Product Overview

If you’re putting a sleek cable railing on your deck, you’ll love the results when you use Deckorators® ALX Contemporary Cable Railing. This elegant, streamlined system begins with a top rail.

This Top Rail kit is for a 42-inch-high railing and comes in 6-foot and 8-foot on-center lengths. That's on-center post spacing.

Kit contains a top rail and 1 or 2 anodized aluminum cable spacers (depending on rail length). The 3/4-inch spacers have predrilled holes for cables. Spacers are required to support the weight from the top rail—so no sags! Posts are not included (available separately). 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 Posts (also called horizontal posts), End Posts, and Corner Posts (depending on your deck layout).

TIP: The Top Rail is 6 or 8 feet on center. If you need to trim the rail, you'll save yourself a headache by cutting equal amounts from both ends, because the rail is predrilled for the spacer(s).
