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.

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


Stainless Steel Balustrade Wires Running Through Intermediate Posts

Feeding through posts:

The wires can run up to 10 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


These deck balustrade wire system is designed for either timber posts or masonry wall surfaces using a 3" 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.

Socket is mounted to surface feature by securing a screw or bolt into a drilled hole.

An alternative method for mounting at 90 degrees is shown below, please contact us for information:
