Horizontal Tension Wire Infill Balustrade

  1. THE SYSTEM - Horizontal wires give an open spacious feel. Easy to look after and great value.

    Generally suitable for commercial areas without small children. Garden landscaping projects. Domestic areas that do not need planning permission such as low level decks below. 

    Please consult you local planning office if you are in any doubt on your project.

  2. STAINLESS STEELWORK - Our systems come in two grades of stainless steel, 304 grade for internal applications and a 316 marine grade for external applications.
  3. DIAMETER - The round tube comes in two sizes, 42.4mm for a light system and a 48.3mm diameter for a stronger system. The 48mm is generally but not exclusively used for our outdoor projects. (40 x 40mm square box section is also available)
  4. FINISH - The most popular is a brushed satin finish but we recommend a bright polished finish in coastal locations.
  5. TENSION WIRE - Our standard would be a 4mm 316 marine grade version as can be seen in most of our photos. We have a fully equipped rigging shop and as such we can offer different diameters and terminations.
  6. TOP RAIL - In most designs a top rail is essential on a tension wire system as this rail forms a frame able to resist the tension loads. This rail can be dispensed with on some low load systems such as ground level decking areas where the system is a feature and not acting as a guard rail..
  7. MOUNTING - The most common is a welded base plate with rosette cover for floor, deck mounting. Side mountings in various formats can cater for most situations.

  1. MADE TO MEASURE - All of our systems are of a modular construction and are made to measure. Posts base plates are welded but items such as rail elbows, saddles etc are bonded in place during installation giving a smooth finish.

    NOTE: UK Building Regulations prevent the use of any climbable system infill such as horizontal wires on domestic balconies and certain areas with a drop greater than (600mm domestic applications) Vertical wires and glass will comply with the regulations in such instances. 

  3. LOAD RATING -  We have test data available on request for all of our systems. All version meet the  rating requirements for domestic use with some meeting higher ratings for commercial use.
