When using a 2205 Stainless Steel or Fluoropolymer Powder Coat, we are happy to provide our customers with a limited warranty on their finish up for up to 10 years! Most companies shy away from offering. However, we are confident our Fluoropolymer Powder Coat and our 2205 Brushed Stainless Steel will withstand any extreme climate.
Cable railing kits have everything you need to tension lines of cable in your system. Each hardware component is made out of 2205 duplex stainless steel, a high quality steel designed to withstand extreme coastal and corrosive environments. These kits work with both wooden and metal posts to achieve a modern railing look. You will need one kit for each end of a run of cable.
Kits use a combination of tensioning screws, barrel fittings, tension receivers, and threaded crimp fitting to mount to wooden and metal posts.
DriveTite Kit: mounts cable both inside & outside the surface of a wooden post. The cable is anchored inside and then threaded through the barrel which also sits on the outside of the post for a clean look and transition. For more information on how to install cable railing into wood posts

Angle Tension Kit: mounts angled cable by going through the entire metal post and tensioning on the outside of the post.
Keymount Kit: hides the beginning of a cable line within a metal post. Does not hold tension.
