Modern Railing compliments super sleek home in ConnecticutPosted by Keuka542 at November 12. 2010
When asked to build a custom cable railing for this unique home, we realized that the railing would have to be very simple, clean and unobtrusive to its environment. This is not as simple as it looks. For a cable railing to meet building codes, the cables need to be tensioned in order to prevent them from deflecting too easily and allowing a small child to climb though. The combined loads from multiple cables can place allot of stress on the end posts. A fact that is much underestimated by many designers and is at odds with the desire to make the posts as small in cross section as possible. We carefully designed the system to handle these forces while remaining true to the customers desire for clean simple lines.
