Designing Handrail or Wood Railing with Cable Infill

There are eight considerations in designing a railing with cable in-fill:

  1. Construction and location of your end post
  2. Configuration of any corners in your design
  3. Location of intermediate posts
  4. Location of additional cable supports
  5. Cable diameter to use spacing of cables on end post
  6. Whether to cut cables and put fittings on in the field or use factory cut cables
  7. Selection of appropriate hardware

These issues are addressed in our publication “Designing a Wood Railing With Cable as In-Fill” Wood Railing Section
