Commercial Railing Installation in Berkeley
We understand the specific needs of commercial properties and can help you get the look and safety you need in a railing system. We often use larger diameter stainless steel cable for additional strength and ruggedness. This thicker cable provides additional safety and tends to look better with the thicker posts that we often need for commercial installations.

We also understand the specific needs of homeowners. If you are looking to maximize the space on your deck or walkway, we can install fascia-mounted posts that give you more space for entertaining, or accessibility. We’ll also work with you to get the exact look and feel you want from your railing.

Cable Railing Material & Design Choices
Bay Area Cable’s owner, Tom Salas, has deep knowledge of metalworking and woodworking. His fanatical attention to detail enables him to create stunning cable railing systems in wood, metal and more.
Wood Railing Installation
Incorporating wooden posts into a cable railing system provides a uniquely classic, but uniquely modern look. While other railing contractors in Berkeley try to use wooden end posts, our team knows that wooden end posts will warp over time, allowing the cables to sag. That is why why we generally use metal end posts with 4×6 or 6×6 supporting wooden posts. That setup will allow you to choose from a wider variety of woods, while also avoiding railing failure down the line.
Picket & Glass Railing Installation
Metal is a flexible material for railings. We can use metal posts to support a glass railing system or a picket railing system. Pickets provide a classic, simple look that often appeals to property owners who want their building to look good in any era. Glass railing installations are very modern and often appeal to those with elegant properties and estates.
All Metal Cable Railing
All metal cable railing systems offer a distinct, modern look, the least view obstruction, and the least maintenance of any of our options. Our metal systems are available in a variety of colors and finishes, and we can even fabricate our own systems in-house to accommodate unusual designs and layouts.
Materials We Won’t Use
There are some materials we won’t use (which is one way to tell that we have your best interests at heart.) Galvanized cable can corrode over time, and isn’t a safe investment for our clients, so we do not work with it. We also don’t install vinyl-coated cable as it breaks down and fades from exposure to the UV rays of the sun. You can trust that we won’t use subpar materials in your cable railing system.
