Q: How do my wires arrive to me?
A: All 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: 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.
