What is Rod Railing?

Rod Railing is a sleek and modern railing solution that uses ¼” 2205 duplex stainless steel rods as its infill to create beautiful and code compliant railing. It is similar in style and profile to cable railing, but with distinct advantages. Rod railing is extremely corrosion resistant, will never sag, can be bent to turn corners, and takes far less time to install than cable railing.

Rod Railing Posts

Viewrail’s rods are placed every 3 ⅛” along each of its rod railing system’s metal posts. These posts come pre-drilled, pre-cut, and ready for installation. These rod railing posts are at the forefront of modern convenience—not only are they easy to install, they also hide all the rods’ necessary hardware and componentry within themselves. This gives you the cleanest and simplest look.

Stainless Steel Rods

Viewrail makes their rods from 2205 duplex stainless steel. This is the same material which deep sea oil rigs and high-traffic locations around the world use. The smooth surface of the rods leaves no point of weakness for corrosion or rust, which can be a problem with other railing infill. This material makes rod railing the best option for outdoor applications, corrosive environments, and any projects near water. Unlike cable, these rods are simple to maintain, will never corrode, and won’t sag over time.

Rod Railing Installation

A major benefit that sets Viewrail rod railing apart from other modern railing systems is its ease of installation. The process of cutting, deburring, crimping, and installing rods is simple and takes hours, often days, less than installing cable railing.
