Bring Simplicity and Style to Stair Rail Installation

Deck stair railing installation is often tricky, but easy-to-install connectors can help. Deckorators® offers bracket solutions to make your composite and aluminum stair railing installations fast, simple and, of course, stylish.
Deckorators offers two types of stair rail brackets within our CXT composite and ALX aluminum Deckorators railing systems: U-brackets and external brackets. Both are designed to help you attach railings quickly and accurately, but each gives your customers unique aesthetics.
Available for Deckorators CXT Pro composite stair applications, the stainless steel U-bracket simplifies installation and hides fasteners. With the U-bracket, you can easily connect the inner rail to the post with six stainless steel screws, then cover the bracket with the decorative outer rail to create a clean appearance.
Our external brackets come pre-drilled for your convenience and help you achieve a perfectly coordinated look for a CXT Classic, CXT Architectural, ALX Pro or ALX Classic aluminum railing system. Made of highly durable plastic and easily attachable with stainless steel screws, these brackets are available in white and black.
Regardless of which bracket solution you use, building codes generally require stair railings to be attached to posts at a 35-degree angle. Always carefully follow local code and the stair railing installation instructions in the Deckorators Technical Guide for the railing system you’re installing.
