Benefits of Cable Railings
On our latest project we installed a cable railing system to our clients "Lanai" (aka deck/balcony) & stairs. The home has a gorgeous elevated ocean front view and the sunsets there are amazing to say the least. To take advantage of such a scenery we recommended to install a cable railing system. Due to its slim design the cable railing allows an almost invisible, unobstructed view of the outside scenery, thus enhancing the viewing experience. It also has a very attractive modern looking style that has the ability to blend in with any home design. The use of glass railing would be another great option being as it also provides for an unobstructed view and is aesthetically pleasing as well. But since this property is so close to where the rolling waves crash into the oceanfront cliffs, the resulting whitewash overspray will inevitably make contact with the glass leaving salt water spots and residue. This would require consistent wipe down & cleaning to prevent residue build up and water spots. On this home the stainless steel cable railing is the in our opinion is the best option.
Listed below are some of the benefits of utilizing a cable railing system on your home:
- Unlike glass, no need to constantly clean
- Stainless steel cable is corrosion resistant
making the area around seem more spacious
& open, adding value to your home
weight & force without breaking
- can be a safety rail as it is sturdy & supportive
any home design
