News & Media

November 29, 2023

As 2023 comes to a close The Deck Supply would like to review some of the most popular products according to our customers! This year, reliable steel, aluminum, and cable components ruled the railing segment across every industry supplier. For full kits, mounting, and hardware, we saw more metal deck supplies fly off our shelves than ever before. These are the products our dexperts are investing in to build the next generation of dream decks.

10. EZ-Clean Metal Cleaner / Protectant

To start our countdown of products that led to new possibilities in 2023, we start with the basics. Keeping metal components clean and protected is crucial for the longevity of your deck. Making dreams come to life starts with the right preparation, which made this product one of our most popular additions to the rest of these metal deck supplies.

8. Fortress AL13 EVOLVE Angle Rail Connectors

Some of the best items we provided in 2023 were all about making the right connections. Fortress made building strong connections easy by evolving a crucial part of deck railing. These connectors are built to mount level rail sections to posts when post connections are not square. The AL-13 comes with metal screws to secure aluminum posts. Each kit also includes wood screws where rails attach to structural supports or posts.

6. RailFX™ Adjustable Top Post Plates for Wood Top Rail

5. Westbury Tuscany Level Rail Kit

Our final five metal deck supplies made a huge impact on decks across the nation. In 2023, metal railing was hot! But in 2024, things are heating up even more. The Westbury level rail kit is one of the wisest investments hardcore DIYers and contractors made for the years ahead. With the virtually rust-proof aluminum construction, the Tuscany was definitely one of the most impressive offerings at The Deck Supply in deck building this year.

4. Fortress AL13 34″ Aluminum Assembled Rail Sections

Fortress stayed very popular by helping customers save time and money on installation. With options for panelized infills and pre-attached brackets, rail systems can go up in minutes, not hours. Customization sets these sections apart with a variety of looks. Customers set their design dreams free with top, accent, or drink rail options with every solution we supply!


Safety and reliability also played a major role in our recommendation for these metal deck supplies. The FortressLock powder-coated finish resists corrosion and includes UV protection, for the ultimate longevity and professional look of your railing. In addition to coming assembled as completely ADA-compliant, these rails are highly versatile! Many homeowners elevate the level of safety and ambiance to their outdoors by adding Fortress Accents™ LED lighting to their deck!

2. RailFX™ 10 Pack Cable Contractor Packs

At The Deck Supply, we offer contractor-grade products to consumers who require the best components for their deck. To supply contractors with the highest-quality and vast quantity of solutions they need, RailFX and our dexperts recommend buying in bulk.


The average “pro DIYer” may never use this much cable in their deck’s lifetime, but to get the best return for the big projects, more contractors than ever are mounting cable instead of opting for traditional metal deck supplies. The flexibility and durability of these cables are why our dexperts dream of these cables as we settle in for the final months of 2023.
