(GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, NJ) United States, May 27, 2016 – RDI proudly announces the launch of its new railing configuration app, RDI Railing Designer™, created to make virtual railing designing and material take-offs quick and easy. The app is currently available for iPad and IPad Air and can be downloaded from the iTunes store free of charge, or simply launched from a PC or Mac using your web browser.

RDI’s railing designer app offers users complete up-to-date product information and the ability to incorporate any preloaded or user-defined custom deck design with all of the RDI railing products, including seamless mixing and matching across railing product lines. The app features superior graphics, an interactive 3D workspace, and the ability to generate a materials list. For licensed RDI Pro Contractors*, there is a feature that allows on-the-spot quote creation.

According to Chris Terrels, VP of RDI 2-Step Distribution, “The RDI Railing Designer app is unlike any designer app on the market today. It makes designing your custom deck railing simple, and connects the user to qualified installers and accurate pricing. It’s simple and intuitive for the homeowner to use, and an incredible time-saving tool for the RDI Pro contractor. AND it’s fun to use.”

Users can create customized railing configurations using pre-set backgrounds, using an image of their own existing deck, choose and switch between product lines, add accessories, and generate a materials list. RDI Pro Contractors have the ability to generate a materials list which will show the contractor’s cost, and then quickly produce a professional, personalized, instant quote for their customer.

*RDI Pro Contactors are contractors who have signed up and been approved as an RDI “partner” in our RDI Pro rewards program. See for more information.
