Cable railings - WikipediaThe reason for post spacing is more about the cable end fittings' machine thread loading capacity (how much tension can be put on the threads before they fail), than anything else. The more cable drop in the middle, the more weight on the tensioning device, ergo the more load on the threads. Proof strength must be greater than load. Cable Diameter and Properties: The next variable is the diameter of the cable. Cables can be any wire rope, which meets load strength requirements by ...
