Installation Advice

The balustrade wires in place

Before installation we would recommend you consult with your local building control.

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.

Vertical posts should be spaced at a maximum of 2 metres apart to ensure a strong frame.

Measuring Balustrade Wire

Measure twice, cut once!

Self Assembly System Balustrade Diagram

Please be as accurate as possible when cutting your wire, always double check before cutting.

Each cable has an adjustment of plus or minus 20mm.

Where can I mount my balustrade sockets?

This deck balustrade wire system is suitable for mounting onto either timber posts or masonry wall surfaces using a 70mm countersunk wood screw (supplied).

Note : If mounting onto 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.


Cable lengths?

You can run cables up to 10 metres!

Pass cables through any intermediate posts to minimise the number of cables you'll need!

DIY Installation Instructions

1. Getting Started

It is a good idea to layout your design onto the relevant surface with a pen or chalk prior to drilling any holes.

Layout Your Project

2. Drill Pilot Holes

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).

Drill Pilot holes

3. Mount Hubs into Position

Using a screwdriver fix the surface mounting hubs using the stainless steel wood thread screws.
Tip: Position the opening facing downwards for a better final look.

Mount Hub into Position

4. Prepare Pre-Fixed Ball End

Starting with the pre-fixed tension ball end, screw out the ball end to reveal approximately 20mm of thread, you will need this to apply your final wire tension once installed.

Prepare Pre-Fixed Ball End

5. Mounting Pre-Fixed Ball End

Place the pre-fixed tension ball end into the mounting hub.

6. Mark Wire for Cutting

Pull the cable over to the other fixing post and align to the spanner flat of the DIY compression fitting.

Mark your wire ready for cutting with either a pen or chalk.

Note: The stand off from the mounting hub is 30mm.

Mark Wire for Cutting

7. Cut Wire

Cut your wire to required length, we recommend using a set of good wire rope cutters to give you a neat and tidy cut.

Remember - measure twice, cut once! Please be as accurate as possible.

Each cable will have an adjustment of plus or minus 20mm.

Cutting Wire

8. DIY Compression Fitting

You are now ready to attach the DIY end fitting.

The first step is to take apart your DIY compression fitting.

9. Thread Nose Piece onto Wire

Taking the blank cable end place the nose piece over the stainless steel wire rope (ensuring the thread end is towards the end of your wire).

Thread Nose Piece onto Wire

10. Thread Cone onto Wire

Thread the cone onto the wire and push into the threaded cone chamber.

11. Place Ball End onto Wire

Take the stainless steel body and push onto the wire, eventually bringing the three component parts together.

Turn in opposite directions to thread them together.

Place Ball End onto Wire

12. Secure Ball End Fitting

Using a pair of 8mm and 9mm spanners screw the two sections together until tight.

Secure Ball End Fitting

13. Mounting Ball End Fitting

Insert the DIY ball end into the fixing hole of the hub.

Note: if you require more slack in your wire to insert the DIY end simply return to the fixed end ball and unscrew to expand to the required length.

Mounting Ball End Fitting

14. Tension Wire

Returning to the pre-fixed ball end, simply screw in the thread using a 5mm spanner to achieve the desired wire tension.

Once you have achieved this lock the nut into place using a 10mm spanner.

It is important that the wire rope is not allowed to be twisted.

Tension Wire

Tensioning Sequence

Tensioning Sequence

To tension the balustrade wires, we recommend starting from the centre and working out (see example diagram below). Do not fully tighten individual wires as this will create uneven tension throughout your system, just tighten enough to hold in place. Once all your wires are installed, tighten each wire in turn by slight increments to achieve a solid and fully secure finish.

A Very high quality product and easy to install. I spent the extra £12 on a pair of Sealey 5mm Wire Rope Cutters for this job and I highly recommend this as they made trimming the wire rope down the correct length easy, cutting the wire rope off cleanly which makes fitting the end termination straightforward.

What a great product - it's really given our small deck area a unique and upmarket look. So much better than the wooden railing that was there previously. A bit spendy, but worth it. The fittings were really easy to install, and feel very secure. Really pleased!

Great product, and was convinced into purchasing from S3i due to the clear instructions and video on their website. Product arrived swiftly after purchase, and all was in order upon arrival. Followed online instructions and the product is now fitted successfully and looks great. It has a professional appearance and was done at a fraction of the cost of fitment quotes received. If you are thinking of this product for fence or deck surround then this simple, elegant kit ticks all the boxes. Can't recommend highly enough.
