PalmSHIELD Releases New Product: Cable Railings

PalmSHIELD announces their exclusive architectural cable design. This design is a real architectural wonder for cable railing. PalmSHIELD utilizes a single cable design where the cable is attached at the top of the panel and then strewn back and forth over a series of spools to a final and single tensioner at the bottom. This is a much more interesting and cleaner design than traditional cable railing. It has a real architectural look for those installations that require more than a simple cable railing.

Contemporary Cable Railing

PalmSHIELD has been fabricating cable railing for almost 20 years. We know a thing or two about cable railing. We know that many cable rail installations fail over time due to the incredible amount of tension placed on the cable relative to the attachment of the termination posts. Imagine 11 cables, each tensioned to several hundreds of pounds of pull, pulling on one two-inch square post screwed down to the top of a soft cedar deck board. If you are a cable rail installer; you are cringing a little bit right now because you know what is going to happen. System failure! At PalmSHIELD, we use our traditional fully framed panels. Each panel has its own independent cable infill not dependent on site post installations.

Each cabled panel comes complete with fully installed cables. The panels and posts are predrilled, making installation simple and flawless. A traditional deck railing has at least four to five independent field installed cable runs. This installation would take several days between anchoring posts and installing almost 100 tensioners. With the PalmSHIELD system, a traditional deck railing will take less than a day and without any worries about failed posts.

PalmSHIELD cable panels are designed to be accompanied with code compliant stair grab rails or handicap ramp run rails. Stair sections are custom fabricated to account for stair landings. PalmSHIELD uses a cable stabilizer bar in the panels to support the cables along long runs. At changes in slope, a stabilizer bar will support the cables without the use of additional posts.
