Tensioned Wire Trellis System
Made to Measure Tensioned Wire Trellis
Tensioned Stainless Steel Wire Trellis
Utilising stainless steel wire under tension between stainless steel stand-off's this system allows for large scale trellis installations.
Our simple system allows for ambitious and creative wire trellis applications. We have designed our system to be versatile, easy to use and extremely affordable.
Made from 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel in the UK, our tensioned plant training system will allow for high strength, high load applications.

Tensioned Wire Trellis Information
How to measure your trellis wire lengths:
To specify the required length of the cable assembly simply give us the length required between the 2 fixing points.
How to install your trellis wire:
Each cable can span up to 20 metres and still achieve good tension.
The system can be mounted either vertically or horizontally.
Important: For a perfect fit you will need to leave no more than 30mm of thread protruding from your mounting surface.
The dual thread pin allows direct installation into hardwood timber and if combined with the correct rawl plug it is attachable to almost any masonry surface.

Installation of made to measure tensioned wire trellisPreparation
Plan your project in advance to ensure you have the correct number of mounting hubs, wires and fittings.
You will need a few simple houshold tools for a quick and easy installation: Chalk/Pen, Drill, Hex Head Key, Wrench and Spanner.
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 pilot holes, taking factors such as brick spacing into consideration.
2. Drill Pilot Holes
The dual thread pin allows direct installation into hardwood timber (such as oak) or if combined with the correct rawl plug it is attachable to almost any masonry surface. We recommend a 3mm or 4mm drill piece for wood installation or a 7mm if using a brown rawl plug (on brick you may need to opt for an 8mm drill to reduce the chance of cracking).
3. Insert Dual Thread Screw
Ensure you leave no more than 30mm of thread protruding from the mounting surface for a perfect fit.
A: Timber Mount Screw in the dual thread screw into place using the hex head key.
B: Masonry Mount Insert rawl plug first and then screw in the dual thread screw into place using the hex head key.
4. Attach Hubs
Screw the surface mounting hubs onto the dual thread screws, aligning the centre holes with each other.
B: Perfect alignment of the cross holes can be achieved by simply turning the adjustable base plate of your hub in or out.
5. Attach Ready Made Wire Cable
Place the threaded end studs into position through the hub fixing holes.
6. Attach M8 Nuts
Starting at one end, attach a M8 nut.Remember to leave only a small amount of thread showing, so that when you tension the wire, more thread will be revealed to provide thread for the dome end nut.
Once in place attach the remaining M8 nut to the opposite end.Ensure both ends are finger tight with an even amount of thread showing.
7. Applying Tension
When applying tension it is important that you do not allow the wire rope twist. We recommend using a 6mm spanner or a set of grips on the spanner flat of the threaded end assembly to hold the wire in place.
Use a 13mm spanner to tighten the M8 nuts evenly in slight increments until you have the required tension.
Ensure you leave the same amount of thread protruding at each end.
8. Attach The M8 Dome Nuts
Once you have tensioned the wire rope, simply attach and tighten a M8 dome nut against the M8 nut at each end.
This will provide a safe and stylish finish to your tensioned wire trellis system.
Tensioned Wire Trellis Examples
Adding Vertical Trellis Wires with Cross Clamps
You can add vertical wires to horizontal tensioned wire trellis (see pic above) by using stainless steel wire cross clamps to hold the vertical wire in place.
Quick and easy to add to any new or existing wire trellis system, simply choose the clamp size to suit your wire diameter. View our full range of Cross Clamps.
We recommend using 4mm Wire Rope Cross Clamp for 90 degree cross over of wires.
