We recommend only 1×19 construction, type 316 stainless steel cable for cable railing applications. 1×19 strand cable is engineered to hold static loads without stretching, and it is relatively stiff. Other cable constructions are not recommended because of their elevated levels of stretch and lower breaking strengths in comparison to 1×19 construction.
Cable Diam: 1/4"
Minimum Breaking Strength: 6900 lbs
