This type of stainless steel cable is stiff and smooth, and really is most popular for use on cable railing, both residential and commercial projects. Because it is smooth, it does not snag on hands and clothing once installed. Additionally, it leaves behind no residue or grease, so it won't stain or otherwise damage clothing. This cable is not commonly used for slings or general rigging, but it does have relevance in both marine, food and wastewater applications. If you are working on a cable railing project and you need help sourcing fittings, just let us know, we can get them for you. If you would like to place a large order, or if you have any other questions, please, Contact Us for a custom quote.
