If you're installing cable railing, the Deckorators ALX Contemporary Cable Railing system makes the process easier. You'll get compatible components that are designed to work together. This Top Rail will support your cable railing system.
The kit is designed for a 36-inch-high railing and is available in 6-foot and 8-foot on-center lengths. Note that this is on-center post spacing.
The kit includes a top rail and 1 or 2 anodized aluminum cable spacers (depending on the rail length). The 3/4-inch spacers have predrilled holes for cables. Spacers are needed to support the weight from the top rail—so no sags! Rail itself is 1.25 inches high and 2 inches across.
All needed brackets and hardware are included. Rail is heavy-gauge aluminum with weather-resistant powder-coated finish in 4 colors.
To complete your cable railing, you will also need Cable Kits, Line (horizontal) Posts, End Posts, and Corner Posts (depending on your deck layout).
TIP: The Top Rail is 6 or 8 feet on center. So if you need to trim the rail, you'll save yourself a headache by cutting equal amounts from each end, because the rail is predrilled for the spacer(s).
