Stainless Steel Rod Railing from Viewrail has the same profile as cable rail but is more durable, and able to be bent to turn a radius. Each rod is 1/4-inch in diameter and tensioned just like cable. However, Stainless Steel Rods won’t sag or deform. Their strength makes them capable of lasting a lifetime. Stainless Rods match stainless steel posts and handrail to create an integrated railing system. The rods require less labor to install than similar lengths of cable.
Stainless Steel Rods are made from 2205 ultra-marine grade stainless steel, the same stainless steel used for marine propeller shafts, offshore oil rigs, and in the rebuilt support structure of the Statue of Liberty. In the harshest coastal environments, where cable will turn brown and rust, Stainless Rods will remain beautiful.
Viewrail, based in Goshen Ind., is a manufacturer of rod, glass, and cable railing, in addition to the FLIGHT floating stair system. A wood shop plus a full steel and aluminum shop permit all product and assembly, testing and shipping to be accomplished in-house.
