Information

Where can I install my wire trellis kit:

The system can be mounted either vertically, horizontally or diagonally onto masonry and timber surfaces.

Vertical gardens offer the advantages of increased growing area and increased accessibility.

No matter which direction you decide to go, we recommend spacing your wires equally to provide an even coverage.

Tensioned wire trellis is perfect for climbers, creepers and rambling plants such as Ivy, Roses, Clematis, Nasturtiums Honeysuckles, Wisteria and vertical vegetable gardens.

Over time with care and attention plants will grow to provide a wonderful and unique feature to any garden setting.

Mounting

Important: For a perfect fit you will need to leave no more than 30mm of thread protruding from your mounting surface.

Cross clamps are available for the addition of vertical wires (please see below).

DIY Installation

Wood and masonry mounting

Mounting Trellis Hubs

The tensioned cable trellis system is suitable for flat mounting onto either wooden posts or masonry wall surfaces using the mounting screws supplied.

Note : when mounting onto masonry surfaces please drill a hole and insert a plastic wall plug before fastening. If a wall is particularly brittle or old - a chemical resin may be applied to further strengthen the hold.


An overview of DIY installation tips and advice.

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, taking factors such as brick spacing into consideration.

Layout Your Project

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).

Drill Pilot Holes

3. Insert Screw Fixing

Screw the dual thread screws in to place using a hex head key.

Ensure you leave no more than 30mm of thread protruding.

Insert Screw Fixings

4. Attach Hubs

Screw the surface mounting hubs onto the dual thread screws. Perfect alignment of the cross hole can be achieved by simply turning the adjustable base plate of your hub in or out, to ensure a secure and rigid fixing.

Attach Hubs

5. Attach Fixed Cable End

Thread your wire through the first hub, so that the fixed wire end can be secured - using a stainless steel nut (supplied). Remember to leave only a small amount of thread, so that as you tension the wire, more thread will be revealed to provide thread for the dome end nut.

Attach Fixed Cable End

6. Measure Your Wire

Place the DIY stud end in place through the other hub. Now simply tension the cable by pulling and align to the spanner flat of the DIY compression fitting. Mark your wire ready for cutting with either a pen or chalk.

Measure Wire Length

7. Cut Your Wire

Cut your wire to required length. We recommend using a set of good Hand Held Wire Cutters to give you a neat and tidy cut.

Cut The Wire

8. DIY Compression Threaded End Stud

You are now ready to attach the DIY threaded end stud.

The first step is to take apart the threaded end stud by unscrewing the threaded end stud from the nose piece.

9. Thread Nose Piece onto Wire Rope

Place the threaded nose piece over the stainless steel wire.

10. Thread Cone onto Wire Rope

Place Cone onto Wire Rope

11. Place Threaded End Stud onto Wire Rope

Take the stainless steel end stud and push onto the wire rope, bringing the three component parts together. Turn in opposite directions to thread them together.

12. Secure DIY End Fitting

Using 8mm and 9 mm spanners/wrenches, screw the two sections together until tight.

Secure DIY End Fitting

13. Position DIY End Fitting

Insert threaded end through the fixing hole of the hub.

14. Secure End Stud In Place

Attach the stainless steel nut and dome nut, Using a wrench tighten the nuts against each other to create a secure rigid fix.

15. Applying Tension

Now return to the pre-fixed cable end, using a 9mm spanner/wrench simply tighten the stainless steel nut to achieve the desired wire tension.

Applying Tension

16. Finish Your Assembly With The Dome Nut

When you are happy with the wire tension, thread the dome nut on and tighten the nuts against each other.

Tension wire is nice and sturdy for our intended horizontal trained apole and cherry tree for our back fence at our newly built house in our smallish garden. Looking forward to just trimming and keeping it neat rather than digging and weeding beds next year. KS

Very solid and easy to fit as long as a deep enough hole is drilled into the bricks behind. I would suggest drilling a 7mm hole as advised, then widening the first 1-1½cm with an 8mm drill to prevent the surface of the brick flaking as the double screw is turned in further on mounting the actual wire support. Other than that, the instructions are clear and the actual kit looks superb once fitted.
