If you’re looking for an elegant modern alternative to traditional balustrading materials, cable railing is the answer. It’s perfect for injecting new life into an existing decking structure, or adding those attractive finishing touches to a new one. Whether your wire rope balustrading is for a new build or a makeover, it offers a variety of benefits and options.
So what exactly are those benefits? Let’s take a closer look.
Let’s face it, if you have a breathtaking view it deserves to be seen and enjoyed. Unfortunately traditional balustrading has a tendency to obscure those panoramic vistas. With thick posts and pickets they block views rather than enhance them. On the contrary stainless steel wire rope balustrading is designed to be thin and seamless, offering the person an uninterrupted view of their gorgeous surroundings.
Better than glass and without the disadvantages
You might be forgiven for thinking that glass panelling does exactly the same job in offering uninterrupted views. That said, stainless steel rope has great benefits over glass one of them being that it’s safer for birds. As glass is clear, birds can easily fly straight into it, often with disastrous consequences. In addition glass needs to be regularly cleaned to maintain that seamless look.
Comes in a wide range of styles
Although most people choose horizontal rope balustrading, people can also choose from vertical cabling too. This is perfect for those who enjoy the architectural aesthetic of regular vertical balustrading, or for those who simply choose to be different.
Constructed to suit most climates
The problem with wood or concrete balustrades are that they aren’t suited to all conditions. For instance, even treated wood in extreme dry conditions can crack and warp. On the contrary, stainless steel rope balustrading is designed to suit even the most harshest of climates. It won’t rust in salt air and because rope balustrading has a variety of thin strands strong winds won’t affect it.
If the fact that it’s pretty indestructible doesn’t persuade you to make a purchase, how about the fact that it’s about as low maintenance as you can get! While other materials such as wood or glass require ongoing treatment such as varnish or cleaning to keep them looking beautiful, stainless steel rope balustrading will remain in it’s new-looking state for many years to come.
