: New aluminum railings have recently been installed on our condominium balconies. Now,an off shore breeze generates vibrations and accompanying noise that are very noticeable. Has anyone experienced a similar problem and do you have a remedy?

The wind is exciting the natural frequency of the rails, this is common with power lines. Try attaching a small deflector mid-way to break this pattern.
