Cable railings are a cost-effective, low-maintenance alternative to wood and metal railings. Cable railings are guardrails and handrails. Using horizontal cables instead of traditional infill such as spindles or mesh. Commercial uses for cable railing offer many benefits.
First, cable railings are a safe alternative to traditional metal and wood railing. The materials used to build cable railings are strong and durable. Thus, making the rail systems structurally safe. Secondly, a cable fence is chic and easily complements many different types of properties. It blends well with both contemporary and traditional settings. Above all, the railings are easy to install and maintain. To keep your cable railing tight and in good shape, all you need is periodic cleaning and wrenching.
Common Commercial Uses for Cable Railing
Wondering how to use cable railings to boost your commercial property? The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. You can use cable railings to;
- Mark off your commercial perimeter
If you’re looking to specify the boundaries of your commercial property, cable railing is an excellent solution. Solid walls are great for security, while glass railings offer beauty. However, solid walls also block the property’s view and, by doing so, could block out many potential customers.
Glass railings, on the other hand, are expensive and require a lot of work to install and maintain. Cable railing is the perfect compromise. Not only do you get a see-through railing system that allows visitors to spot your beautiful offices from afar but also a secure structure that’s easy to install and maintain.
- Natural connection of spaces indoors and outdoors
Thanks to its sleek, streamlined appearance, cable railing allows spaces to flow into each other naturally – the result is a continuous flow that’s impossible to achieve with other forms of rail infill. This makes a cable railing the perfect choice for framing an eye-catching panoramic view.
You should, for instance, choose cable railings for a terrace as it optimizes the view. This is especially important for brands looking to create an impression from the moment a client walks through the gate. The railings can have a similar effect indoors. Rather than visually breaking up spaces, cable railing helps to connect them and helps to make spaces appear bigger.
- Complement your architecture
Cable railing is also compatible with most architectural styles, ranging from rustic to traditional to contemporary. If you’re struggling to think of a railing system to complement your architecture, cable railing is an option for you.
It is easy to install and can be used with existing metal, wood, and composite railings to achieve your desired style. Many people, for instance, often feel that concrete slabs don’t blend well with a wooden railing. Cable railings work exceptionally on concrete platforms. Stainless steel cable railings can create a sophisticated appearance that looks stunning on concrete surfaces.
- Advance your open-plan office initiatives
Finally, cable railings can advance open-plan office initiatives. The modern office design is an open space that inspires collaboration. Rather than concrete walls that employees can’t see through, modern, open-plan offices employ obstruction-free spaces. Additionally, transparent glass walls allow employees to work together on projects to boost productivity.
The “see-between-the-lines” nature of cable railings create a feeling of openness in large offices. While traditional railings make spaces feel closed and separate from each other, cable railings remove the barriers, creating a nearly unimpeded view.
