Installing horizontal cable deck railing systems is one of the best ways to maximize the space on your deck while giving it a contemporary look. With its modern, minimalistic aesthetic, you can boost the curb appeal of your deck and, at the same time, provide an unimpeded view of the beach, the mountains, or your garden. But while horizontal cable systems can undoubtedly upgrade your deck’s design, it can also be a potential safety hazard if the tension on the cable loosens. Our easy maintenance procedures will ensure proper cable tension is maintained, keeping your guardrail safe.
