Note: if you are using split grommets (106874FB or 106874FS) you will require an 11/32” hole (8.73mm ) in your intermediate posts.

Q: Do I need any special tools to install this Wire Balustrade System?

Q:  Can I run my Wire Balustrade around corners?


A: We strongly advise against bending your wire around corners and angled sections. This can fatigue the wire over time as well as damage to your posts (especially timber). Wires should be terminated at each corner and end post.


Q:  How many runs of wire do I need for my balustrade?


A: To comply with Australian NCC regulations most wire balustrades will require 80mm spacing between your wires when your intermediate posts are no more than 1500mm apart. We highly recommend reading the Wire Balustrade Regulations Help section of our website prior to ordering.
