Default Aluminum or Stainless Pool Railing?

Our pool does not have a rail to help walk up the stairs. We really don't have much of an issue but we have some older friends that seem to struggle. I want the ones that just bolt into the deck and not the pool. They are available in 316 SS and Aluminum like my T-Top. I live on a salt water canal and I have a salt water pool system.

S/S will stay shinny, aluminum will oxidize. Both will last for ever.

S/S is the way to go.

Its a coating not exactly sure what it is..... edit: "High impact polymer" but the main selling point is the railing doesn't require grounding / bonding. So it is a safe railing to add to any pool .
white, taupe, gray, beige, and black

BTW this is what we went with and it is great. It stays relatively cool so you don't burn your hand. Good stuff. Thanks for the suggestion.

If you are adding a rail to an existing pool something like the Saftron is really the only way to do it legally without a huge hassle getting the ladder cups bonded to the grid.
