The cables that WeatherSolve uses are up to the highest standards and are capable of handling larger loads than they are used for. People ask about the danger of breaking cables, but actually the danger is minimal. The fence has an overload releases system. It is designed to release the lower edges of the fabric panels before cables or poles break. The top edge has a much stronger attachment system and remains in place. This keeps the fabric attached to the structure even in hurricane force winds when other debris is blowing around that might puncture or overload the fence. The cables are securely shackled to at least one piece of fabric (via the top edge of the fabric which does not break loose) so the cable is not free to flap around. In addition the cables are firmly clamped at each pole so the longest piece of potentially loose cable is the pole spacing.
