Is this system made from 316 (marine) grade stainless steel?
Yes, all our systems and components are made of 316 grade stainless steel.
Can I install this system myself?
Yes, all our systems have been designed for easy installation.
What tools will I require to install your stainless steel wire balustrade kit?
For metal posts you would only require the stainless steel spanner set (set of three). For timber posts a counter borebit, Phillips drive bit and stainless steel spanner set, all of which are available to purchase. Note: tool kit is only required once.
What type and size of wire can I use?
We recommend 1 X 19 strand, 3.2mm, 316 grade stainless steel only as it has the least amount of flex and is more durable.
What are the spacings between cables?
For Australia, if your deck is more than one metre and less than four metres off the ground you will require cable spacings of 80mm which equates to 11 cables if your post Height is 960mm. For decks that are more than four metres off the ground you would have to run the cable vertically. Please see our Vertical Cabling systems Page.
Can I run this system vertically?
Yes
Can I run cable around corners in a Horizontal Cable run?
NO. Cable of 1 X 19 strand can NOT be run around corners. Whenever there is a change in angles you have to change the fittings.
Can I run cable through intermediate posts in a Horizontal cable run?
Yes, if it is in a straight run. If the cable comes to you already swaged to the swage studs, you will require for metal posts a 8.5mm hole with the use of a grommet and a 10mm hole for timber posts. Once again, grommets are used to seal the hole in the timber and keep moisture out.
