The Cable Stabilizer Kit is designed specifically for use where post to post measurement spans over 4’. It enables you to adapt longer spans to code compliancy by stabilizing the deflection of cable between posts. Each kit comes with a 42” stanchion pre-drilled to work with our standard 3” spacing. The stabilizer connector allows for a 2” round top rail to fit flush to the top of the stabilizer (requires drilling). In most cases, stanchions must be field cut at both ends for an accurate fit. The Cable Stabilizer Kit cannot be used to replace the use of substantial mid posts and should never be used in spans over 7’. Kit includes fasteners.
|CABLE STABILIZER SAFETY INFORMATION & REQUIREMENTS
Atlantis Rail Cable Stabilizers are purposed for use in maintaining code compliant cable spacing between post and rail sections with spacing greater than 4 feet between posts and not exceeding 7 feet. The Cable Stabilizer is not a structural component and is not a substitute for a post! Post and rail structure where a cable stabilizer is used should be rated and built to be structural without a cable stabilizer per building code requirements. Do not rely on the cable stabilizer to support the rail or add stability. The only function of the cable stabilizer is to maintain cable spacing. Building the railing to an appropriate code compliant structure is the sole responsibility of the user of Atlantis Rail products.
REQUIREMENTS & MAXIMUM LENGTHS FOR USING ATLANTIS RAIL CABLE STABILIZERS
RailEasy™ Nautilus System: The cable stabilizer may be used with sections up to 6 feet (between posts) if all other RailEasy™ Nautilus specifications are properly implemented.
SunRail™ Nautilus System: The cable stabilizer may be used with sections up to 6 feet (between posts) if all other SunRail™ Nautilus specifications are properly implemented.
Other Atlantis Rail Systems: Consult the manufacturers’ specifications for the length of rail that is considered structural. The cable stabilizer may be used with composite, metal, vinyl or structural wood frame systems up to the calculated code rated spacing of the system or a maximum of 7 feet, whichever is less.
