View-Friendly Cable Railings from Feeney

May 14, 2018

Have you ever sat down on a deck surrounded by beautiful scenery, hoping to take in the sights, only to discover that a chunky railing is obstructing your view? So have we.

Enter sleek, stainless steel CableRail from Feeney. The company was founded in 1948 as a rigging manufacturer and now uses its marine-grade stainless steel cables in deck railing kits designed to minimize bulk and maximize views. The cables have a slim profile that is virtually invisible, which means they’ll keep everyone safe while preserving your view.

Read on to learn more about CableRail from Feeney.

Feeney CableRail cables can be installed on the company&#8

Feeney cable railings are sold in prepackaged kits at lumber yards around the country. Each kit comes with precut cables (available in eighth-inch, three-sixteenths-inch, and quarter-inch diameters) that have a threaded terminal fitting pre-attached to one end and a field-installed fitting, which they call Quick-Connect, with special automatic-locking jaws for the other end. The cable kits come in standard lengths (from five to 70 feet, sold in five-foot increments), which eliminates the need to take ultra-precise measurements before ordering. Instead, Feeney suggests taking rough measurements and ordering a kit with slightly longer cable lengths; any excess can be trimmed during installation. To learn more about CableRail kits, including detailed instructions on how to measure, see Feeney’s CableRail Kits page.

Stainless steel CableRail cables complement a variety of post materials and finishes.

Feeney CableRail can be installed on existing wood, metal, or composite posts using the company’s proprietary, automatic-locking fittings. (The automatic lock means there’s no need for a cumbersome crimp tool.) Installation is DIY-friendly and only requires a small kit of tools you probably already have on hand: an electric drill and bits, pliers, a wrench, and a cutoff disk for trimming the cable ends.

Feeney takes Environmental Responsibility seriously: The company is a member of the US Green Building Council, and most of their products are made with metals reclaimed from manufacturing waste. Their Oakland, California, headquarters also has a 5,000-plus-square-foot solar array that can produce enough electricity to offset more than 95 percent of the facility’s electrical usage.
