Horizontal or vertical cable railings are commonly installed in commercial locations such as baclony or outdoor steps shown in photos below. The final approval is up to whether it is conformed to your local construction codes. As for the code requirements, the railings have to pass the specified height, strength, spacing, support and graspability rules as other types of railings.

Normally, the cable railing of top height is in most jurisdictions 36" -47" high in residential or in commercial installations. Along a stairway the railing height is governd by different rules because of the need to grasp the railing during use of the stairs. Handrails are required on all stairs more than four risers in height.
