Deck Wire Balustrade Measurement

Measure the distance between the inside faces of the fixing posts in millimetres.

Remember - measure twice, cut once! Please be as accurate as possible. Each cable will have an adjustment of plus or minus 20mm.

+/-20mm of adjustment

TIP: You can run balustrade wires up to 10 metres passing through any intermediate posts to minimise the number of cables you'll need!


Wires Running Through Intermediate Posts

Feeding through posts:

The wires can run up to 12.5 metres in length and the threaded ball can be unscrewed allowing you to feed the cable through any intermediate deck posts (you'll need a clearance hole of at least 7mm).

Stainless Steel Deck Cable Fittings


This deck balustrade wire system is designed for either timber posts or masonry wall surfaces using a 70mm countersunk wood screw.

The socket is mounted to the surface feature by securing a screw or bolt into a drilled hole.

If mounting to masonry surfaces please drill a hole and insert a plastic plug before fastening. Sometimes if a wall is particularly brittle or old - a chemical resin may be applied to further strengthen the hold.
