Cable for Cable Railing

The most common construction of cable for cable railing is 1x19 Stainless steel type 316. We offer many other lays for other applications, but the 1x19 works best for railing applications. The cable can be ordered in 1/8” and 3/16” diameter. We also offer black stainless cable in the 1/8” size only (same breaking strength as the regular stainless).
