Feedback & Project Recommendations
We are always happy to offer feedback on our system and answer any questions we can about your project. However, a recommendation, materials estimate, or quote is not a guarantee. We cannot take the place of an on-site installer. Ultimately it is your responsibility to ensure the supplies ordered are sufficient to meet all project specifications, and that your finished project complies with all local building codes. If you have any concerns, please contact a professional builder or installer to assist with your project.
Cable Bullet and the International Residential Code (IRC)
System Limitations & IRC Guidelines
Properly installed, a Cable Bullet cable run can be tensioned to 150 lbs and support a 200 lb load mid-span per cable run.
It is our understanding that the IRC, 2021 Edition requires each individual cable be able to support at least 50 lbs, and that a one square foot area, i.e. three cable runs combined, supports 200 lbs.
Furthermore, the 2021 IRC also requires that a four-inch sphere not be able to pass through the space between your cable runs, wherein it does not specify a force driving the 4-inch sphere. It is our interpretation that the requirements set forth by the 2021 IRC, are to be applied sequentially, and not cumulative.
Cable Bullet cable rail is designed for residential interior and exterior railing infill only. We will not be held responsible for damages or injury due to improper installation, or failure in an application other than residential railing, and will not be held liable for anything beyond the cost of items purchased at their original purchase price.
Installation Guidelines for IRC Compliance
Cable Bullet installation instructions are designed to satisfy stricter interpretations of the 2021 IRC. To that end, we recommend spacing your cables no more than 3 inches apart and adding cable support every 3-1/2 to 4 feet. The distance between tensioning posts should be limited to 20 feet using 7x7 braid cable. Cable Bullet is designed for use with 5/32” diameter wire only (1/8" for vertical system). All testing is performed with type 316 stainless steel wire. Properly installed and tensioned to 150 lbs, a 50 lb load applied to a single cable mid-span, will cause the cable to deflect 1/4-inch per foot.
Because building codes and interpretations can vary by jurisdiction, it is the responsibility of the installer to verify that the finished railing complies with all local building codes. If you have any questions about your project, please contact your local building inspector before placing an order. The same holds true for any international building codes applicable outside of the United States.
Maintaining Optimal Performance
To maintain the optimal beauty and performance of your cable rail system we recommend inspecting your hardware every 3-12 months. The frequency with which you treat your railing will vary by project. Exterior applications in a salt-water environment will need to be regularly checked, cleaned, and treated using a marine-grade stainless steel cleaner and protectant. Interior railing may be cleaned and treated as needed. Cable Bullet will not be held liable for damage caused due to misuse or neglect on behalf of the installer or owner.
The internal tensioning mechanism should be lubricated every 12 months, or as needed, to maintain full tensioning capabilities. Re-tension your cables as needed using a 3/32-inch or 1/8-inch Allen key.
Distribution & Retail Sales
At Cable Bullet, we value a business model that is based on our sales and support directly to homeowners, contractors, and installers. Because of that, we strictly prohibit the resale of our products by any distributor or retailer through their website or storefront to the general public without prior written consent from Cable Bullet. Should a business be found offering such sales without consent, Cable Bullet reserves the right to deny all future sales to the offending business.

11. Dispute Resolution:
In the event that there is a dispute, claim, or controversy between you and Us, or between you and Stodge Inc. d/b/a Postscript or any other third-party service provider acting on Our behalf to transmit the mobile messages within the scope of the Program, arising out of or relating to federal or state statutory claims, common law claims, this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this agreement to arbitrate, such dispute, claim, or controversy will be, to the fullest extent permitted by law, determined by arbitration in Warsaw, Indiana before one arbitrator.
The parties agree to submit the dispute to binding arbitration in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) then in effect. Except as otherwise provided herein, the arbitrator shall apply the substantive laws of the Federal Judicial Circuit in which Cable Bullet’s principal place of business is located, without regard to its conflict of laws rules. Within ten (10) calendar days after the arbitration demand is served upon a party, the parties must jointly select an arbitrator with at least five years’ experience in that capacity and who has knowledge of and experience with the subject matter of the dispute. If the parties do not agree on an arbitrator within ten (10) calendar days, a party may petition the AAA to appoint an arbitrator, who must satisfy the same experience requirement. In the event of a dispute, the arbitrator shall decide the enforceability and interpretation of this arbitration agreement in accordance with the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”). The parties also agree that the AAA’s rules governing Emergency Measures of Protection shall apply in lieu of seeking emergency injunctive relief from a court. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding, and no party shall have rights of appeal except for those provided in section 10 of the FAA. Each party shall bear its share of the fees paid for the arbitrator and the administration of the arbitration; however, the arbitrator shall have the power to order one party to pay all or any portion of such fees as part of a well-reasoned decision. The parties agree that the arbitrator shall have the authority to award attorneys’ fees only to the extent expressly authorized by statute or contract. The arbitrator shall have no authority to award punitive damages and each party hereby waives any right to seek or recover punitive damages with respect to any dispute resolved by arbitration.
THE PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY VIA ARBITRATION AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ARBITRATION PROCEEDING. Further, unless both parties agree otherwise in a signed writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding.
Except as may be required by law, neither a party nor the arbitrator may disclose the existence, content, or results of any arbitration without the prior written consent of both parties, unless to protect or pursue a legal right. If any term or provision of this Section is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality, or unenforceability shall not affect any other term or provision of this Section or invalidate or render unenforceable such term or provision in any other jurisdiction. If for any reason a dispute proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, the parties hereby waive any right to a jury trial. This arbitration provision shall survive any cancellation or termination of your agreement to participate in any of our Programs.
12. State Law:
We endeavor to comply with the Florida Telemarketing Act and the Florida Do Not Call Act as applicable to Florida residents. For purposes of compliance, you agree that we may assume that you are a Florida resident if, at the time of opt-in to the Program, (1) your shipping address, as provided is located in Florida or (2) the area code for the phone number used to opt-into the Program is a Florida area code. You agree that the requirements of the Florida Telemarketing Act and the Florida Do Not Call Act do not apply to you, and you shall not assert that you are a Florida resident, if you do not meet either of these criteria or, in the alternative, do not affirmatively advise us in writing that you are a Florida resident by sending written notice to us. Insofar as you are a Florida resident, you agree that mobile messages sent by Us in direct response to mobile messages or requests from You (including but not limited to responses to Keywords, opt-in, help or stop requests and shipping notifications) shall not constitute a “telephonic sales call” or “commercial telephone solicitation phone call” for purposes of Florida Statutes Section 501 (including but not limited to sections 501.059 and 501.616), to the extent the law is otherwise relevant and applicable.
To the extent the law is relevant and applicable to the Program, we endeavor to comply with the commercial telephone solicitation requirements pursuant to the Revised Code of Washington (RCW) (including but not limited to sections 80.36.390, 19.158.040, 19.158.110 and 19.158) as applicable to Washington residents. For purposes of compliance, you agree that we may assume that you are a Washington resident if, at the time of opt-in to the Program, the area code for the phone number used to opt-into the Program is a Washington area code.
You warrant and represent to Us that you have all necessary rights, power, and authority to agree to these Terms and perform your obligations hereunder, and nothing contained in this Agreement or in the performance of such obligations will place you in breach of any other contract or obligation. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein will not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder. If any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement will otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Any new features, changes, updates or improvements of the Program shall be subject to this Agreement unless explicitly stated otherwise in writing. We reserve the right to change this Agreement from time to time. Any updates to this Agreement shall be communicated to you. You acknowledge your responsibility to review this Agreement from time to time and to be aware of any such changes. By continuing to participate in the Program after any such changes, you accept this Agreement, as modified.
