Description: Ithaca Style stainless steel cable railing.
Our customer in the quaint village of Ogunquit, Maine had a modern, minimalist style home the picturesque small harbor and an incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean. This customer was a retired fashion designer and was very intent on creating clean lines with cable railing to complement the simplicity of her oceanfront home design. Choosing our Ithaca Style cable railing with the thinnest, most transparent design maximized the view. We fabricated the deck railing posts and top rail from Type 316 Marine Grade stainless steel. All parts were precision machined from solid stock (no thin wall tubing). The stainless steel cables work great with ocean views as they have a way of blending into the water so that they seem to disappear. This was just the perfect choice for maintaining this breathtaking view, complementing the contemporary home design, and overcoming the challenges of the salt water environment. The top rail was welded and polished to create a seamless look throughout the railing’s design. True to a minimalist style, the customer required the decking boards to run the full length of the deck with no splices in the deck boards or exposed nails. Therefore, the IPE decking was fastened with IPE Clip hidden deck fasteners. The final look is seamless, simple and clean. A great spot to sit and admire the rugged Maine coastline.
