The Chicago Style Cable Railing

Chicago Cable Rail Designs

The exposed structure of our Chicago Style cable railing system was inspired by the John Hancock building. The style is ideal for decks where the decking surface does not extend over the top of the joists. It is also well suited for stair railings, decks, and balcony railings, both indoors and outdoors.

  • Chicago Style cable railings are available in 36″ and 42″ high versions as well as custom heights.
  • The railing posts can be fascia mounted or surface mounted. Custom mounting is an option as well to fit any situation.
  • We offer Chicago Style posts in double powder-coated steel, hot-dip galvanized steel, clear anodized aluminum, and brushed stainless steel.
  • We provide a custom design and rendering service to help you visualize the finished railing on your site.
  • We design custom railings to fit your unique application so they are fast and easy to install. Many railing kits look like an afterthought. We will make sure your railing looks like it was designed to be there from the beginning.
  • All our railings are designed and built by our craftsmen right here in the USA. We make every effort to source supplies from US-based companies and use recycled materials wherever possible.
