Our custom-designed rail cap was built with aesthetics, functionality and ease of installation in mind. The rail cap is designed to accommodate lighting across the deck-
- Two piece structure with vertical grain wood top
- Grooved channel for low voltage (12 volt) electrical wiring
- Smooth, rounded top surface for frequent touching

Like our other decking products, our rail cap is highly functional and complementary to the rest of your deck. Since the rail cap is the most touched item on a deck, we added a 1/2” roundover edge that provides a smooth finish to the touch of the hand. Again, the top surface of our rail cap is specially milled with a slight crown designed to shed water and prevent cupping. The bottom face is milled to allow for easy wiring installation without having to run a wire up and down each rail post. The cap’s bottom runner provides extra stability to your rail cap and handrail and seals the wiring and wire nuts within the runner’s and rail cap’s channel. The rail cap is designed to fit together easily with the railing post and shorten installation time (both structure and electrical wiring) considerably.
*Note that our rail cap is strictly designed for low voltage (12 volt) electrical wiring. It is NOT designed for 110 volt electrical wiring. Also, in those situations where you prefer not to have lighting, you can use our deck wood flooring without any aesthetic issues whatsoever.
