Tensioner Swage Stud System

Tensioner Swage Stud System

 

Our Tensioner Swage Stud System is a popular streamline stainless steel wire balustrade system that passes through both sides of a post.  Available to suit both timber and metal posts, the Tensioner Swage Stud System is perfect for single straight or stair sections. Please note: It is not recommended this system be used where corners exist unless the intersecting wires are offset.

 

To install the Tensioner Swage Stud System, drill through your posts, feed the Swage Stud end of the pre-swaged wire through the finishing post and any intermediate posts then through the starting post and fasten the M6 Tensioner to create the required tension.

 

To order, simply measure the outside distance between the starting and finishing points of your posts and provide them to Miami Stainless either through our online Balustrade Builder or contact us directly via phone, fax or email. Your wires will arrive to your door pre-swaged to your exact measurements for a very quick and simple installation.

FAQ About This Method

 

Can I install this method myself? Yes, even someone with no experience can easily install all our wire balustrade systems.

 

Do I need any special tools? Because the Tensioner Swage Stud System arrives at your door pre-made from our factory you will only require common handyman tools such as an electric drill, drill bits and M6 Allen Key. You can purchase drill bits and an Allen Keys from Miami Stainless for easy installation if required.

 

What size and type of stainless steel wire do I use? This method is almost always used with 3.2mm 1 x 19 stainless steel wire rope. This wire is the most functional for stainless steel wire balustrade systems due to its bright surface finish, attractive appearance, durability, strength and low stretch.

 

What spacing do I need between my wires? When using 3.2mm 1 x 19 stainless steel wire, you will usually need 80mm spacing (usually 11 runs) between your wires when using a standard one (1) meter high handrail. Please click here for more information on the current NCC Wire Balustrade Regulations.

 

Can I use this balustrade system on a stair or angled section? Yes, the Tensioner Swage Stud System for timber and metal posts can be used for stair or angled sections when used with Beveled Washers.  For more information, please contact Miami Stainless here. 

 

What is the maximum length run I can do? The Tensioner Swage Stud System can easily span up to 10 meters. Spans of up to 16 meters can be achieved by using a Tensioner at each end, please contact Miami Stainless for further information.

 

What size hole should I drill through my intermediate posts? A 7.5mm hole through your intermediate posts will allow the Swage Stud pass through.

Please note: If you are using grommets, the required drill size is 11/32".

 

What size hole should I drill through my start and termination posts? A 7.5mm hole will suit the Rod Terminal end and the M6 Tensioner end will require a 9.0mm hole.

 

Can I take my balustrade wire around corners? Miami Stainless highly recommends that you do not bend your wire around corners; this can fatigue the wire, put excessive stress on your posts, and make it difficult to get the required tension on your wire to meet NCC Regulations.

 

Can I use this method if I have timber posts? Yes, you can use this system with timber posts. It is recommended that you use a standard flat washer on each outside face of your posts when installing this system with timber posts.  Note: Please advise Miami Stainless if you wish to use this system with timber posts.
