  • Use the Level Line Post to connect two level sections in a straight line
  • Use the Level Line Crossover Post to create a continuous top rail over the top of your line post
  • Use the taller Stair End Post at the bottom of your stairs
  • Use the Stair Line Post in the middle of your stairs

How To Choose Your Height

Post heights depend on the type of post you choose:
  • Level End Posts and Level Line Posts are 37 inches to create a code-compliant 36-inch tall railing section.
  • Level Line Crossover Posts are 33-1/2 inches tall. The included crossover bracket adds more height to create a code-compliant 36-inch tall railing section
  • Stair End Posts and Stair Line Posts are 42 inches because you need taller posts in the middle and at the bottom of stairs to create a consistent 36-inch tall railing

How Many Cable Runs Per Section?

Skyline Cable Railing has 11 runs of cable per railing section for all applications.
