About Cable Railing

Cable Rail is mainly a series of metal wires horizontally running between rail posts. This system maintains open views, allows superior ventilation as compared to the use of glass, and creates an industrial aesthetic that complements a modern style home. Installers find cable rail the most flexible and easiest solution. When used in an interior application, it frequently is blended with wooden posts and cable rail handrails, along with stainless steel accents. On the other hand, exterior cable rail systems are most attractively used with composite posts, steel reinforced vinyl posts, aluminum or stainless steel posts.
