How do I drill my metal handrail?

Drilling a metal handrail is not as hard as it sounds. It just requires the correct tools and method. To start, make sure you have a good drill bit designed to drill metal. There are a variety of options. Cobalt steel drill bits are great for tougher stainless steel. With aluminum it's not as difficult, although a super heated drill bit can cause issues. When drilling stainless steel (or any metal) it is best to have a lubricated drill bit. There are a lot of options for drill bit lubricant or cutting oils as well. When drilling steel, one of the lesser known facts is to go slow. Drilling creates a lot of friction and therefore heat, and when heated, stainless steel begins to harden and becomes more difficult to drill. Taking breaks and continuing to use oil can help prevent this.

Hickory or Walnut may be a good choice for you. Or rather, are you seeking something that is more single-toned and consistent? Hard Maple or Oak may be a good fit.

For example, a 36" tall angled run to a perpendicular 39" tall level run.

For example, a 36" high angled run to a 36" high level run. An "H" Post is used when you are making that transition from a shorter angled to run to a taller level run. For example, a 36" tall angled run to a 39" tall level run.

Can I use another size cable with your components?

No, our components are precisely engineered to work specifically with our 5/32" cable.

No, most companies fittings are designed for a different sized cable, or even a different quality of stainless steel cable. Even when customers use a "cheaper" 5/32" cable they found, the quality is usually lacking and the cable stretches. Similarly, our fittings are specifically designed to fit within our 2" x 2" posts and their subsequent wall thickness.

What are the longest runs of cable I can do?

This depends on the kits used. For any run with a "Level Tension Kit to Level Tension Kit" connection, 50' is the longest run recommended for optimal strength. If you have an "Inside Post Mount Kit to Level Tension Kit" run, 30' is the longest recommended length. If you have an "Angle Tension Kit to Angle Tension Kit" run, 30' is the longest recommended length.

Which way does a C Post face?

A "C" Post is either labeled as a Left or Right. Because they appear to be interchangeable they are often misplaced. However, on each "C" Post there are holes for a Level Tension Kit, and holes for a Keyount Kit. Typically, the Keymount Kit should be "pointing" towards the shortest run. Another way to remember this would be if you are standing on a deck, facing the corner post and the Keyount Kit cable run is going to your right, it is a "C" RIght Post. Here is an example. You are on a U shaped deck facing outwards. There is an 8' run on your left, a 12' run in front of you, and an 8' run on your right. The corner post on your left should be a "C" Left, and the corner post on your right should be a "C" RIght. This allows the longest middle run to have tension kits on either end. Keep in mind you cannot have two keymount kits running to each other as there won't be a way to tension that run.

What size cable do you use?

Our cable is 5/32" in diameter.

Why won't the cable fit through my angled holes?

If you have provided the accurate angle to us for the post manufacturing and the cable still won't fit easily, try taping on our "guide pin" that comes in the installation kit to the end of the cable. Usually you can easily pass this through the hole and pull the cable through. If for some reason this is still not working, likely you have a steeper than average angle. If this is the case, then you may have to grab a 5/16" drill bit and angle out the hole a bit. Don't over do this step, as you still want the Adhesive Sleeve to cover your hole.

How far apart are the cables?

Our cables are spaced out 3 1/8" on center. When using a 4' spacing between posts, this keeps your gaps code compliant.

How do you single post corners?

We are able to turn a corner using a "C" Post, which utilizes two hardware kits inside the post. The "KeyMount Kit" locks to the inside of the post and takes up minimal space, while the "Level Tension Kit" runs through the post on a perpendicular line. Each hole is at the same height location, so the cable runs do not need to be offset.

Can I go around 135 degree corners with cable?

Yes, you can usually turn a 135 degree corner. This is a project specific situation, and it's typically best to work with one of our sales representatives to make sure it will work. We recommend double posting this corner to help make a smooth transition. It is also recommended that you only attempt to do this turn if there are level tension kits on each end of the run, and that the run is no longer than 40' total.

Which way does a C Post face?

A "C" Post is either labeled as a Left or Right. Because they appear to be interchangeable they are often misplaced. However, on each "C" Post there are holes for a Level Tension Kit, and holes for a Rod Anchor Kit. Typically, the Rod Anchor Kit should be "pointing" towards the shortest run. Another way to remember this would be if you are standing on a deck, facing the corner post and the Rod Anchor Kit rod run is going to your right, it is a "C" RIght Post. Here is an example. You are on a U shaped deck facing outwards. There is an 8' run on your left, a 12' run in front of you, and an 8' run on your right. The corner post on your left should be a "C" Left, and the corner post on your right should be a "C" RIght. This allows the longest middle run to have tension kits on either end.

How do you single post corners?

We are able to turn a corner using a "C" Post, which utilizes two hardware kits inside the post. The "Rod Level Anchor Kit" locks to the inside of the post and takes up minimal space, while the "Level Tension Kit" runs through the post on a perpendicular line. Each hole is at the same height location, so the rod runs do not need to be offset.

Can I go around 135 degree corners with rods?

Yes, you can usually turn a 135 degree corner. This is a project specific situation, and it's typically best to work with one of our sales representatives to make sure it will work. With rods, it requires on-site bending and is reliant on the installer to do. Some customers choose to pre-bend the rods and slot them through the post, and others will mount the post and bend the rod against the post holes to make the turn. Rods are a little trickier than cable to make a single 135 degree turn.

杆是否通过楼梯顶部的g或h张贴?

For each project we build custom crates specifically to transport glass directly to you. With the correct padding and crate construction, it's easy to consistently ship glass safely.

Is glass safe?

Yes, absolutely. There is an enormous difference between the production process for a glass cup compared to a glass railing panel. There's a reason so many commercial, high traffic buildings have glass railing. Glass typically yields the strongest test results out of any railing.

How can you make glass to fit my project?

We ship out glass projects everyday. Before we start the engineering process for a glass order, we ship to you to scale Acrylic Templates. Using the double sided tape we send, you simply mount the templates in place where you want your glass ends, measure the outside to outside, and write it down for us. We take those measurements, have our engineering team plug them into a custom coded generator, and out pops your glass dimensions. These are then reviewed by your Glass Tech Representative and yourself. Once you both are comfortable with the drawings, we begin production.

How can I move the glass panels?

With each glass project, we send out an installation kit that include glass moving clamps. These are high strength suction cups that attach to the glass panel. Because panels are generally around 4' wide, they can be moved with these clamps. It may be good to have a partner help with the move.
