CableRail Kit for Feeney DesignRail®
CableRail is an attractive and low maintenance railing option for homes and light commercial projects. This standard 1/8 inch CableRail Kit is made from durable 316 stainless steel cable which creates an attractive and virtually invisible railing with unimpaired views.
Each kit includes one strand of the desired length of cable in 1/8 in diameter. Also included are one pre-attached Threaded Terminal fitting, one Quick-Connect® SS fitting, and one stainless steel Snug-Grip® washer nut.
To cover washer nuts and Quick-Connects, choose from a variety of end caps including colored or stainless steel options (sold separately). Tools DecksDirect recommends to get the job done quickly and easily are: CableRail Cable Cutter, CableRail Lacing Needle, Cable Tensioning Tool for Cable Rail and CableRail Release Tool (all sold separately).
Will CableRail pass code?
Building code varies by location, it is best to check with your local building department before installing or updating your deck.
How far apart should I space my cables?
It is recommended spacing cables no more than 3 inches apart. The International Building Code states that a 4-inch sphere cannot pass through any opening in your railing, and since cable is non-rigid, the flex of the cable must be taken into account.
How far apart should I space my posts?
It is recommended to have a post or intermediate picket at least every 3 feet. This combined with cables spaced 3 inches apart, enables the cables to be tensioned such that they won't open past the 4-inch sphere code requirement.
Your installation could be delayed if you are unable to disconnect a cable from a Quick-Connect® fitting! We strongly recommend adding a Release Tool to every Feeney CableRail order!
