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.

Installation Example: Mounting Onto Stainless Steel Posts
1. Getting Started
Layout your design onto the relevant surface with a pen or chalk prior to drilling any holes.
2. Drill Pilot Holes
You will need to drill and tap M6 holes into stainless steel posts to accept the socket and screw. ('tap' refers to the method of drilling a hole whilst adding an internal thread. A special drill bit is required to achieve this.)
We offer a wide range of balustrade tools and accessories to make your installation as smooth as possible.
3. Align Socket
Place the M6 screw through the centre hole of your socket and align to the post, with the socket opening pointing downwards, for a neat and tidy finish.
4. Fix Socket
Tighten the M6 screw with a hex head key until your socket is securely fastened to the post.
Alternative Fixing Option
You can use a suitable Stainless Steel Wood Screw, which will allow for flush mounting on to 42.4mm diameter timber posts and uprights.
