This course will examine the code and design requirements for railing systems using cable as the railing in-fill material. Information about cables, frames, and both vertical and horizontal cable railing systems will be presented along with a review of specific design considerations and applications. In addition, appropriate frame construction, spacing, and tension requirements will be discussed along with details about mounting and tensioning hardware, devices, and fittings needed to properly install cable railing systems.
