Western Red Cedar has been a construction favorite for hundreds of years thanks to its strength, beauty, and versatility. This top rail, or cap rail, is nearly half the thickness of typical wood railings, allowing you to keep your view even more open. In order to maintain structural integrity, this top rail option should be supported underneath by our POST-TO-POST
aluminum rail (sold separately), which discretely runs between posts and matches our other aluminum railing components.
These top rails are Select Tight Knot Grade
, meaning they possess color and grain variation with sound, tight knots distributed across the boards. This grade offers greater character and a more accessible price than our clear-grade woods. As with all our wood top rails, these boards are hand-selected from our supplier to offer you the best quality available.Technical Information:
