Fantastic product and fantastic customer service. I am a DIY’er, and I just can’t believe I have created such a beautiful railing system in my own home. So glad I found you!

Super company to work with. Great product and customer support.

Viewrail helped us design a beautiful railing, even meeting with our contractor at a trade show where they both happened to be in town.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is cable railing safe?

When built to code, cable railing is a very safe option for railing. There are specific requirements for each aspect of the railing system, such as handrail height, the amount of pressure that the system must be able to withstand, and how far apart the posts must be spaced. In general, cable railing code requirements come from two different sources: The IRC (International Residential Code), and local, city, or state codes (for example: the California’s Guardrail Code)

Does Viewrail cable railing meet code requirements?

Yes, all of our railing systems not only pass code, but far exceed most strength and safety requirements, including the 4” and 6” sphere rules, and all regulations for handrail or guardrail height. In fact, our post-to-post cable railing systems are certified by the International Code Council.

How do I buy cable railing?

At Viewrail, you have three main options for buying cable railing. You can shop for Express cable railing, our most popular style and configuration (black metal posts, black metal handrail, cable infill). Since we always keep Express in stock, you can use the Express railing builder to find the parts you need and purchase them directly. They typically ship in 2 business days or less.

If you’re looking for something more custom, you can work with our designers to custom-engineer a Signature cable railing system for your style and space. This process takes a little longer, but you have much more control over the style, finishes, materials, price, and timeline of your project.

Though this is less common, you can also purchase our DriveTite cable kits, which enable you to drill cable wiring infill directly into new or existing wood posts.
