Barrette Outdoor Living’s RDI Collection Privacy Rail Offers Versatility and Seclusion

With an increased number of homeowners looking for ways to create seclusion around decks and patios, Barrette Outdoor Living’s RDI Collection Privacy Rail provides a highly versatile solution that not only looks great, but is also easy to install and maintain.

There are many reasons why a homeowner may want to add a privacy feature to their deck or patio — unsightly clutter in a neighbor’s yard, decreasing the amount of noise from a nearby road or simply creating an intimate, relaxing outdoor getaway. Whatever the case may be, the RDI Collection Privacy Rail offers modern styling with flexibility of design that can address homeowners’ needs.

Featuring 6’ wide, premium powder coated matte black or white aluminum framing that is available in full (6’) or half (42”) heights, the RDI Collection Privacy Rail can incorporate Barrette Outdoor Living’s vinyl boards, their award-winning Decorative Screen Panels (DSPs) — or a combination of the two — as infills*.

Tongue-and-groove vinyl infill boards feature ClickConnectTM — a locking system that connects the boards together without any gaps offering privacy and strength against wind or other potentially damaging elements. Aluminum posts are slotted and do not require the use of brackets — making vinyl boards installation easy — simply stack the infill boards, insert the top rail and screw into place.

Barrette Outdoor Living
Barrette Outdoor Living’s RDI® Collection Privacy RailTM — matte black aluminum framing with white tongue-and-groove vinyl infill boards on bottom and Boardwalk Decorative Screen Panels in white on top.

To create a semi-privacy option, homeowners can use vinyl boards in the bottom portion and DSPs in the top section — available in several unique patterns and colors. Using a special adaptor kit, DSPs easily slide into place to create a custom, contemporary look.

By integrating DSPs into the RDI® Collection Privacy Rail, Barrette Outdoor Living found a great way to provide a product that offers homeowners an easy way to showcase their creative style — and to have an outdoor product that will be the envy of the neighborhood, all while creating the privacy level that suits their needs.

If using DSPS as railing infills, homeowners can provide a continuity of design by applying them in other areas of the yard or house as well, including traditional under deck coverage, as exterior or interior wall artwork, or as privacy screening and room dividers. Other Barrette Outdoor Living products that integrate DSPs include select vinyl and mixed material fencing, pergola and DSP frame kits.
