Deckorators Adds Cable Railing to Product Offering

Grand Rapids, Mich., October 5, 2015 – Deckorators®, a brand of the Universal Forest Products, Inc. (Nasdaq: UFPI) family of companies, has introduced a new Cable Railing system in booth 2111 at DeckExpo 2015 to create and complement contemporary designs. The sleek, versatile new system expands the line of customized railing options from Deckorators, an industry leader in decking, railings, balusters, post caps and more.

Ultra-low maintenance Deckorators cable rail is compatible with CXT Pro, CXT Classic, ALX Pro, ALX Classic (using ALX Pro post sleeve) and various wood railing options. For most applications, Deckorators cable rail can be used with just a top rail for a clean, contemporary appearance.

“New Deckorators cable rail is a minimalist system capable of giving any deck a modern feel,” said Chris Camfferman, director of product management and merchandising, Universal Forest Products. “We’re pleased to offer our customers another stylish option in our unique collection of railing products.”

In addition to cable rail, Deckorators introduced a variety of other railing, accessories, post cap and lighting products at the show:

Aluminum Cap Rail with Woodgrain Finish
The new Deckorators woodgrain cap rail offers a natural-looking finish without the maintenance of wood, providing a perfect finishing touch for the Deckorators ALX Pro railing system. Available in 6- and 8-foot lengths, the product is backed by the Deckorators 25-year removal-and-replacement warranty.

Two-Piece Postcovers
New Deckorators two-piece postcovers are perfect for fitting around existing posts or structures, turning ordinary pillars into natural-looking posts with personality. Made of fiberglass-reinforced concrete, the 42” pieces are available in gray cobblestone and beige stacked stone.
