Ultra-tec Cable Railing Systems feature hardware components that were designed for architectural purposes, not adapted from a marine application. Our signature tensioning device, the Invisiware Receiver, hides inside the newel post to ensure your finished railing has the cleanest look possible.

Made of at least 65% recycled Type 316 Stainless Steel, Ultra-tec fittings are low maintenance, tamper-resistant, and proudly made in America. Your railing system will help your project qualify for LEED credits and will resist corrosion and rust the way only the highest grade stainless steel can. There is a 10-year warranty on parts.

Best of all, when coupled with our supplied Type 316 cable, you will have a strong, reliable railing system that you look right through. It wonít block the view of the action at an event venue and it wonít enclose an interior space. Airy, modern, and green, itís the railing choice for the 21st century.
