Installation Advice

We always recommend you plan your project in advance to ensure you have the correct number of posts, wires and fittings, remembering to take into consideration end post and corner post termination clearance and position.

Stainless steel wire cables should be spaced a maximum of 100mm apart, with vertical posts spaced at a maximum of 2 metres apart to ensure a strong frame.

The stainless steel wood screw allows direct installation into hardwood timber (such as oak) or, if combined with the correct plastic plug, it is attachable to almost any masonry surface (we recommend a 3mm drill piece for direct installation or a 7mm if inserting a plastic plug).
