Spring is a time for renewal with warmer weather ahead and homeowners gearing up to be outdoor-living ready, especially now people are spending more time at home. For many homeowners, that means building, replacing, updating, or expanding their decking and railing options.
Whether the decking material is wood or composite, railings are an essential safety feature and can offer a stylish and finished look for any project. One trend that continues to grow is the demand for cable railings and the growing number of options in the marketplace.
Cable railings offer homeowners a design feature that opens up the living area giving it a more substantial appearance and an unobstructed view. With distinctive looks and low maintenance, cable railings are also code-compliant and work well in both modern and classic aesthetics.
The extensive collection of materials, components, and accessories is overwhelming, not to mention a showroom display challenge to properly showcase selections. But it doesn’t have to be that complex. In fact, RailFX® makes it simple with its easy-to-install systems, components, and cable railing kit option.
While cable railings are often sold in kits, there are all-in-one systems making it easier than ever for dealers and their customers to distinguish any project design.
Design flexibility and low maintenance
Not all projects are the same, and the flexibility to design a railing system is also an option. RailFX also offers an aluminum all-in-one railing solution for a more customized, create your own approach with a choice of glass, picket, and cable infill systems.
Using high-strength, lightweight and corrosion-resistant aluminum extrusions, customers can choose stock or custom colors that meet AAMA-2605 coating specifications, offer corrosion and impact resistance along with coating protection against rusting, cracking, peeling or repainting.
RailFX makes it easy to customize. The first step is to choose an infill option — cable, glass (custom glass options are available), or picket rail — then choose a post to post or over the post rails and post mounting styles. Posts and pickets come in-stock colors, black, white, bronze and silver, or a custom color of your choice.
RailFX offers easy field assembly for its aluminum systems with pre-engineered components that snap and screw together on site delivering a turnkey, simple solution. Aluminum posts are pre-cut and pre-drilled. Common and basic tools on hand are all that’s required to install RailFX aluminum all-in-one systems.
Installing cable railing kits is easy, and no special tools are required. RailFX cable railing kits feature the exclusive Push-Lock® and Pull-lock® fittings. The Push-Lock fitting allows you to push the cable in the fitting, and it locks. Once you pull the cable through the Pull-Lock fitting, finish up by cutting and capping the end.
Easy to install cable railing kits
Cable railing kits are available in several combinations and intended to work with a variety of design options, including stairs, angled, and one to two corner runs. An affordable option, kits come with stainless steel cable and hardware fittings — non-tensioning and tensioning — for both ends of a cable run.
RailFX cable railing kits include one cable in length increments of 5-feet to 70-feet and hardware fittings, washers, and necessary fasteners. RailFX offers cable railing kits for aluminum, wood, and composite posts for use in new or retrofit applications.
