TimberTech Drink Rail

Innovative solutions to suit your lifestyle: Drink rail design uses a TimberTech deck board to create the perfect-sized top rail for relaxing and entertaining.

NOTE: DeckMart offers three lines of TimberTech Classic Series railing: Premier, Radiance, & Drink Railing. The only difference between these three lines is the top rail. The railing section itself is identical for all three lines. This design simplifies installation and purchasing – thank you TimberTech!

Get started with the simple steps below to purchase your TimberTech railing deck supplies.

We strongly recommend following the TimberTech Classic Series Railing installation guide for best results.

Step 1: Select TimberTech Railing Kits

Choose your colour

Start your railing order by selecting the desired colour. 
  • TimberTech Classic Series Drink railing is available in two colours: White & Black

Determine the number of sections

TimberTech railing is available in 6' and 8' sections. 
  • Make a drawing of your deck and determine how many TimberTech railing sections you will need. 
  • Try to make all railing sections on a row the same size. (For 20 feet of railing, create four 5' sections with 6’ rails or three approximately 7' sections with 8' rails – rather than 6', 6', 8')
  • Section length is measured from the center of the post to the center of the post. Therefore, the actual size of 6' or 8' sections will be slightly less than six or eight feet.

Determine the number of Universal Bottom Rails

  • For the drink rail, you will purchase stand-alone TimberTech Universal Bottom Rails instead of the regular top rail
  • One section of railing = one Universal Bottom Rail
  • Order the same quantity of TimberTech Universal Bottom Rails as the number of sections in your deck railing.
  • The decking board (top rail in this case) should be installed (face-screwed) on the top of the Universal Bottom Rail. 
  • Use Starborn Pro Plug System for no-show screw installation.
  • Please note that TimberTech decking boards with scalloped profiles or grooves do not qualify as a top rail for the drink rail design. 


Which rail kit is right for me?

  • If you choose a TimberTech Classic Series Universal Rail kit, skip Step 3, since these kits include composite balusters. 
  • TimberTech "Laser etched" Universal Rail Packs are designed to be used ONLY with aluminum baluster infill, glass infill, and cable railing.
  • TimberTech Universal Rail Packs are designed to be used ONLY with composite baluster infills.

  • Please note that these are TimberTech post sleeves and must be installed over 4x4 lumber posts or TimberTech Railing Secure Mount Posts (see Step 4).
  • For a clean, seamless look, choose TimberTech post sleeves, caps, and skirt deck supplies of the same colour.

Step 3: Balusters

Step 3: Balusters

TimberTech Classic Series railing balusters are available in Black and White.
The baluster size determines the height of your TimberTech railing. 
  • Use 29" balusters for 36" railing
  • Use 31" balusters for 36" railing (with less than 2” gap between deck & bottom rail)
  • Use 35” for 42” railing 
  • Use 37” for 42” railing (with less than 2” gap between deck & bottom rail)
Refer to your local building codes to determine the required railing height.
The following requirements apply in Ontario:
  • If the deck/porch height is above-grade 5' or more, your handrail should be 42" high (from the deck surface).
  • If the deck/porch height is less than 5' above-grade, your handrail should be 36" high (from the deck surface).
  • If the deck/porch height is less than 2' above-grade, a railing is not required.
