Wire Balustrade FAQ'S
Q: How long does it take for my wires to be manufactured?
A: If your wires are ordered by 2pm we will have them manufactured and ready for pick up or dispatch the following business day.
Q: How do my wires arrive to me?
A: All wires are bundled per section and labelled with your measurements for quick and easy installation on site.
Q: What size hole do I drill for the threaded Inserts?
A: 7.5mm hole to a depth of 40-45mm will be perfect.
Q: What size hole do I drill for my intermediate Posts?
A: An 8.0mm hole will allow the studs to be passed through your intermediate posts easily. you will need to take the nut off before feeding your wire through the intermediate posts.
Q: Do I need any specials tools to install this system?
A: Your wires will be made to length in our factory. To install your wires, you will only need common handyman tools including a power drill, drill bits, shifters etc. We also recommend purchasing an M6 Hex Drive Bit and a M6 C Spanner
Q: Can I use this system on stairs or angled sections?
A: You can use the Timber Insert System on stair sections, but we highly recommend adding swivel connectors on the stair sections. Swivel connectors allow the wire to be connected to the wire any stair angle.
Q: What size and type of wire should I use with this system?
A: As with all pre-made ready to install systems we recommend using 3.2mm 1 x 19 wire rope.
Q: What is the maximum length I can have run my wires?
The longest length run we would recommend for the Timber Insert System is 10 metres. Please note that some other systems may not be able to span this far.
Q: How many runs of wire do I need on my balustrade?
A: To comply with Australian NCC regulations for most wire balustrades you will need 80mm spacing between your wires. This is usually 11 runs of wire on a 1 metre high balustrade measuring 960mm to the underside of handrail. This applies to most decks over 1 metre from the ground and below 4 metres from the ground. There are additional restrictions that apply. We highly recommend reading our Wire Balustrade Regulations page for full details.
Q: What is the maximum spacing can I have between my posts?
A: To comply with Australian NCC regulations for most wire balustrades the maximum space you can have between posts will be 1500mm. We highly recommend reading our Wire Balustrade Regulations page for full details.
Q: Can I run my wire balustrade around corners?
A: We would strongly advise against bending your wire around corners and angled sections. This can fatigue the wire over time as well as damage your posts (especially timber). Wires should always be terminated at each corner and end post.
