Barrington Deck Rail System

I finally caught up with the last season and had a question about the deck rail system. If you recall, there weren't any ballusters. Instead the system used horizonatl wires running post to post. Wouldn't this be a code violation as the wires could act as a ladder?

Re: Barrington Deck Rail System

technically yes, when a guardrail system has horizontal railings it becomes a ladder of sort. best bet is to check with your local building officials though as to whats accepted
