Ingenious use for balustrade wire.

We are really impressed with this well thought out and unusual use for our surface mount balustrade wire system - Absolutely stunning idea!

Using the tensioned wire instead of a solid wooden trellis will allow for more light to pass through, and as the plants grow this will eventually produce a totally green screen.

Produced from 316 (marine) grade stainless steel these wire kits are ideal for garden and DIY projects - let your imagination run wild!.

The 100 day beard quest

The annual S3i rock festival outing is on the horizon.

To celebrate 100 days until Download Festival 2015, Andy from the web team has decided to let his facial hair go wild until the big event.

Over the past couple of years four members of the S3i team have relocated to Castle Donington Park for beer, BBQs and music.

For the guys it's a chance to let their hair down (obviously not Mark and Andy) and re-live some of their old rock days.
