    railings

    hello y'all i have been doing some 1 1/2 " dom railings and they are longer than my coating guys oven so i welded them in place after powder i matched the paint and cleared. my question is what are you all doing in the field when it comes to powder coat. i am not worried about welding in the field i am set up pretty good on that. i have seen some railings that just have the 2 ends butted together and not welded. just cerious on what the railing guys do?
    Thanks Jake

    How long are the rails, and what is the length of
    your coaters oven?

    Why are you using DOM vs 1.250 [1.660 OD] pipe?
    DOM seems an unnecessary cost/expense ^ ^ ^ .

    I refuse to weld powder coated components in the
    field; I consider it low budget - aka - poor planning.

    You have to get creative with sectional joinery . . .
    so you can do-it-all in the shop, eg.:

    I design splices near posts when possible, they are
    internally sleeved, and bolted underneath/overhead
    [unseen]. Counter-bores in the sleeves, allow the
    Allen head cap screws to flush with the tube OD.

    Virtually everything I build that's coated, is field fit
    before it is coated.

    Re: railings

    Handrail gripping surface shall be 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 inches diameter! ada compliant railing or is that not looked into that much? I get that i shouldn't have welded those in the field but i didn't think much about it! i will now make tube splices to line everything up! thanks for your input!
    coater's oven can get 32 feet in diagonal. so going back to your inter sleeve what size pipe do you do inside your 1.25 pipe?
    Thanks Jake
