Since 1948, Feeney has been manufacturing and supplying specialty building products for design and construction professionals. Over 60 years of experience supplying thousands of projects worldwide have given us the insight and expertise to develop a diverse and innovative line of the highest quality architectural products.
Our Feeney Architectural Products line includes CableRail(TM) standard and custom cable assemblies, DesignRail(R) aluminum railings, CableTrellis(TM) cable & rod trellis systems and StaLok(R) stainless steel rod assemblies. And, of course, we continue to offer traditional industrial rigging services, fabrication and hardware.
This specification includes CableRail(TM) Standard and Custom cable assemblies. CableRail(TM)Standard Cable Assemblies are a beautifully unobtrusive, affordable, low-maintenance and easy-to-install railing infill option for residential and commercial settings. Made from 1/8 inch diameter 316 grade stainless steel cable with patented swageless Quick-Connect(R)SS end fittings that make installations a breeze. Assemblies are sold in standardized lengths that can be quickly trimmed to a finished dimension in the field. For added convenience, CableRail(TM) Standard assemblies can now be ordered on-line at www.cablerail.com.
Some projects may require special sizes and types of cable and fittings. For those unique designs, we offer a wide assortment of cables and hardware for fabricating Custom Cable Assemblies to meet your specific design and function needs. Manufactured from 316-grade stainless steel with a tumbled satin finish for weather-tough durability and lasting beauty. Order individual components and hand crimp your own assemblies or let us fabricate assemblies for you, complete and ready to install. Our experienced sales staff can assist you every step of the way.
