Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — Feeney Inc., known for their premier CableRail brand of architectural cable assemblies, presents their new line of CableRail swageless Quick-Connect® cable hardware. Feeney has taken the patented automatic-locking-jaw design of their original Quick-Connect® fitting and applied it to an entire line of cable end fittings. Now, customers that require custom assemblies can select from a wide variety of sleek and versatile cable fittings that offer the flexibility of assembling cables in the field and the simplicity, speed, and gripping power of the easy-to-use Quick-Connect® design.
Quick-Connect® fittings attach to the cable by hand in the field without special tools. Special spring-loaded one-way jaws allow the end of the cable to easily slide into the fitting and then automatically grab and lock-on when the cable is pulled back. This simple locking-jaw design makes installation very fast and easy, and if the installer makes a mistake, an easy- to-use release tool is available to open the jaws and release the cable to start over.
“With the expansion of the Quick-Connect® line we’ve provided cable installers more flexibility in the field. Not only are there more fitting styles to accommodate virtually any railing installation condition or design need, but the functional simplicity of the fittings also saves a lot of time during installation,” said Andrew Toimil, VP of operations at Feeney. “There are no time consuming and cumbersome crimp tools or wedge-type compression fitting parts, and no time is wasted taking exact railing measurements. The installer simply purchases the individual fittings along with a spool of cable and then quickly attaches and cuts as he works through the installation. It’s very easy”
These new fittings are designed for 1/8” diameter, 1×19 and 7×7 construction stainless cable and are made from high-quality 316 marine-grade stainless steel with a tumbled satin finish for weather-tough durability, low maintenance, and long lasting beauty. In addition, the stainless steel contains over 70% recycled materials making for a friendlier eco-footprint
“Our goal was to provide our customers with a broader set of time-saving options when their projects required the creativity and beauty of custom assemblies,” said Andy Penny, VP of marketing at Feeney. “With this new line of products they can enjoy the versatility of custom assemblies with ease of installation that comes with using our field attached Quick-Connect® cable fittings”
