US Cargo Control Launches New Line of Cable Railing Products

US Cargo Control has launched a new line of cable railing products made of galvanised steel and stainless steel. These railings are more popularly known as deck railings or aircraft railings. Though these railings are commonly used as guidelines around docks and stair railings, they can also be used for other applications such as sailboat rigging, garage doors and exercise equipment.

Ben Rechkemmer, VP Purchasing and Logistics, stated that the company is manufacturing the railings in 7X19 constructions, which means that the railings consist of 7 groups of 19 wires. This construction gives the railings a greater level of flexibility and strength and at the same time maintains a narrow profile. This construction is particularly useful where it is necessary to keep a clear view of areas such as docks, stairs, porches and decks. The railings are available in the form of 304 galvanised wire and 316 stainless steel wire so that customers can use them outdoors under any environment. While 304 galvanised wire offers more protection, 316 stainless steel wire is highly resistant to elements. The 316 stainless steel wire is also called “marine grade” which makes it ideal for usage where it is exposed to seal salt spray and other chemicals. The 304 galvanised wire comes in vinyl coated options in order to provide more protection to harmful UV rays and general wear and tear.

Other products sold by US Cargo Control include wire rope accessories that include thimbles, sleeves, clips and turnbuckles. These accessories enable customers to set up their own customised railing systems.
