  2. Reference your estimation layout sheet to mark your posts and fascia board.
  3. Prepare and install your posts using mounting bolt assemblies and standoff spacers.
  4. Measure and cut the handrail to its final dimensions.
  5. Attach the post-to-post mounting brackets.
  6. Loosen the bolts securing the bottom post of the railing and work the handrail in between the top and bottom posts.

Cable Railing Kits (4:07)
Learn about the different cable railing kits we offer here at Stainless Cable & Railing Inc.

These kits bundle together cable and fittings, allowing for simple and straightforward purchasing of cable railing infill. Turn any railing frame into a cable railing using these pre-packaged kits!

Variable length kits (10ft, 20ft, 30ft, 40ft, 50ft) include a cut of cable and set of fittings. One of the fittings is pre-attached to the cable here in our shop to make your installation faster and more streamline. The 1000ft, or “Full Deck,” kits contain 1000ft of cable, 50 sets of attachment hardware, installation tools, and maintenance products; everything you need for a standard 3-4 run deck railing. End fittings kits bundle attachment hardware together without cable, and are often chosen by customers who already have their cable or need a lot of fittings.

How To Tension Cable Railing (2:27)
This video details the necessary steps to make a swaged (or crimped) cable railing connection.

Steps completed before filming:
  1. Doing one section at a time, measure overall length from outside face of beginning post to outside face of ending post, then add an extra 3”.
  2. Using the measurement from step 1, unroll cable and cut to length.
Steps demonstrated in video:
  1. Attach either a Field Tensioner or a Field Terminal to one end of the cable using the Crimper.
  2. Push the crimped fitting through the drilled hole of the beginning post and secure with hardware.
  3. Lace the raw cut end of the cable through all intermediate posts.
  4. Determine final cut length of cable and cut it. Attach second end fitting and secure with hardware.
  5. Tension the cable, remove the excess threading and finish attaching end hardware.
  6. Passivate the cables and other exposed stainless steel surfaces to keep them clean and protected from corrosion.
