Using Cable Railing In Public Buildings And Structures


Using cable railing in public buildings and structures: a demonstration of strength and beauty

In a single building, individuals contact many different materials —concrete, wood, steel, stone, and brick — all designed and engineered for their strength and durability, but that’s not all. Architects and designers choose materials based on performance, code compliance, cost, and beauty for a balanced and well-designed exterior and interior space.

Stainless steel cables, fittings, and hardware blend strength and beauty and offer open sightlines and safety elements. They are also precision engineered for easy installation and design flexibility making it a smart material and product choice. But how can they be used effectively and efficiently for public buildings and commercial structures?

This presentation will provide a valuable understanding of what stainless steel cables, fittings, and hardware are. And how to use them effectively in new and retrofit building and public structures — pedestrian bridges, stadiums, multifamily, golf courses, schools, office buildings, and more — using case study proof of performance. We will highlight the use of stainless-steel cables, fittings, hardware, the advantages and benefits to the architect and specifier in their building designs.
