Since 1948, Feeney has been manufacturing and supplying specialty building products for design and construction professionals. Our 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 continues to expand. Our CableRail standard and custom cable assemblies include a vast array of Quick-Connect fittings, making field installation even easier. Our DesignRail® aluminum railings now include LED lighting options and the bold Express Yourself Colors. DesignRail® Kit solutions, stainless steel rod assemblies and our Trellis Collection round out our current offerings.
This specification includes CableRail Standard and Custom cable assemblies. CableRail Standard Cable Kits are a beautifully unobtrusive, affordable, low-maintenance and easy-to-install railing infill option for residential and commercial settings. Made from 316 grade stainless steel cable with automatic-locking, swageless Quick-Connect® Inset end fittings that make installations a breeze. Kits are sold in standardized lengths that can be quickly trimmed to a finished dimension in the field.
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.
