The overview states no fittings are required. What does this mean? Because I would still have to purchase the tension and threaded ends, correct? I searched your website for a rod crimper tool but could only find a crimper for cable railing. Do u sell a rod crimper? If not, could you recommend a tool? Thank you

Hi Julie,

That is correct, our rod railing system is designed to work with the fasteners you’ll find in the Rod Railing Accessories page. While our rod system uses the same crimping tool as our cable system, we utilize non-standard crimping dies in conjunction with the 1/4″ rod system. If you specify in your online order notes that you require special dies for your railing system and crimping tool we would be happy to include the dies for you.

How often do you have to have a post for the rod railing?
Also, can you incorporate your existing wood newel posts with this railing?

Hi Sherry,

We recommend spacing your rod railing posts every 4′ on center. Yes – you can incorporate these rods with existing wood newel posts, but you’ll want an Oval Washer for both ends of each of your angled tension runs, and a Stainless Washer for each end of your level tension runs.

If you have additional questions, please give us a call at 1 (866) 226-6536.

Hi Paul,

That is correct – our rods are hollow. With proper installation, our rod system will meet both the 4″ sphere rule & exceed your load requirements to meet code. If you have additional questions, please give us a call at 1 (866) 226-6536.

Hi Tracy,

A 10-pack of our rods includes 10 rods cut to the specified length. For example, a 10-pack of 8ft rods would mean you receive a quantity of 10 rods precision cut at 8ft. If you have additional questions, please give our team a call at 1 (866) 226-6536.
