Installation:

Threaded rod into concrete:

Threaded rod will require you to drill an appropriate hole into concrete to accommodate your 6 mm diameter rod. The diameter of your hole can be slightly bigger than the rod itself so that you can insert correct amount of epoxy into the hole. You can insert rod 70 mm to 80 mm hole and leave 20 mm - 30 mm exposed for the sockets to tension onto.

Dual Thread Screw into wood:

This Dual Thread Screw will require you to drill a small pilot hole into your wooden posts. Rule of thumb: A smaller pilot hole for soft wood and a bigger pilot hole for very hard wood.

This Dual Thread Screw is only suitable to use with Left hand threaded Swage sockets that can take a 4 mm cable. The Dual Thread Screw will go into you post to a depth of 40 mm deep and the steel thread remains exposed for the female swage socket to be turned onto the thread of the screw.

    Our Balustrade cables are suitable to be used on interior staircases, balustrades and lofts. Cables are also extremely popular outside on balustrade decks, balconies, walkways, staircases, Pergolas & Juliet balconies.

    The steel fittings are suitable to be used in conjunction with a range of natural woods like, Balau, Garapa, Rhodesian Teak, Saligna and Pine wooden decking.

    Synthetic decking and composite wood decking products are also very popular and are sometimes preferred over natural wood. This is due to requiring less maintenance and due to engineered wood products are resistant to rotting, splintering and warping.
