A complete railing system
Western Red Cedar Deck Railing System
Silva’s Western Red Cedar deck railing system comprises of four components - posts, top / lower rails, cap rail and balusters - which can be used to create a variety of railing styles. A popular method of construction (illustrated in the photographs on this page) is to fit the top / lower rails in between the posts; the cap rail runs across the top of the posts and the balusters attach to the top lower rails. The top of the baluster butts up to the underside of the cap rail and bottom of the balusters can be cut at 45° to give a more finished look. This simple design will produce a stylish and remarkably solid deck rail.
