Where would you normally use Stainless Wire Balustrade Kit P ?
For hydraulically swaged 3.2mm cable balustrading between hollow metal posts. (Not suitable for timber posts)
This kit can be used for horizontal balustrade and/or angled balustrade. What parts make up the kit ?
1 x SSW056-6 (M6 Terminal Right Hand Thread)
1 x SSW070-6 (M6 Terminal Left Hand Thread)
1 x SSW045-6 (M6 Flip Lock Connector Right Hand Thread)
1 x SSW046-6 (M6 Flip Lock Connector Right Hand Thread) What are the fittings made out of ?
316 Stainless Steel, which means they can be used both in external and internal application. Which wire cable rope is best suited ?
The fittings will work only with 3.2mm stainless wire cable rope.
1 x 19 configuration for the cable is the best fit, but 7 x 7 and 7 x 19 will also work. Which tools do I need ?
The SSW056-6 (M6 Terminal Right Hand Thread) and SSW070-6 (M6 Terminal Left Hand Thread) require the use of the IF120X (Hydraulic Swager) to fasten the fitting to the wire.
Other tools that will be handy to complete the job are IF122X (Wire Cutter) and two of the IF133X (Spanner Tensioner). How does it get fixed to a metal post ?
For Horizontal balustrade; drill a 8.5mm hole into the wall of the post, then insert the fitting. The flip section will then engage and will stop the fitting from pulling out of the post.
For Angled balustrade (such as on a staircase); drill a 10.0mm hole into the wall of the post, then insert the fitting. The flip section will then engage and will stop the fitting from pulling out of the post. Can it be used for exterior application ?
As it is 316 Stainless Steel it is more than suitable to be used inside or outside. Do you have any instructions on how to install the kit ?
