Wire rope balustrade has a minimalist look which complements most settings. Most suited as a dividing fence in landscaping. Wire rope balustrades can be installed in straight lines or around corners, allowing curved areas to be easily accommodated.
We offer many bespoke variations to help you create the style you want (Please see bespoke options below)
Our Standard Post & Wire Rope System:
Comprised of circular stainless-steel posts with clearance holes for taut wire ropes to pass through, horizontally.
The wire rope is a multi-strand system, for extra strength. Made from durable, stainless steel wires (Available between 3-8mm in diameter)
Fitted with the use of eye-bolts and tensioners to ensure correct tension.
The posts are fixed in position with base plates at the bottom. These fixing plates are hidden with the use of elegant circular cover roses (This system can also be side-fixed depending on your preference, subject to structural fixing requirements)
We manufacture our posts from Grade 316‘Marine Quality’ Stainless Steel.
Chosen for its durability & excellent resistance to corrosion and rust. Ideal for outdoor use, even in windswept locations, exposed to the elements.
The Satin finish we use hides fingerprints and marks very well, requiring minimal cleaning & maintenance.
Depending on purpose of use, the addition of a handrail is usually advised with this system (Please see bespoke options below)
ALL OF OUR SYSTEMS CONFORM TO BS6180: 2011 & ARE AVAILABLE AS BOTH SUPPLY & DELIVER ONLY OR WITH INSTALLATION
