DIY Wire Balustrade Kit For Metal Posts

The Standard DIY Wire Balustrade Kit suits straight and angled sections using metal posts and is a true do-it-yourself kit supplied with stainless steel fittings and wire rope for installation on-site. Although this system has a much more involved and time consuming installation process, it is ideal for those on a strict budget. 



Wire and tools need to be purchased separately, see above.

This kit includes: 

4 x 4mm Rivets

2 x 5mm Saddles

1 x M5 Bottlescrew Jaw/Jaw

2 x 3.2mm Thimbles

2 x 3.2mm Swage Sleeves

Order 1 kit per wire run required.  WIRE TO BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY OR VIA THE ACCESSORIES OPTIONS ABOVE 


How To Install Balustrade System 

1 - Mark and drill all 4mm holes at the required spacing. 


2 - Slide one end of your wire through a swage sleeve and guide it around your thimble. Complete the loop by inserting the end of the wire back through the swage sleeve, leaving 2mm of protruding wire. Swage the swage sleeve two times spaced slightly apart using the HS-14CR tool on setting 3. 

3 - Insert a saddle through your loop and mount to your end post using the rivets provided. A pop rivet tool is required to insert rivets. With the saddle and wire fixed to your end post, pull the wire straight to the inside face of the opposite end post and cut the wire 100mm shorter. Pass the wire through your pre-drilled intermediate posts and create a loop as per step 2.


4 - Attach a saddle to the opposite end post using timber screws.  Remove the pins from both ends of your bottlescrew by unattaching both rings.  Attach one end of the bottlescrew to the loop in your wire and the opposite end to mounted saddle, reinsert pins and rings.  Adjust tension on the wire by screwing or unscrewing the middle section of the bottlescrew using a ProRig Multi Tool


5 - Lock hex nuts against the body of the bottlescrew to lock the system into place once correct tension is achieved.  For accurate and consistent tension you will require a tension gauge, however you can measure the tension by a deflection test.
