So what’s wrong with cable rail?

  • Cable railing is not easily maintained, and from rubbing off paint to dripping rust, they quickly become a mess – and once they do, it’s not easily or cheaply reversed. Our deck railing system won’t make a mess.
  • Cable rail with enough tension often cause endposts to bow, ruining an otherwise elegant design. Our deck rail doesn’t rely on tension, avoiding this problem.
  • It’s nearly impossible to stay up to code using cable rails. When you install cable rails, you will sign paperwork as part of the California Business Code agreeing that a 50-pound weight will not make a taut cable bend (read more…). That’s a standard beyond the reach of most contractors, and it means you won’t be compliant starting immediately. Our deck railing system doesn’t impose impossible legal standards.

Why use our deck railing system?

  • While our deck railing system is typically easier to set up than a proper cable railing system which is up to code, the cost of our deck rail is comparable to an old-fashioned cable rail system.
  • Our products are gorgeous. You won’t find a cable railing system that looks better. Period.
  • Our deck rail system is far easier to maintain than a traditional, often rusty cable railing system – and unlike cable railing, our deck rail doesn’t become more difficult to maintain over time.
