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 and 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 DesignRail(R) aluminum railing systems. These pre-engineered, component based systems combine the strength, durability, low maintenance and environmental integrity of aluminum with the innovative design details that ensure structural reliability, affordability and lasting beauty. Made from high strength 6000-series aluminum extrusions that can be efficiently assembled on site using pre-engineered components that snap and screw together. Available in a variety of styles and colors with tough AAMA-2604 powder coated finishes and CableRail(TM) cables, glass or picket infill options. Our products can qualify for LEED: recycled content.
