Cable has become a very popular infill option for railing because it offers unobstructed views, has a modern appearance, and is low maintenance. Although most cable railing will boast those same characteristics, the thing that often sets them apart from one another is their ease of installation. Some cable rail systems require professional contractors to install because they're so complicated. With RailEasy by Atlantis Rail Systems, practically anyone can install it in a relatively short amount of time. RailEasy has a patented design that allows it to be installed and maintained with only simple tools that most homeowners likely already have. 

RailEasy Cable Railing

RailEasy by Atlantis Rail Systems is a horizontal cable railing infill system that can be used with any wood, metal, or composite posts to create a modern, streamlined railing with unobstructed views. The system consists of patented cable rail fittings, stainless steel cable, and all other necessary hardware. Made from extremely corrosion-resistant 316L grade stainless steel, these fittings and cable will gracefully withstand years of exposure to the elements.

The RailEasy System is highly versatile in that it allows you the freedom to choose the posts you want to pair the cable with. Oftentimes consumers will opt for standard 4x4 wood posts because they're more price-friendly. However, composite, vinyl, and metal posts also pair well with this cable system and are all good options. Whichever posts you prefer, when you combine them with RailEasy, you will always have a stylish, timeless railing system.
