Steel Rail versus Aluminum Rail: What makes the best guardrail?

We've covered a number of topics related to railing design, but one question that we often see is what's the best railing material? Are there benefits to iron railing, or is aluminum the best for its high corrosion resistance? The short answer, is that aluminum is going to be the lowest maintenance and highest performing option for guardrails. The longer answer is more complicated, and in any selection you make for railing, you'll want to look at more than just the railing material itself.
