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.

Measure From Hub Centre To Hub Centre

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 trellis


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.

Mark Out Your Layout

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 direct installation or a 7mm drill piece if inserting a rawl plug).

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.

Attach Hubs

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.

Attach M8 Nuts

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.

Apply Tension

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.

Adding Vertical Trellis Wires with Cross Clamps

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.
