See the difference with Insta-Rail® while enjoying those newly opened sightlines and a maintenance free railing solution. Made with premium stainless steel 1/8-inch diameter cables, each Insta-Rail® kit will complete a railing area 72 inches long and is designed for railings 42 inches in total height. Insta-Rail® Vertical Cable Railing kits requires a 30-1/2 in to 30-3/4 in opening between the top and bottom rails of your framing - see reference guide for details.
Please note: Dependent on installation method, condition of framing, and the inherent nature of cable railing itself a slight flex in cable may result in code failure over the 4” sphere test. For 100% IRC code compliance we recommend using our Insta-Rail Tube Railing Kit.
