Conclusion

When it comes to selecting a guardrail system for interior or exterior locations on buildings, there are some specific considerations to take into account related to safety, performance, and overall design. While some traditional choices have been used for years, stainless steel cable railing systems have emerged as a clear choice with many advantages due to their inherent traits for performance, appearance, and sustainability. Specifying and designing such systems in a variety of buildings and settings is a proven, long-lasting, durable, and easy-to-maintain solution, provided the architect understands the current choices and options available from manufacturers.
