Complete DIY Cable Railing Kits Simplify Cable Railing Installation

cable-railing-kitsCable railing’s popularity continues to grow. However, not all cable railing kits are created equal.

Installing a cable rail that meets code requirements has not been DIY friendly. In order to meet load requirements, cable fittings needed to be swaged onto the cable with special tools. With the development of swageless fittings, this has changed. Cable railing kits take those swageless fittings and package them with swaged cable rail parts to simplify the process of installing commercial-grade cable railing.

Wagner’s line of cable rail kits is produced from corrosion resistant, type 316 stainless steel cable. The cable railing kits come with hardware fittings, washers and fasteners, cable, and instructions. All cable railing kits come in lengths of 5′ to 25′ – in 5′ increments – with one tensioner and a swageless stop end. Most are available in lengths up to 50′. Kits with tensioners at both ends are available for going around corners in 30′ to 50′ lengths. With kits, you cut the cables to length on site.
