“Since 1991, we have continued to educate contractors, architects, and homeowners of the benefits of using aluminum railing products.”

Founded on a principle of innovation and partnership, American Railworks began promoting awareness of aluminum railing technologies and their inherent advantages to the Western Washington building community. Since 1991, we have continued to educate contractors, architects, and homeowners of the benefits of using aluminum railing products and powder-coat paint technologies as a superior alternative to the once-industry standard steel, iron, and wood railing materials.

As the market becomes more familiar with aluminum railings systems, we partner with suppliers, contractors, architects, and developers to provide our clients with customized solutions to meet their precise needs. Our experienced designers and installation technicians have engineered and installed hundreds of thousands of lineal feet of railings throughout Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Texas, Nevada, and Hawaii. While spreading into new regions across the United States we recognize the importance of developing long-term mutually beneficial relationships with our customers and employees. We believe in our people, product, and professionalism.


Through mutually beneficial business partnerships, American Railworks seeks to innovate product line offerings and provide unparalleled customer service support while expanding into new markets across the nation.


Operating in an ever-changing market, American Railworks meets these challenges with flexibility and accountability. Our company holds the interests of our clients and employees above all others. We believe in progression and make every effort to share in the accomplishments of our stakeholders.


All of American Railworks’ designers and fabricators started as installers, giving the Railworks team a hands-on perspective to the ever-changing needs in the field. All of our railing systems are designed and built according to each individual customer’s specifications, meaning we treat each railing system as a custom build. This sets our company and our product as superior to the “kit” systems available on the market, with their individual components requiring piecing together in the field. Our railings are fully-fabricated, powder-coated, then carefully crated and shipped to their destination point, insuring the maximum amount of strength and durability while maintaining the aesthetics of design.
