RDI® Railing’s Award-Winning Elevation™ Rail Provides a Fast Install for Unobstructed Views

Elevation Rail is an innovative horizontal cable railing system that can install 38% faster than the leading competition* with fewer SKUs that need to be ordered. With its modern, industrial design, Elevation Rail is unlike any other cable railing system on the market.

Requiring no special tools or fasteners, the system offers a continuous top rail for both stair and level applications. Panels span up to 6’ wide and can be installed indoors or outdoors offering homeowners unobstructed views in either setting.

Winner of the 2023 Best of IBS Award for Most Innovative Building Material at the annual NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS), Elevation Rail was selected as the sole recipient in its category from more than 400 entries.

Elevation Rail is available as pre-assembled kits in 36” and 42” heights with pre-installed brackets and pre-strung, stainless-steel cables. The modular panels easily adjust to fit smaller openings. The addition of a 42” high panel in early 2024 makes Elevation Rail viable for use in commercial and multi-family applications as well as residential projects.

This revolutionary cable system is a far cry from traditional cable railing that requires feeding each wire individually through posts, section by section. Once Elevation Rail’s posts are installed, its unique stainless steel pre-strung cable rail assembly slides into post ends.

Cables are then tensioned at one time using Barrette Outdoor Living’s patent pending OneTenTM built-in centralized tensioning system — a unique mechanism in the industry. Unlike competitors, the OneTen system eliminates the need to tension each cable individually and decreases the need for seasonal adjustments. This system saves contractors considerable time on a cable railing installation and makes a traditionally challenging DIY project easier for homeowners.

Elevation Rail features a Transferable Limited Lifetime Warranty for its aluminum railing and Limited Warranty for its cable fittings.
