** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete the Infill option in the next two paragraphs that does not apply. There are three ways to specify the cabling for CLEARVIEW Stainless Steel Cable Railing Systems. OPTION 1: The cable comes in rolls of approximately 100 feet. You will need cable cutters and a crimper to attach the fittings to the ends. Cutters and crimpers are available for rent or purchase through AGS. OPTION 2: The cable comes in lengths approximately six inches longer than required for their designated run. This allows for easier handling and sorting. A fitting is attached at one end. You will need to trim the cable and attach one fitting. Cutter and Crimper are required. OPTION 3: The cable comes cut to length with the fittings attached at both ends. No cutter or crimper is required UNLESS you have a stair run. Because stair fittings are bent, they will not pass through the holes in the intermediate posts. For this reason, stair cable runs can only be delivered as option 1 or option 2.

EXAMINATION AND PREPARATION
If preparation is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect in writing of deviations from manufacturer's recommended installation tolerances and conditions.
Do not proceed with installation until substrates have been properly prepared and deviations from manufacturer's recommended tolerances are corrected. Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
Commencement of installation constitutes acceptance of conditions.
Install railing system plumb, level, and true and in accordance with manufacturer's installation instructions and recommendations.
Do not tighten the cables more than what is necessary to eliminate any sag.
Provide anchorage devices and fittings to secure to in-place construction to adjacent construction. Separate dissimilar materials with bushings, grommets or washers to prevent electrolytic corrosion.
Do not cut components, except for cable as required for installation, or abrade component finishes. Field touch-up of finishes only acceptable if done as per manufacturer's recommendations. Return components with damaged finishes to shop for required alterations according to manufacturer's return policy, followed by complete refinishing or provide new components.
Secure mounting brackets to building structure in a positive manner using manufacturer recommended reinforcement and anchorage methods for substrate conditions. Locate brackets and hardware at spacing required to support structural loads.
Installation of railing system shall be rigid and secure, installed by mechanics experienced in erection of architectural metal. Mounting hardware shall be drawn up tightly. Rails shall be set plumb and aligned.
