Boat House, Waterford, CT
Vintage Ambience for a Steamship-Styled Home
With its sleek, streamlined appearance, cable railing is sometimes thought best-suited for homes with a contemporary aesthetic. However, cable railing can work equally well with more traditional and formal architectural styles. Consider, for instance, a unique home built on a 60-foot bluff overlooking the Niantic River in Waterford, Connecticut. Perched atop the mile-wide river, the eye-catching home resembles a steamship from the 1920s.

Fowler Lake Waterfront, WI
DesignRail® Helps Transform Waterfront into an Integral Part of the Local Community
The city of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin set out to revitalize the town’s waterfront, which would involve a significant overhaul of the existing public space, including replacing the railings at the perimeter of the shoreline and adding railings to a newly constructed t-shaped fishing pier. Challenges in selecting the new railing solution included the high level of moisture on the lakefront, which could cause the railings to degrade over time.
Feeney’s DesignRail® aluminum railing system with CableRail infill and LED lighting was the best solution for this prestigious project. “Feeney’s AAMA-2604 compliant powder coating process for aluminum and their stainless steel products are great for saltwater environments, even better in freshwater applications.”
