Cable

A sleek and contemporary cable rail system.

The minimalist look of sleek, horizontal cable railing - in place of traditional vertical balusters - is like a breath of fresh air for your deck. Use our cable railing with ALX Pro and various wood railing options. The 3mm stainless steel cable is corrosion and rust resistant and works with swageless fittings and hardware. For care and maintenance tips, see our Cable Railing blog post.

Installation Instructions

FAQ

Use warm water and mild soap when cleaning. Avoid harsh solutions or abrasive cleaning materials, including but not limited to: alkaline or acidic cleaners or solutions containing trisodium phosphate, phosphoric acid, hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, fluorides or similar compounds. Avoid using power-cleaning tools. Clean the fittings and cable after installation and every 6 months thereafter.

We recommend a new 5/8" chrome-plated socket to protect the fitting from raw steel. Avoid installing with rusty tools, as they leave rust deposits on the surface of the fittings almost immediately. After installation, it is critical to clean the system completely with a stainless cleaner and a soft clean rag in order to clear the surface from carbon deposits. For more information, refer to the Cable Railing Installation Instructions.
