CABLE RAILINGS, DETAILS AND GALLERY
Cable railing systems are an extremely popular railing choice. They provide the least-obstructed views and are essentially maintenance-free. Apex Railing Solutions custom-fabricates interior and exterior cable railings in a variety of materials, including brushed stainless steel, mild steel, and aluminum. All our cable guardrail systems can be made to accommodate a wood top cap.
Our cable guardrail systems are fabricated using 1/8" to 3/8” diameter, 1x19, Type 316 Stainless Steel Cable. 1x19 construction cable is engineered to hold static loads without stretching, and it is relatively stiff. There are other less expensive cable constructions, such as 7x7 or 7x19, but we choose to use 1x19 because of its lower levels of stretch and higher breaking strengths, and more desirable appearance.
Comparison of Cable Types
Our cable assemblies are tensioned on one or both ends—depending on the length of the run. We use Ultra-tec® stainless steel cable railing hardware fittings and tensioners. They are designed to be sleek and attractive when you can see them, and when the design allows, their Invisiware® hardware hides inside the end posts so you can't see them.
