Stainless Steel Railing: Safe, Durable, & Rust-free

Each ¼” rod is made from 2205 duplex stainless steel, a metal that will stand up to even the harshest coastal environments. With special fasteners to hide the components away in the post, the railing is an aesthetically pleasing and very secure option. Stainless rods pair great with our steel staircases

Rods are similar in style to cable railing, with one important difference: they will never sag over time. They are also stronger and more durable than wire railing systems. The straight, thin profile of the rod means that the system is incredibly simple to clean and maintain. Additionally, Rod railing is completely code compliant. Each system must be built to follow railing code — there are international, local, city, and state codes that dictate the requirements for each particular project. Building codes can be complicated to navigate, but our stainless steel railing is designed to meet and exceed these code requirements without compromising on design.
