Wire Balustrade - Timber Insert System
Is one of our most streamline systems. It is suitable for use with timber posts and is great for both straight sections and stair sections. Tension is created on the wire by threading the LHT/ RHT swage studs into the LHT/ RHT timber inserts. Tightening the nuts against the head of the timber inserts locks the system in place.

Wire Balustrade FAQ'S for this system
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 Timber Insert System?
A: You will require an 7.5mm hole to a depth of 35mm in your end connection posts to install the Timber Inserts. For your intermediate posts, an 8mm hole will be required to pass the threaded terminal through.
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 system for Stairs?
A: Yes the Timber Insert System can be used on stairs but you will require 1 x LHT Swivel Connector and 1 x RHT Swivel Connector per wire.
Q: What measurements are required for the Wire Balustrade Timber Insert System?
A: Please give us your inside post to inside 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 Timber Insert 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: As 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: I need any special tools to install this Wire Balustrade System?
A: You will require a power drill, 8mm drill bit, M6 Hex Drive Bit, and an adjustable spanner.
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.
