E-Rigging offers many options of fittings for cable rail and ballustrade systems. All of the fittings and components we offer are made from high quality and pure grade type 316 corrosion resistant stainless steel. All of the fittings are either electro-polished or passivated for superior surface finishing. Cable rail systems typically consist of cable, termination fittings and tensioning fittings such as turnbuckles or threaded studs. Though there are a few fittings available to fit 1/4 inch cable, most all of the fittings offered at E-Rigging are designed to fit 1/8 and 3/16 stainless steel cable. We offer both hand swage fittings and swageless fittings. Hand swage fittings are less expensive than swageless fittings, but require crimping with a 20 inch Tyler Tool hand swaging tool. The swageless fittings eliminate the need for crimping and swaging tools and instead, work by using a brass sleeve that the cable end slips into and is then secured by screwing a threaded cover fitting over the brass fitting. As this is done, the brass sleeve compresses around the cable and provides a tight and secure connection.
