Cable Railing

Currently viewing cable railing info.

"A" Post

A - Cable Post ConfigurationA - Rod Post Configuration

"A" posts are used to begin or end level railing runs with tension kits.

Cable railing "A" posts use "Level Tension Kits" to create tension.

"A-2" Post

A-2 - Cable Post Configuration

"A-2" posts are used only on level, intermediate cable railing posts.

These are pass-through posts with 1/2" holes on both sides. "Steel Insert Sleeves" are tapped into each hole on site. The sleeves provide a clean look and keep the cable from rubbing against the post.

"A-5" Post

A-5 - Cable Post ConfigurationA-5 - Rod Post Configuration

"A-5" posts are level, intermediate posts that do not have any hardware.

Signature cable railing "A-5" posts have 5/16" holes on both sides with a 5/32" cable passing through, leaving a slight gap between the hole and the cable.

"B-5" Post

B-5 - Cable Post ConfigurationB-5 - Rod Post Configuration

"B-5" posts are angled, intermediate posts.

Signature cable railing "B-5" posts have 5/16" holes on both sides with a 5/32" cable passing through. To prevent the cable from rubbing against the post, cable "B-5" posts use "Steel Adhesive Sleeves" around each 5/16" hole.

"B-UP" Post

B-Up _ B-Dn - Cable Post ConfigurationB-Up & B-Dn - Rod Post Configuration

"B-UP" posts are angled end posts that provide tension at the beginning of an angled run.

Cable "B-UP" posts use "Angled Tension Kits" through offset holes. You can identify a "B-UP" post by looking for 1/2" holes on the lower set and 5/16" holes on the higher set.

"B-DOWN" Post

B-Up _ B-Dn - Cable Post ConfigurationB-Up & B-Dn - Rod Post Configuration

"B-DOWN" posts are angled end posts that provide tension on an angled run.

Cable "B-DOWN" posts use "Angled Tension Kits" through offset holes. You can identify a "B-DOWN" post by looking for 5/16" holes on the lower set and 1/2" holes on the higher set.

"C" Post

C - Cable Post ConfigurationC - Rod Post Configuration

"C" posts are used to join two level railings into one corner post.

Cable "C" posts use an "Inside Post Mount" to end a run, and a "Level Tension Kit" to start a new, perpendicular run on the same plane. The hardware from the two separate runs of cable is hidden inside the post to make it look as if there is only one cable.

"D" Post

D - Cable Post ConfigurationD - Rod Post Configuration

"D" posts are used to join an angled railing with a level railing of the same height into a 90° corner.

Cable "D" posts run an "Angle Tension Kit" and a "Level Tension Kit" through the post to start a new, perpendicular run on the same plane. Although there are two runs of cable in one post, the angled and level hardware do not interfere with each other. Angled holes have a 5/16" hole on the lower set, and 1/2" holes on the upper set. Level holes are 1/2" on each side.

"F" Post

F - Cable Post ConfigurationF - Rod Post Configuration

"F" posts are used to end level runs without utilizing a tension kit. They have a 5/16" hole on one side of the post.

Cable "F" posts use an "Inside Post Mount" to lock to the inside of the post. This type of post is used when there is not enough space behind the post to use an Allen wrench. Since this cable hardware does not take tension, the opposite end of the level run will require a "Level Tension Kit."

"G" Post

G - Cable Post ConfigurationG - Rod Post Configuration

"G" posts are used to transition from an angled run to a level run of the same height without turning.

Cable "G" posts have offset, 5/16" holes through each side of the post for the cable to continuously run through.

"H" Post

H - Cable Post ConfigurationH - Rod Post Configuration

"H" posts are used to transition from an angled run to a taller level run without turning.

Cable "H" posts have offset 5/16" holes through each side of the post for the first 10 runs of cable to run through. Since the level run of cable is taller, an additional run(s) of cable will begin using "Inside Post Mount Kits."

"I" Post

I - Cable Post ConfigurationI - Rod Post Configuration

"I" posts are used to join an angled run with a taller level run at a 90° corner.

Cable "I" posts run an "Angle Tension Kit" and a "Level Tension Kit" through the post to start a new, perpendicular run on the same plane. Although there are two runs of cable in one post, the angled and level hardware do not interfere with each other. The angled holes have a 5/16" hole on the lower set of holes and 1/2" holes on the upper set. The level holes are 1/2" on each side.

"J Up" Post

J-Up _ J-Dn - Cable Post ConfigurationJ-Up & J-Dn - Rod Post Configuration

"J-UP" posts are used to start runs at the bottom of the stair without using a tension kit.

Cable "J-UP" posts have 5/16" holes on the stair side of the post and use "Inside Post Mounts." Since there is not tension on this post, an "Angle Tension Kit" is required on the other end of the run. This post type is used to create a finished post face, when desired.

"J Down" Post

J-Up _ J-Dn - Cable Post ConfigurationJ-Up & J-Dn - Rod Post Configuration

"J-DOWN" posts are used to end runs at the top of a staircase without using a tension kit.

Cable "J-DOWN" posts have 5/16" holes on the stair side of the post and use "Inside Post Mounts." Since there is not tension on this post, an "Angle Tension Kit" is required on the other end of the run. This post type is used to create a finished post face when desired, or if there is not enough space between the post and a structure to use an Allen wrench.

"R" Post

R - Cable Post ConfigurationR - Rod Post Configuration

"R" posts have a three-sided foot plate, and mount to a structure on one side. They are used to end level runs without using a tension kit.

Cable "R" posts use an "Inside Post Mount" to lock to the inside of the post. This post is mounted to both a wall or structure, and the floor. Since this cable hardware does not take tension, the opposite end of the level run will require a "Level Tension Kit."

"S" Post

S - Post ConfigurationS - Post Configuration

"S" Posts are blank posts most often used as the hinge post of a gate, or just to fill space.
