Note: AGS will modify standard fittings to accommodate sections of railing along stairs or ramps. The custom-angled fittings ensure cables run laterally to the slope of the stairs. Beveled Washers are another means of addressing stairs. Used on the fitting against the post, they too ensure cables and staircase pitch are parallel. No custom modifications necessary!
Cables are sent in 100′ lengths. Fittings, hex nuts and acorn nuts are bagged separately.
|Minimal assembly by AGS||Most cost-effective in terms of dollars|
|Individually packaged 100′ rolls of cable||Manageable lengths that can easily be cut to required size|
|Cables cut to required length and fittings attached on-site||Provides the most flexibility during installation and easily accommodates on-site variations in dimensions|
Cables are pre-cut to specification with a factory-swaged fitting attached at one end. For each run, simply trim any excess cable to exact length and hand-swage the second fitting onto the remaining cable end.
|Assemblies arrive bagged and labeled with precise instructions as to where they go||Easy to sort and layout prior to installation|
|Cable is pre-cut, just a bit longer than necessary||Provides easier to handle lengths than 100′ rolls and accommodates on-site variations in dimensions|
|One fitting comes attached by AGS||Reduces amount of hand swaging during installation by 50%|
Cable assemblies are shipped cut to length with both fittings attached.
Note: Any cable runs using factory-angled stair fittings, in place of beveled washers, are prepared as Option 2 (the bent fittings cannot pass through intermediate stair posts). Minor hand-swaging will be required for these sections, complimentary use of AGS Cutter/AGS Crimping tools is included where applicable.
|Assemblies are bagged and labeled according to where they go with both fittings attached||Easy to sort and layout, no on-site assembly|
|Assemblies are ready to install||Quicker installation, less labor required|
|Two fittings attached by AGS||Eliminates on-site cutting, trimming and hand-swaging* and no purchase or rental of installation tools (Cutter/Crimper) necessary.**|
- * Minimal assembly required for stair sections with modified (bent) standard fittings
- ** Complimentary tool use is included for stair sections with modified (bent) fittings requiring hand-swaging
