The protective chromium oxide film on the surface of stainless steel gives it superior corrosion resistance. Properly maintained stainless steel provides excellent luster, strength and durability. In most applications stainless steel won't rust or stain even after many years of service, but it's NOT rust or stain proof. When stainless comes in contact with chloride salts, sulfides or other rusting metals, it can discolor or even rust and corrode. With proper care and maintenance, however, stainless steel can remain beautiful and functional for years to come, even when it's exposed to marine environments, polluted surroundings, salted highways or anywhere it might be exposed to corrosive elements. Clean stainless with soap and warm water. Never clean with mineral acids or bleaches. Never leave stainless in contact with iron, steel or other metals. This can cause rust spots or corrosion. Always remove stains or rust spots as soon as possible with either soap and water or a brass, silver, stainless or chrome cleaner. Never use coarse abrasives like sandpaper or steel wool on stainless. Use synthetic Scotch pads instead. Periodically inspect cable assemblies for proper tension and re-tension as necessary. This is important. On outdoor cable installations, coat the inside of the QuickConnect SS fittings with Fluid Film Corrosion Preventative and keep end fittings covered with End Caps. This is especially important in hot and humid areas and coastal locations with salt air.
Spacing: For railings, we recommend spacing the cables no more than 3 inches apart and placing posts or vertical members no more than 3 feet apart. Load: Frames must be built strong enough to support the cable loads of approximately 350 lbs. per cable. * Securly fasten all posts and cap rails. Carefully plan all termination and corner posts for proper clearance, positioning and maximum cable run lengths.
All other posts should be sized as required for cap rail support strength or for code.
