Why Use Stainless Steel For Cable Railings

Beautiful, easy-to-maintain, and durable, stainless steel for cable railings is the ideal option. Here are the advantages of stainless steel.

Stainless steel cable railings are a low maintenance and secure option for your deck, balcony or as handrails for your stairways. These cable railings also offer an unobstructed view of the surroundings. Strong and corrosion resistant cable railing systems are easy to install compared to other metal-type or wooden railing systems.  

Stainless steel cable railing systems consist of thin cables stretched horizontally between vertical posts. These allow for an expansive view of the surroundings whether standing or sitting. Stainless steel cable railings offer better ventilation than glass railing systems – also designed for enhanced viewing.

Stainless steel cable systems are effective both indoors or outdoors. These cable railings not only offer an enhanced sense of openness from your deck or other interior or exterior locations, but also complement other features in the space. 

Stainless steel and cable mounted handrails add drama and openness. Additionally, this look can complement a modern or traditional look in any space.

The Superiority of Stainless Steel 

Stainless steel railing systems are not just perfect for looking “through,” they are also beautiful to look “at”.

Available for over a century, stainless steel has become essential in medicine, construction, kitchen equipment, and many other areas where corrosion and heat-resistance are imperative. Stainless steel is an alloy mixture of steel, chromium, and zinc. This material is essential in applications where maintaining hygienic conditions is critical.

Beautiful, easy-to-maintain, and durable, stainless steel is the ideal option for cable railing systems. Here are just some of the advantages of stainless steel cable railing systems:

  • Flexibility of Style

Stainless steel cabling never looks out of place. The material fits well into traditional or contemporary designs as it can blend into any setting. The framing and top rails can be chosen to match your décor or style, while the slim cables tend to blend into the background. Dark wooden framing can match the furnishings in any room or exterior features, while metal framing can blend easily into a more modern environment.

  • Low Maintenance 

Stainless steel cable railings systems can endure extreme weather and wear. When matched with compatible fittings and connectors, stainless steel cable systems will remain beautiful and durable while wooden railings can appear dirty and even start to rot. 

Similarly, most aluminum railings systems will begin to take on a dull appearance very quickly. They can require extensive cleaning and maintenance to retain an attractive appearance. 

  • Durability

Because of the material’s extreme durability and strength, Atlantis Rail Systems offers stainless steel railings for many residential, commercial, and handicap-accessible applications. Depending on the thickness, stainless steel cables can withstand well over 2,000 lbs of stress without compromise. 

And, because the components are corrosion resistant, the cabling will last a lifetime.
