The Ultra-Tec Cable Railing System was created to meet the need for more suitable mounting and tensioning hardware for use in pedestrian cable railings than was available from conventional sources. Heretofore, the only fittings available for cable railings were those designed and manufactured for other purposes. Often the only choices were turnbuckles and mounting devices with exposed threads, nuts, cotter pins, dust collecting crevices and other unattractive features. In addition to providing attractive, especially designed hardware and fittings, The Cable Connection will assist the architect, contractor or fabrication shop in every aspect of providing a custom styled railing system using cable as the in-fill. Our services include design, layout, estimating, fabrication, finishing, and installation assistance.
