Wire Balustrades Tensioner Terminal System

Wire Balustrade - Tensioner Terminal System

Is one of our most streamline systems. It is suitable for use with timber posts and metal posts and is great for both straight sections and stair sections. Tension is created on the wire by threading the Allen Key Tensioner onto the swage stud of the wire using an Allen key. Please Note: This system is threaded right through the end posts and requires tensioning on the outside faces of the post. It is not recommended for corner sections.

Our Bright Finish range offers a stylish and extremely durable finish to your wire balustrade system. Made from high quality 316 Grade stainless steel and processed to perfection this bright stianless steel finish offers long term corrosion resistance with a smooth and shiny lustre.

Q: How long does it take for my wires to be manufactured?

A: If your order is confirmed by 2pm we will have your wires manufactured and ready for dispatch or pick-up the following business day.


Q: What hole size do I need in my posts for the Wire Balustrade Tensioner Terminal System?


A: You will require an 8mm hole in your end connection and intermediate posts.


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



Q: Can I use this Wire Balustrade System for Stairs?


A: Yes the Tensioner Terminal System can be used on stairs but you will require 2 x 35 Degree Bevelled Washers.


Q: What measurements are required for the Wire Balustrade Tensioner Terminal system?


A: Please give us your outside post to outside post measurements between your connection posts and we will take care of the rest.


Q: What is the maximum length I can use with the Tensioner Terminal System?


A: The maximum recommended span between connection posts for this system is 10 metres.


Q: What size and type of wire should I use for this system?


A: with all factory made systems we recommend using 3.2mm 1x19 wire. The fittings are hydraulically pressed onto the wire for a super streamline system.


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


A: Just common handyman tools. You will require a power drill, 8mm drill bit, Allen key and an adjustable spanner.


Q: How do my wires arrive to me?


A: wires are bundled per section and labelled with your measurements for quick installation on site.


Q: Can I run my Wire Balustrade around corners?


A: 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: 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.
