What are the posts and caps made from? - Do you know the dimensions of the post and caps of this railing. Also the type of wood used for the handrail. Is the cable continuous at the directional changes? The distance you can travel and maintain tension? Thank you, Rob.

The posts are 6 x 6 off the shelf PVC posts although you could make them up out of wood.. The wood rails are mahogany 2 x 4's The cable is not continuous around the corners. I believe the most recent cable we installed said the longest run was 40 feet. That might be different depending on cable manufacturer.
