What causes railings to fail?

If your building is on or near the water, it’s probably already experiencing problems, many of which are caused by existing railing systems. Scroll through to see if your building is experiencing issues of spalling, rust, or corrosion.

Spalling Caused by Water Intrusion.


Spalling is a major cause of guardrail failures, and it may require extensive repairs of the concrete slab. Caused by water intrusion, the rebar within the concrete rusts and expands thereby cracking the concrete. This is most dangerous at the balcony’s edge. Learn more about how spalling concrete impacts balcony slabs, and what the best solutions are to these issues.

Galvanic Corrosion

Galvanic corrosion is a result of aluminum contact with a lesser or more noble metals in the presence of salt water. This condition is preventable and Poma has a patented anchor system for preventing future instances of galvanic corrosion. Learn more about how to prevent galvanic corrosion, and what the best solutions are for this condition.

Rust will appear on older guardrail systems made with direct embedded aluminum posts, improperly specified grout and steel post inserts, or incorrect hardware for the application or environment. Learn more about what causes guardrails to rust, and see how Poma’s patented anchor systems features corrosion resistant and compatible materials and epoxy-based impervious grouts to isolate and seal the cementitious substrate from the aluminum post.
