Hello Chris - Our 36" kits are designed to be installed into an infill area measuring 24-1/2" tall. The 36" measurement is in reference to the overall handrail height of your deck railing.

Asked by Beth July 22, 2020

Answers

The cables will not be too short but maybe too long. I went with 25 5/8" and had no problem. There are springs in the cable ends and need to pull a little to make them tight. That was much better than being too loose.

Can your post be 6' apart or does it have to be in 3' sections?

Asked by Joann July 7, 2020

Answer

Ultimately posts spacing is up to the customer's preference however, the manufacturer's guidelines for Prova does recommend 39" post spacing to maintain maximum structural integrity and code compliance.

Very nice looking with redwood!!

can you mount the railing on a concrete porch

Asked by chef June 28, 2020

Answers

I would not do that because of installing the metal strips. I'm not sure how to hold it in the concrete. If you first secure at least a 1" board to the concrete first you might be able to use this.

can a 50 pound dog get through the rails?

Asked by Medic29 May 22, 2020

Answers

Depends on how tight you make the balusters.

How wide are the rail strips? Would I need 1x4 railings or 2x4" to attach the metal strips?

Asked by Dan May 17, 2020

Answers

The Insta-Rail stainless steel channels measure 1" wide

Did you use these and pass or fail inspection that required <=4" spacing?

Asked by Fleen May 2, 2020
1
Answer

Insta-Rail cable spacing is 4" center on center. This leaves little margin for error and can result in code failures for cable kits. For projects requiring inspection we recommend going with our Insta-Rail tube kits for 100% code compliance.

Straight forward install. Doesn’t allow to be tightened to be in compliance to code; cables should be closer together or the tracks should be more stout to allow it to tighten more. Looks good and does the job; but would not pass the 4” sphere rule.

Well designed and looks great. I don't agree with other reviewers that the spacing should be 30 3/4. I did 30 1/2 as the instructions say and it is just right. I recommend using a spacer stick to get it just right though. You will have some odd size spaces left at either end beside your posts - getting these equal takes careful planning and cutting of the steel rails. Hold the wire as you tighten the threaded barrel nuts, or else one end will unscrew while you tighten the other one. The screws are quite fat - at least #10 - so I pre-drilled and had no problem with stripping screw heads. The one big issue is that I'm pretty sure it won't meet code if you have a picky inspector. The wires are spaced 4 inches on center, which means they will deflect mid span to be worse. If only the manufacturer had spaced them at about 3.75 inches, it would all be perfect. Unsupervised crawling infants with heads smaller than 4.5 inches are rare at my house, so I don't think it's much of a REAL hazard.

As a contractor I installed these for the first time on a custom deck with stairs. The installation went well and I found the kits to work well. For the money, these are very good.

Bought several kits to redo my deck railing. had to make some adjustments to my deck rails to allow for the proper distance to fit the system. I recommend going a good 1/4" bigger space than instruction - it will give more tolerance for tighter cables. Easy enough to cut down to fit odd spaces at each end of deck run. Very easy to install and quick once you do the first one. Much better price compared to doing a horizontal cable and a fraction of the effort to install. Overall I really like the look and the price cant be beat. DIY level is easy - there is a video on youtube under insta-rail. I called manufacturer prior to install to get some questions answered and they directed me to video and answered my questions.

Product was easy to work with and to install. Have installed 14 sections, with another 24 to go. Like other posts have stated, the variance of 1/16" is not realistic. This went into a new deck railing, so I had the benefit of setting the lengths to exactly 24.5" and 30.5" (for the 42" kits). I found that after installing the first few, I could not tension the cables enough to keep within local building codes. So I expanded the openings to 24.75" and 30.75". Problem solved. This product would've gotten a perfect 5, except that two of the cable end fittings were stripped and could not be used. Because I measured and cut exactly, I had no leftover product. I have emailed the company twice to request how to get replacement cables, with no response from them. It has been over two weeks. Home Depot will not work with a "partial return" and get only two cables for me. And I don't feel like spending another $80 for only two cables (I have no further need for any more 36" sections...using all 42" from here on out). So I have a 12" gap in my railing still!!

This is a very nice quality product for the value and easy to install. It looks great. Watch the installation video prior to installing. The distance between your top and bottom rails must be precise. I strongly recommend that you add 1/4" inch to the instruction's stated distance between the rails. For the 42" railing system the instructions state the distance between the upper and lower rails is 30.5"(30 1/2"). I suggest you make this distance 30.75 (30 3/4") in order to put sufficient tension on the cables when tightening them. Otherwise at 30.5" the cables snug up and bottom out but are not taut. The extra space give you extra tightening capacity on the threaded studs. Also the recommended 7mm open end adjusting wrench will not fit on the wire's barrel (female) threaded end, is slightly too small, and 8mm is too large. You will need to file down the wrench's 7mm opening and I also had to file down the wrench end depth to fit into the groove on the wire barrel. This wrench is a must for adjusting the wire's tension. I also suggest a small needle nose visegrip wrench to hold the threaded studs from turning when adjusting the barrels. You would think Dolle would supply a proper sized adjusting wrench with the product as you can't find one in the USA. Otherwise I like it very much, looks great with many compliments and meets my expectations. I used it to replace a plexiglass interior balcony railing so that there is still an unobstructed view to the room below and it also provides a contemporary style. I used 5/4" X 4" wood rails.

Wood Balusters Goodbye
Wanted to improve our backyard view but other horizontal systems were much more costly. Removed wood balusters, added horizontal 2x4s to attach lower cable base. Project was 60 linear feet that consisted of runs as small as 27" up to runs of 90". Removal of old and installation of new took about 20 hours. Using wood clamps, was able to complete the job by myself. Only weakness in the materials were the phillip screws for upper and lower cable bases. I purchased several new titanium bits and still had problems "rounding out " the head of screws. Love the final results. See picture
