Cable Handrail - Design And Stair Building

A cable handrail uses a metal cable instead of wood balusters to prevent people from following through the stair handrail or guard rail. Most of these cables come in different shapes and sizes.

The most common cable used is made from stainless steel, but some of them are even made out of aluminum.

I'm starting to see more cable handrails today, than ever before. Most of them are easier to work with and can be assembled in shorter time periods than certain types of wood handrails.

I truly believe that cable handrails are here to stay. Like most construction fads, this one will probably linger around for a long time.
