Horizontal Cable Railing Installation

Safe and stylish glass deck railing

Keep the view

Are you enhancing your deck or balcony? Installing frameless glass railings is a good choice for anyone wanting to add a bit of class and beauty to their exterior area. Whether you are looking to modernize your current deck or install a new one, this sort of railing will surely create an impression.

Frameless glass railings are a fashionable, minimalistic, and stylish way to spruce up your deck or balcony. For our glass railings, the glass manufacturer supplies specially treated, tempered glass that is sufficiently robust to stand up to the test of time and weather.

Here, we will discuss the advantages of setting up frameless glass railing, the features of our frameless glass railing, the railing installation procedure, and maintenance tips. Read on to find out more about what frameless glass railing can do for your deck.

Advantages of Horizontal Cable Railing

You may enjoy lying in a hammock on your deck on lazy summer afternoons. Or your favorite deck activity may be sitting in front of your deck's firepit with your significant other on a chilly winter afternoon. Regardless of your favorite activity, the reason you're out on the deck is to experience the great outdoors. And the prime experience in our part of the country is to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Having an unobstructed view is important for those chilly winter afternoons while drinking hot cocoa with your significant other. Unlike vertical cables or pickets, horizontal cable railings are barely noticeable.

Even though the cables are almost unseen, they are very strong. The primary purpose of railing is for the safety of your pets, children, and guests. Horizontal cable railing has more than enough strength to provide these safety benefits. And we space the cables close together, making it difficult for children or pets to squeeze through.
You'll want your railing to be durable. We don't have to tell you that Seattle gets 150 days of rain each year. You know this. While Northern Idaho gets significantly less precipitation than Seattle when considering inches per year, it does rain, sleet, or snow on 122 days in the average year.

For these reasons, selecting the appropriate material for your railing is crucial. Our stainless steel cables consist of 11% chromium, with the remainder being iron. This composition enables them to withstand corrosion prevalent in our region, distinguishing them from other metals. Consequently, these railings require minimal maintenance compared to various other deck railing options.

Cocktail Rail

Although typically our Horizontal Cable Railing is a 3"x1" aluminum metal, you can also opt to have a composite or natural wood top rail that complements the style and color of your decking. An advantage to having a wooden or composite top rail is the temperature regulation. Incorporating a wooden top onto your cable railing system provides a warmer feel compared to metal, particularly on chilly winter days, and alleviates the heat retention typically associated with metal during hot summers. Additionally, the broader surface area of a wooden top rail offers a convenient space for placing beverages while socializing near the railing. Despite utilizing a wooden top, it's recommended to utilize metal posts for enhanced durability.
One of our salesmen will come to your property to obtain measurements of your deck or balcony. Then we order railing from our local partner based in Idaho, Maisy Railing . After installation is complete, we will perform our safety checks and your project is complete. Turn around time for horizontal cable railing installation from start to finish can be as little as 1-2 days depending on current demand.

How To Maintain Your Horizontal Cable Railing

Follow these maintenance practices to ensure that your horizontal cable railing can remain functional, safe, and visually appealing for years to come:
  • Clean the railing regularly with mild soap and water to remove dirt, grime, and debris. A soft brush or cloth can be used for scrubbing.
  • Check for any loose cables and tighten them as needed to maintain proper tension and stability.
  • Trim any vegetation that may come into contact with the railing to prevent damage and maintain clear visibility.
  • The horizontal cable railing consists of stainless steel cables and attachments, and aluminum posts and top rail, so you won't have to worry about corrosion.
