Cable Railings Styles for Decks and Stairs
Our Cable Railing Styles
At Keuka Studios, we custom design and fabricate cable railings such as deck railings and stair railings. You can choose from our standard designs or work with our designers for a completely custom cable railing. We offer all of our railing systems in surface mount or fascia mount. In addition, you can customize the railing materials and finishes to fit your unique project. We also use recycled materials whenever possible.
While we design and manufacture our railings in the U.S., we can ship worldwide and have worked closely with clients in several countries. We manufacture both commercial and residential railings. Send us your architectural drawings, or just a sketch, and we will work with you to create the perfect look and feel for your railings. Using 3D CAD modeling, we create detailed drawings and realistic renderings of the finished project. This assures that your new railing will look perfect with your existing architecture.

Cable Railing Design Ideas
Carbon Steel – Powder Coated
Keuka Studios offers carbon steel posts with a powder coat finish of your choice. Our powder coating process includes a commercial-grade sandblasting, iron phosphate bath, zinc-rich primer, and two coats of the polyester top coat. We have standard powder coat color choices as well as thousands of different custom powder coat color options. Powder-coated carbon steel is the most economical option. This material and finish combination is perfectly suitable indoors or outdoors, although not recommended for oceanfront applications.
Carbon Steel – Powder Coated and Hot-Dip Galvanized
Ideal for coastal areas, hot-dip galvanizing provides excellent protection from corrosion due to humid and salty sea air. The thickness of the galvanized coating will depend on where these railings will be installed. Hot-dip galvanized and powder-coated steel is an excellent option for pool or swimming enclosures and oceanfront properties. Hot-dipped galvanized railings are a durable, low-maintenance option for marine and humid environments. Powder coating on top of galvanized steel allows you to select the color of the post. If the powder coating is ever chipped, it will be protected by the hot-dip galvanized layer underneath.
Aluminum – Powder Coated or Clear Anodized
For improved resistance to corrosion, all aluminum posts are powder coated or clear anodized. Powder coating aluminum will give you a variety of color options. Clear anodizing the aluminum requires brushing the material with a #4 brushed finish before anodizing. Clear anodized and brushed aluminum has a similar look to stainless steel for a much lower cost. Some designs are not available in aluminum.
Stainless Steel – Brushed or Polished
We offer stainless steel in a variety of stainless finishes. You can request a brushed finish (#4), fine-brushed finish (#6), matte finish (bead blast), or a mirror finish (#8). All stainless steel receives passivation to assist in corrosion protection.
