Cable Railing Preserves View with Modern Look

 In Architectural Railings, Cable Railing System

To achieve an unobstructed view with a fresh, up-to-date look, consider a cable railing system for your balcony, stairwells and walkways. Cable railings are clean, neat and sophisticated. They are structurally sound, sustainable, and a great choice for that contemporary look that will impress!

Painted aluminum,  stainless steel, and galvanized steel are the most common metals used for the posts and top rails on cable railing. Our project managers are experienced at offering the best option in metal to be used for the specific application. We provide collaborative design for hitting budgets and schedules while maintaining the vision of the customer. Posts can be floor mounted or fascia/side mounted. Fascia mount posts are recommended to maximize deck space. Options for posts include square tube and flat bar. Also, these can be accompanied with a wide array of top rail options for a fully-customized look.

Cable railing systems maintain easier snow removal than the traditional barriers and there’s virtually no requirement for periodic cleaning. Cable railings are much more bird-friendly than glass railing systems and are unique because of the sleek, modern look this railing style offers.


Indoor Cable Railing on Stairway

“FastRailing” is Astro Engineering & Manufacturing’s newest product currently being field tested. This is a minimalist cable railing featuring a patented in-post fastening system for easy install and virtually invisible hardware. This will be available for light commercial and residential applications.

Several “FastRailing” style railings are currently installed on balconies, decks and stairs, and we are expecting release of the fully engineered, prefabricated system to be available within a year. Cable railing can be a cost-effective option, especially when compared to other custom fabricated railing systems. With a cable railing system, it is low maintenance and sustainable. There is less welding, less infill material, and it’s an easy installation than other railing systems. The knowledge and experience of our project managers provide problem solving and solutions to complex-scope projects others won’t do!

Preserve your view! If you would like to have a minimally obstructed view of the golf course, woods, mountains, city, lake, kids playing in the back yard, etc., cable rails are recommended if the view is important. Each job has a dedicated project manager who works closely with the customer and the shop to ensure timely and accurate product deliveries. Our customer service awards testify to that!
