Loft cable railing with steel panels

Our Downtown Lee's Summit Main Street association moved recently. Their new home called for railings up to and around a loft storage space. We wanted to create a cool railing system, one that was functional and unique. One of their employees came up with the idea to showcase the downtown street grid in the railing. Great idea! So, off to the shop we went. Here is the result:

A simple cable railing and matching handrail make going up and down safe and easy.

Each panel had a different view of the downtown street grid.

We used expanded metal sheeting to cover the large openings in the railing panels. It adds a nice industrial touch.

Simple and budget-friendly eye hooks, turnbuckles and cable made for a good solution on the stair railing.
