Description: Ithaca Style cable railing on beach house's deck, ramps, balconies, screen porch, and interior stairs.
For this beach house deck, we used our Ithaca Style railing design to preserve the home’s coveted seaside view. The expansive outdoor living space includes a hot tub and multiple lounging areas that face the ocean. To keep the deck open, both for the view and the ocean breeze, our client opted for cable railing with slim anodized aluminum posts. The cable railing also runs along a ramp that leads straight to the beach. To achieve a cohesive design, we crafted cable railings for the home interior as well. This included all of the staircases and balconies within the house. Lastly, we designed a cable railing system for the screen porch. According to the residential building code, screens cannot function as a barrier.
