Product Information:

Onyx is the latest and most innovative of our patented products, boasting bold design with clean lines. These 304 Stainless Steel rods are great for both interior and exterior projects, as long as your outdoor project is not within 10 miles of the coast. If you have a project within 10 miles of the coast or are exposed to high UV radiation, Coastal Onyx Rods are a great solution. Its beauty is surpassed only by its durability. After years in the cable railing industry, we took everything we learned and sought to make a brand new, improved railing option that had all the benefits of cable without the weaknesses. Our Rod Railing will not sag over time, it maintains its tension and spring, and can be bent to turn a radius. Finally, this is our easiest system to install, cutting install time in half when compared to comparable cable railing projects. Best of all, it clocks in at the same price point as cable.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Onyx Rods?
Onyx Rod Railing is an alternative style to our Signature Rod Railing line. In the Onyx line, every part of the system from the rods to the hardware is black so that you can achieve an entirely black railing system.
How Do The Onyx Components Work?
The Onyx Rod Railing components work the exact same way as the components in the Signature Rod Railing line. However, we use an oxidation process to make the components black so that the entire system has a black, uniform look.
Is Onyx A Safe Exterior Railing System?
Yes! The 304 Stainless Steel rods are powder coated black and are great for an exterior project. However, if your project is within 10 miles of the coast or exposed to high UV radiation, Coastal Onyx Rods are required.
How much are Onyx Rods?
Onyx rod railing is $135-$185 per linear foot for an aluminum system. Prices vary based on whether you have stairs as part of your system, how many corners you have, and other project specific conditions.
