Adding Lattice to Deck Railing
As you can see there are a few ways to add the lattice privacy screen on top of your deck railing.
Here are a few more pictures with a little information on how the customer attached the lattice to the deck railing.
You can build a frame around the lattice sheet at mount it on top of the deck rail. This method does not require an additional post to accommodate the height added to the deck railing.
This client replaced the existing 4’post with 6’ post and used vinyl hand rails to make a frame. Then with the use of the u-channels, he framed the lattice sheets and screwed them to the post and rails. The very top panel is attached to the top of the post and to a beam on his pergola.
Do you have an aluminum railing on your deck? No worries, add the lattice sheet to the top of the railing by using additional aluminum rails and extending the post. Simply place the lattice sheet in a channel and screw the channel and lattice into the post and railing system.
