StairSuppliesTM offers stainless steel cable railing by the foot for your cable railing systems project. Our 5/32″ stainless steel cable by the foot is 316 marine grade and high corrosion resistant.
Our cable comes in 1×19, which is 19 single cables wound into a single cable. When purchasing bulk footage of cable, we highly recommend using our cable railing installation kit including our cutters to give a clean cut, which allows fittings to easily slide over the ends.
