Picture this: you’ve finally created the outdoor space of your dreams. You have rolling hills to your left, a gorgeous scenic waterway to your right, and stunning foliage all around you. That is, until you put up a fence – at which point you find yourself staring at pickets, railing, or dirty glass panes. Enter cable fencing, our newest product line designed to provide the security of a fence while allowing you to relish your view. So, what are the benefits of a cable fence?
What Are the Benefits of a Cable Fence?
What Is a Cable Fence?
Picture a traditional railing or fencing system. Most traditional railings have balusters, which are the vertical posts that help support the top rail. A cable fence simply replaces traditional balusters with thin, discreet stainless steel cable. That cable is usually made from stainless or galvanized steel, and it varies in thickness. This attractive, affordable fencing option is virtually maintenance-free, creating a nearly invisible boundary to protect your property and everyone in it.
Cable Fencing Lets You Focus on Your View
If your property is located near a scenic view, you’ll want to take full advantage of that – so imagine how frustrating it might feel if your fencing system blocks out the view entirely! Cable fencing is a perfect alternative for railings and perimeter fencing. The cables are incredibly sturdy, but they’re also thin enough to allow for full visibility in your outdoor space.
Cable Fencing Is Secure
True, cable fencing is a decorative addition to any property, with a wide variety of colors and styles available. But it’s also practical, creating enough security for sidewalks, backyards, and even high-rise decks. Since the cables are typically made of steel, they won’t bend or break when put to the test. These cables are also weather-tough, requiring very little maintenance regardless of climate. This makes cable fencing an excellent alternative to traditional wood fencing, especially if you live in an area with frequent rain or snow.
Cable Fencing Features Attractive, Durable Powder Coating
When you’re outfitting your outdoor space, curb appeal is key. Fortunately, our cable fencing is available in 12 standard colors, and custom colors are available by request. Unlike traditional paint, powder coating is highly weatherproof, creating an additional protective layer atop your fence. Cable fencing is also a great option for contemporary home exteriors, with highly customizable post options ranging from wood to steel. Ultimately, your cable fence should look great while still allowing you to focus on your property’s scenic views.

So, what are the benefits of a cable fence? From high visibility to sturdiness and customizability, cable fencing is the hottest new trend in exterior railings – and with good reason.
