced solid oak treads and risers for the finest American homes for three generations. Solid oak construction means the treads made 50 years ago remain as strong and beautiful as those produced today. 

Distributors can choose from a full family of solid oak, maple and poplar treads and risers, featuring Young’s patented moisture compensating return tread.

COLUMNS
Stylish Square Columns from Turncraft
Builders of craftsman, upscale country and eclectic contemporary houses can have the square column styles they desire with the low maintenance they have always wanted. 

White City, Ore.-based Turncraft has a new line of Square Poly-Classic® Columns—non-tapered straight-sided, raised-panel and fluted. Now with fashionable pedestal bases and the look and feel of natural stone, the company says Poly Classic columns are made of a rotocast fiberglass-reinforced polymer with concise edges and meticulous attention to detail. The columns offer maximum load-bearing capacities and hollow centers, and are useful as channels for downspouts, wiring and plumbing.
