FlexFX Program

The FlexFX Program - a simple and flexible railing fitting option that improves any view and makes your living space look and feel larger. The FlexFX Railing option from RailFX® allows you to incorporate these same fittings into any residential railing application with ease. Ideal for both interior and exterior projects, our FlexFX stainless steel fittings and cable are perfect for decks, docks, balconies and stairways that use wood posts, metal posts or composite sleeves. Made in the USA with pride!

You will need at least one Tensioner per run of cable. Pictured are common combinations of tensioners and non-tensioners. FlexFX fittings are engineered to be used with FlexFX cable only.

Cable Railing Kits

RailFX Cable Railing Kits come with Stainless Steel Cable Railing Hardware Fittings for both ends of your cable run, along with all washers and fasteners necessary. Your choice of 1/8″ or 3/16″ diameter 1×19 Type 316 stainless steel cable and installation instructions.

Cable Railing Kits come in cable length increments of 5′ to 70′ lengths. You will then cut the cables to their proper lengths on site. Each kit contains one cable plus all associated hardware for that cable.

Accessories, such as mounting tabs, cable cutters and other installation aids and equipment can be ordered separately. For coastal applications in a salt water environment, it is strongly recommended that E-Z Clean is purchased along with any kit. While Type 316 stainless steel, the most corrosion and rust-resistant stainless steel available, is used almost exclusively in our hardware, it is stain-less steel, not stain-proof. If you’re near the ocean, some maintenance will be required.

Fitting Types

  • Non-Tensioning fittings are coupled with tensioning fittings to support the cable as it is tightened to the appropriate level to pass your local building code requirements.

  • Tensioning: Every cable run needs at least one tensioning fitting to ensure the cable can be made taut enough to pass your local building code requirements.

Cable Kit 601 Series - for Wood Posts

Wood Post 601 Series Cable Kit

The 601 Series Kit can be used with both existing or new install wood posts. One of the fittings will install through-the-post and the other fittings will mount to the face of the post. The 3½” Invisiware® Receiver can easily tension the cable with a standard 3/16″ Allen wrench while the Push-Lock® Lag allows you to simply push the cable into the fitting.

RailFX 212 Series Kit

Straight cable runs and cable runs through one corner are the perfect applications for the 212 Series Kit. There needs to be dedicated end posts for each run, and posts situated such that the back side of the posts are all accessible, meaning you can use a through-the-post configuration.

For metal posts, a minimum of 1-1/2″ outside diameter is required. Included in the kit is a tensioning Invisiware® Receiver fitting. The receiver installs through the post on one end and a Pull-Lock® fitting is installed through the other end.

When taking cable railing through a corner, do not bend the cable past 45⁰ at any one time. If turning 90⁰, a 2-step turn, using a double corner post configuration is required.

RailFX 300 Series Kit - Composite Sleeve Posts

Straight Runs with Sleeved Posts:

For sleeved wood posts, use the 300-C Series cable kit. The tensioning device is an Adjust-a-Body® with Hanger Bolt, which lags into the wood post on one end. A Push-Lock® Lag is lagged into the other end.

When taking cable railing through a corner, do not bend the cable past 45⁰ at any one time. If turning 90⁰, a 2-step turn using a double corner post configuration is required as illustrated in Deck 2.

RailFX 500 Series Kit - Composite Sleeved Posts

Cable Runs on a Pitch

Top posts are often corner posts, which may require the stair run to connect to the face of your post. The top and bottom of the cable run would be connected perpendicular to those posts, only the intermediate posts would be drilled on the angle for the cable to run through.

Use the 500 Series for sleeved posts with an outside diameter greater than 4½”.

The tensioning device is an Adjust-a-Body® with Threaded Eye, which attaches via a mounting screw to the lag eye, threaded tab or extended length lag eye, depending on the kit.

A Push-Lock® with Threaded Eye attaches the same way to the other end.

As it is not recommended to bend cable through a sleeved post, stair to landing for sleeved posts would be two separate runs.

Top posts are often corner posts, which may require the stair run to connect to the face of the post. The top and bottom of the cable run would be connected perpendicular to those posts and only the intermediate posts would be drilled on the angle for the cable to run through.

A Push-Lock® with Threaded Eye attaches the same way to the other end. The 500-W Series can be used to go up a stair and across a landing by inserting post protector tubes ( CS-TUBE ordered separately) in the break-over post. The tube will prevent the cable from carving a groove into your post over time where it exits at an angle.

RailFX Basic 102 Kit

A through-the-post configuration is the ideal scenario for our Basic threaded stud kits. The threaded studs are a functional fitting (not a hide-in-the-post solution). A Brass Hex Nut and some metal thread (both covered by an end cap) will extend beyond the back of the post on one end. A Pull-Lock® fitting is installed through the other end.

For either wood or metal posts, use the 102 Basic Series. The tensioning device is a 2-7/8” long threaded stud which installs on the back side of one of your end posts.

When taking cable railing through a corner, do not bend the cable past 45⁰ at any one time. If turning 90⁰, a 2-step turn using a double corner post configuration is required.
