3 Reasons Why You Should Consider Using Cable Railing for Your Home's Interior
Interior cable railing systems are every bit as durable and low-maintenance as their exterior equivalent, but they are extremely versatile, not only fitting with a wide range of interior styles but even enhancing them.
By choosing a dark metallic cable and contrasting it with a rich wood frame, you can bring out the duality between natural and man-made material inherent in industrial style. Or by choosing discrete wiring and an unfished wood frame, you can invoke the rusticness of western style.
You can even decide to have the wires run vertically, rather than horizontally, and invoke a more traditional banister.
Stainless steel cabling is the most environmentally friendly material available for your railing. That's right! It's even more friendly than wood is. That is because stainless steel is completely recyclable.
In fact, the primary source of raw material for stainless steel is recycled scrap metal with over 90% of the material new stainless being sourced from recycled material (In architecture and construction, that figure is even higher, at 92%)
Have you or anyone you know ever had their head stuck in a railing as a child? Do you remember the liberal application of oil or butter needed to remedy the issue? Well, that doesn't need to be a worry with cabling. Although the cables need to be taut in order to offer protection, they do offer a little give.
But even those without children can benefit from the secure structure of interior cable railing systems, which need to be firm in order to stand up to the immense tension of the cables themselves.
While cable railing is an excellent option for the exterior of the home, it is also remarkably well suited for the inside.
