This Rainier cable railing system on an elevated concrete slab patio for a home in Washington State features a corner post assembly with an angled stainless steel bar to join the posts together and promote stability. A practical gooseneck top rail transition delicately accommodates a height differential that was necessary for promoting safety when connecting open riser stairs to the patio. Unlike closed riser stairs, open riser stairs have spaces where the vertical parts of the steps would normally be to make it seem like the treads are floating in midair. Treads are the horizontal parts of the steps upon which a person can walk. These kinds of height transitions can be tricky to measure on your own, so facilitators like Luke Cauthorn, who are easy to communicate with, will be there to confirm every measurement with you before your project moves into the fabrication stage.
I had a good experience with AGS Stainless. Luke Cauthorn was really easy to communicate with. As with any project, there were a few issues along the way (one being my bad measurement) but everyone at AGS was on top of it and politely helped me. My railings are installed and look beautiful. Thank you!
