Benefits of using Subrailing:
• Easy and professional Baluster installation. Just nail or screw through top of Subrail into top of Baluster. Then screw through bottom of Subrail into bottom of Handrail and no hardware will show! Review our installation system for details.
• Handrailing will be more substantial, as the Subrail appears to be part of the Handrail!
• You can easily paint your Subrails a contrasting color (before installation, of course) to achieve a 'pinstripe' effect.
It is not necessary for Balusters to be as wide as Subrail, but Subrail must fit into the Handrail bottom channel, if present.
Optional Subrail Bottom Channel
A bottom channel will make installation of Sawn Balusters quite a bit easier. We can cut a centered 1/4" deep channel into the bottom of your Subrails for $0.29 per foot and ONE $20 Setup Fee per order. These fees will not show on your online order nor on subsequent auto-generated emails, but we will manually adjust your final invoice to include them.
Interior Subrails are also available.
Note: We are currently unable to obtain Western Red Cedar at reasonable prices in the quality and lengths we require for Rails. We suggest you consider Cypress or AZEK® Brand Cellular PVC (synthetic wood) if you want to upgrade from Poplar for exterior use.
