Exciting New Developments in our Cable Railing Offering

Cable railing for a deckWe are pleased to announce two exciting new developments within the Wagner Companies cable rail offering which will make cable railing projects easier and more economical going forward.

  1. Intermediate Post Spacing Increased to 48”
  2. Required tension on cable reduced to 225 lbs.

Intermediate posts/supports can now be spaced up to a maximum of 48” apart thus requiring fewer posts per overall run offering the potential for realistic project cost savings.

Reducing cable tension from 400 lbs. “Down” to 225 lbs. offers the potential for new considerations in cable post design In support of these new and exciting developments many of the existing Wagner support documents have changed.
