Product Overview

If you’re putting a sleek cable railing on outdoor stairs, this stair rail kit from Deckorators® forms the top rail. The top rail kit is part of Deckorators’ elegant ALX Contemporary Cable Railing line. Deckorators' system is streamlined to eliminate time-consuming steps like drilling perfectly aligned holes and fussing with turnbuckles.

The Stair Rail Kit works for both 36-inch and 42-inch rail heights and comes in 6-foot and 8-foot on-center lengths. Note that this is on-center post spacing. It comes with brackets that swivel to adapt to the stair angle. The kit also includes 1 or 2 anodized aluminum cable spacers (depending on the length of railing you choose). Spacers are needed to support the weight from the top rail—so no sags! The 3/4-inch spacers have predrilled holes for cables. Note that you may need to trim the spacers to fit your railing installation.

Rail is heavy-gauge aluminum with weather-resistant powder-coated finish in 4 colors. Rail itself is 1.25 inches high and 2 inches across.

To complete your cable stair railing, you will also need Line or End Posts for the top, Middle Stair Posts, Bottom Stair Posts, and Cable Kits.

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).
