Staircases and decks can be some of the most dramatic architectural features in a home. Their rails must fall within the safety parameters set by local building codes. Thankfully, that doesn’t limit you to using bulky wood or metal spindles. One of the trends we love most right now is the use of metal cables. Typically made of steel or aluminum, metal cables are strong enough to meet safety requirements, yet airy enough to provide a relatively unobstructed view. They can be installed vertically, horizontally, crisscrossed—anything is possible as long as the spacing meets code.
Ask us about your cable system concept, and we’ll find a way to make it happen. As we say at Cates: “Yes, we can build that.”
